Revelation 7:17

Gosh - I'm posting so late (again!). I worked all day and then had Bible study until 8 pm - but really wanted to get my His Holy Name challenge done tonight. I used the Split Coast sketch for my 6x6 page although I turned it on it's side and moved up the front panel a bit to accomodate my verse. This is week 8 of the His Holy Name Challenge and God's attribute was LAMB.

I used my new Green Tea Leaf designer paper's from Papertrey Ink as well as some brass ornaments (flowers, ladybug and scrolly) and a cross that I picked up last summer at the Brimfield Antiques Fair. The lamb is from the My Punny Valentine Set by PTI.

I really love the part of this verse 'and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes' - John is speaking about you and me here. What a wonderful promise for us!

You can join in on the His Holy Name challenge at any time - so check it out if the idea is interesting to you - Patter gives us her challenge every other Sunday. There's no deadline for getting any of them done. You just go at your own pace and you don't have to do every challenge.

I've got 3 really busy days coming up so don't panic if you don't see another post here until the end of the weekend - I'm having my hair cut tomorrow night, then DH and I are going to a play on Friday night - and then I am teaching two classes at the Papertree in Manchester NH on Saturday! If you are in the NH area - come by and say hello - Michelle has an absolutely wonderful stamping store there!!

This is beautiful, Julia! I love how you used the sheep image with the Lamb verse!

Oh... and the verification word I have to type is 'bless' which is so appropriate since you've blessed me with your scripture creation!
