Blast Off: Isaiah 40:26

Hello friends, welcome once again for a challenge based on scripture at Stampin' Sisters in Christ!

This week Diane is our challenge hostess and brings us the  verse from Isaiah 40:26.

“Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.”
I wasn't sure where I was going to go with this verse. It is overwhelming to think of His great power, of His knowing each and every one of us. Some of you  may know that we have 8 children (now adults with children of their own) and I remember another mother (of 1 child) asking me once how I could love and nurture each and every one them. I had thought about it and couldn't really come up with an answer other than that I love each and every one of them and couldn't imagine my life without them all. Now we have 18 grandchildren and I once again cannot imagine my life without them. That is just a portion of how He knows and cares for us. Out of this world! 

The challenge this week is; Create a card that depicts any element of heaven—angels, music, clouds, sun, stars, blue, glitter, bling, etc.

I made this card for one of my grandsons who has a birthday coming up this month. Yes, I make a lot of birthday cards and no two the same. I did something I had not done before, I used aluminum foil and cut out the pieces for the space ship and the stars. I like the way that turned out. For the flames I used the shaving cream technique on some glossy cs and cut it out. It was a fun card. 

This week our sponsor is Market Street Stamps, please give them a visit! 

Don't forget 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 and have a wonderful week surrounded with God's love.
