It is He who will save us. Isaiah 33:22

I'm a lesson behind on Patter's His Holy Name challenges - but I'm catching up with this 6x6 page for Lesson 10 - God's attribute was LORD.
I chose this wonderful verse from Isaiah where we learn that God is pretty much it - our judge, our lawgiver and our king - and in exchange for accepting all that - it is he who will save us. I say let's go for that deal!
I used Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch for the design of my page. The crown is grunge board by Tim Holtz that I colored with a copic and then went over with a gold Spica pen for shimmer (IRL it really sparkles!). The verse is computer generated.

This also covers last Tuesdays Double Dog Dare that I do with some SCS friends. Michelle (sf9erfan) was the hostess and her challenge was a 1,2,3 one - we were to use 1)a metal embellishment, 2) a ribbon and 3) sponging. We'd love to have you join in on our DDC challenges - just put DDC in the keywords when you load your card on split coast. You can see all the DDC challenge cards here.

I also wanted to share a couple of pictures with you today - Sunday we had a beautiful warm sunny day - but towards early evening the sky darkened and we had a brief thunder storm - suddenly the sun was shining brightly even though it was still raining heavily and I just knew there would be a rainbow in the sky. I grabbed my camera (and umbrella!) and ran around the house looking for it and there it was - a double rainbow over my neighbors house. Can you see the hazy 2nd one above the flag?

And these giant bearded Iris beauties are blooming profusely in my garden right now - each stem has so many blossoms on it that they are bending down to the ground. So I cut a bunch and have them in vases around the house - they have the most delicious soft scent! This is one blossom!
And - I'd like to alert you to a super sale going on at H&M Stamps - Heather is selling all her stamp sets for $8 or less per set for the month of June! That is a super deal in these hard economic times! So hurry over and check them out - while supplies last! If you'd like some ideas - you can see cards I've made with H&M Stamps here.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
