Water is such an important element in our lives, we can't live without it, just like our Lord and Saviour! It appears in so many places in the Bible, more than we realise.
This is my take on the Challenge, I created this little badge and a little tin to keep it in. the badge is 1" in diam to give you an idea of the size of theproject :O)
the badge is a made using the bible verse Psalm 1:1-3.
I want to be a tree who's leaf does not wither!
make sure you check out Salt and see what other ways the DT girls have interpreted this challenge, and keep an eye on what other people create too...
We'd love to have you join in the fun So come Join us.......

it is Keryn's turn to dare us, I know you've all got buttons stashed away somewhere, whether they've been purchased at a cardmaking store or you thriftily snipped them off DH's old shirt. I'd like you to find those buttons and use them somewhere on a card. They can be real buttons, craft shop buttons, die cut buttons, faux buttons or another type of button, surprise us all.
We're very happy to have not only the usual NZ, Aussie and UK contingent this week, but also cards from Germany - from our latest,
just wanted to say hi,
and let you know at the moment blogger is being a right pain and I can't upload any images :(
I also have a couple of wonderful links to add and it wont let me do that either
but I will keep trying and hopefully soon I'll be able to blog again.
Our home is slowly recovering from a very nasty cold/flu virus, we have all had it or still have it
Thankyou to all who wished us a speedy recovery... lets hope winter will soon be over ;o)
ooohhh in the meantime if you want to see a pretty picy I made and framed it's in the gallery at
The Stamping Queen

ok..for my piece, I looked up a couple of translations, and felt the 'message' version jumped out at me so that's what I went with, "I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of".
I'm so excited to be part of this fabulous group of ladies Lythan has pulled together, this is our second challenge at Salt, & we hope you'll come and Join us!
also, I've been missing in action a bit in blog land because after Georgia became sick, we all fell like a pack of cards, each of us in our family of 5 have all been quite sick and are still recovering... I'm off on retreat tomorrow afternoon for the weekend so am hoping to be much better for that, could really do with a weekend of Scrapping :O)
so I'll catch you all when I get back, have a wonderful weekend whatever you plan to do, and after our week, I wish you all GOOD HEALTH!!!

We are a diverse group of card makers, scrappers and altered art fans from across the world who have been brought together through our love of Jesus Christ and our desire to express our faith in creative ways.
Once every two weeks we will produce work based on a challenge which we hope will inspire you to produce work of your own - and we would love to see it.So that we can all know Jesus more clearly; love him more dearly; and follow him more nearly, each and every day.
Express your praise to God in whatever way you choose.Praise is such a wonderful word. We give praise to people - especially children when they have done something that makes us proud and pleases us. We give praise to God because he has done everything for us and we are proud to be his children.I think the team have come up with the most amazing selection of delights, especially considering this is our first go! You can find out more details about how, why and what we have made by visiting our individual blogs.
We would love to see your work too - a card, a layout, a canvas, a mini book... there are so many ways to praise. And if you link your blog here then we can visit and praise you too!
