Doodle Daisy: Exodus 8: 9-11


Oh my dear friends this is a beautiful Sunday! Spring has sprung in Florida and we are enjoying every minute of it! It is once again time for another challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ .

On this glorious weekend PeggySue chose the scripture and challenge. That verse is Exodus 8: 9-11.

"...and the Lord did as Moses had asked. The frogs in the houses and courtyards and fields died off. Heaps and heaps of them were gathered up, and there was a stench in the land. But when Pharaoh saw that there was a respite, he became obdurate and would not listen to them, just as the Lord had foretold." New American Bible (Saint Joseph Edition)
Goodness - that is a lot to think about isn't it? Sometimes we can't help but think that we are living in a difficult time. Prices are high so is employment. There is unrest in many parts of the world and God is sometimes hard to find in many of our leaders. Yet those times certainly weren't a piece of cake either! Those were horrible plagues set upon the land - yet the Lord was with them and He did listen.

The challenge this week is to create a card or project that has green on it.I had a lot of fun with this free image that I downloaded from Doodle Pantry. I printed it several times on both white cardstock and on two different designer papers. I used a nestibility die for the butterfly and some fibers for the center of the flower. I popped up the petals and the leaves to give it some dimension.

Our sponsor this week is Doodle Pantry. They will be giving a $10 gift certificate to the winner. They have some really cute images - even a few free ones! The card I made was with a free image of the daisy - isn't it adorable?
