Christmas Wonder: Isaiah 64:8

It was another busy week at work and now we are preparing for whatever  Isaac (hurricane) may bring our way. I work in Tampa and live only about 30 miles north, please keep all those in it's path in your prayers. Another Sunday also means that Stampin' Sisters in Christ has another challenge based on scripture for you!


This week Diane is the challenge hostess and the verse she chose is from Isaiah 64:8. Be sure to read her devotion for this week over on SSIC, her words are always inspirational.
"Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand."
I decided to make a Christmas card, the first of the year. I will be happy I did when November rolls around! This card was made with the digi stamps called, "Stocking Stuffers" sold at Daydream Designs which is owned by our very own Diane! I printed it twice and then cut out and popped up the holly and the candy cane. I also added some tiny red pearls and some really cool fuzzy white balls. It was fun to make a Christmas card without being under pressure!

The challenge this week is; Use punches, dies, or shapes of any kind.

This week our sponsor has asked to remain anonymous with a bag of stamps.

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.

Miesje - First, still praying for you down there! Second, this is a great Christmas card! I love the shape of the die for the sentiment. It's a great shape and I love the sentiment. That stocking is too cute too. I love stuffing my kids stockings and having something peeing out of the top.
Blessings,
