Simple Peace: Psalm 46:10

This is a busy weekend for me and also fun since I will have a house full of family by the time you read this.  I am so glad you could join us at Stampin' Sisters in Christ for another challenge based on scripture!


This week dear PeggySue is our hostess with the verse and the challenge. The verse she chose is so beautiful and powerful from the book of Psalms 46:10
"Be still and know that I am God "
Less is more - we have all heard that and even said it. This verse is short and sweet but has an incredible message! It is a message that I cannot hear too often. "Be still and KNOW that I am God" The be still tells me to not worry - just be still - He is and He is here. Powerful message!


CAS cards are not so "simple" for me. In fact this is the second card I made for this because the first became just a bit too fussy! I will have to use that one another time. All I did was stamp the dahlia onto the white panel then colored it with my Copics. Um - just was looking at the card and wondering if I stamped the image upside down? Is there an right and wrong with a single flower. Not sure now. Anyway - the sentiment is from one of GinaK's new stamps set called "The Vine" (designed by Melanie) and said exactly what I wanted this card to say. 

The challenge for this week is to make a CAS (clean and simple) card.
Our sponsor this week is Clear Dollar Stamps with a $15 gift card!

Miesje I love how this Dahlia looks. If it had a stem then we would know if it is upside down or not. Without one I think it looks great the way that you stamped it. I really like the colors that you used on it!! I hope that you have a fantastic, blessed week!!!

Ha, you are funny! I don't know if it is upside down or not, it looks wonderful to me! Love that bright splash of pink on the white! Hope you had a great time visiting with family, and yes, the KNOWing alone can bring great peace to our lives.
