Every Minute: Ecclesiastes 3:1

Another Sunday and another chance to share some scripture with you, our faithful friends. I am so glad you could join us at Stampin' Sisters in Christ for another challenge based on scripture!

This week it is MariLynn as your hostess and the verse she chose is Ecclesiastes 3:1 . Be sure to stop by our home page to read her wonderful testimony.
"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens..."
This verse is wonderful to keep in my heart and mind all the time. Those of you who follow my blog and SSIC know some of the things that have been difficult for my family. Well, there is a season for everything and we are looking ahead to some wonderful things that are coming. We will have the arrival of one grandchild in April and another in May! What blessings they will bring to the entire family! New life - new season.
 

The challenge this week is to make a card that shows the passing of time. A clock ( for hours) a sun (for days) a calendar for (years) etc.

I was in the mood for a sketch challenge so I headed over to Sketch by Carly - and took her sketch to this challenge. I used stamp sets from 2 different companies. The sentiment  is from ODBD and the hourglass is from GKD. Love both of those. It was a simple card to make. The most difficult was the cutting of the hourglass because I wanted it to look 3D. I think that did it! 

Our sponsor this week is Digital Delights with 3 digis from the store!

Be sure to stop by my SSIC design sisters (listed on the sidebar) to see what they have to share this week:

It is always great to see you, thanks for the comments!

Congratulations on the arrival of two precious grandchildren in the Spring! And your sketch and take on the sketch for the SSIC challenge is wonderful. Hoping that winter, even before Spring is a time of refreshing renewal of health and promise of good things to come.
