And These Little Piggies are the Sweetest of All


I had some time today to go blog hopping and stopped in to see what awesome creation Jenny Gropp had created today.  She had the cutest card using a sketch from Our Creative Corner.  I fell in love with it right away!

  

The challenge this week at Stamping Sisters in Christ  (SSCC28) is  based on Colossians 3:17. 

"And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."


How miraculous is the gift of life!  When I see the 10 little fingers and 10 little toes of a newborn babe, I am always awed and humbled.  He knows us in the womb.  The song I sang all day yesterday was "Our God is an Awesome God".  

How awesome is His creation of tiny toes and butterflies...both testimonies of His glory. 

Here's my take on the sketch challenge and in thankfulness for this new life ...what do you think?  Those are the sweet little toes of the granddaughter of one of my dearest friends.  I fell in love with the photo when she sent it in an email so I printed it out and saved it to make her a card.  The baby's colors are pink and brown so I wanted to incorporate those colors . 


The base paper is PTI Sweet Blush.  The DP is Debbie Mum's Noah's Ark.  I just love it! 

Supplies:
Paper - PTI Sweet Blush, Debbie Mum Noah's Ark
Stamps - Alesa Baker - inside sentiment (blog title)  :-)
Accessories - photo, buttons, butterfly (Michael's) ribbon, dimensionals

Precious card -- there's not much cuter than baby toes! Gorgeous DP and I love how you used a vellum butterfly; to me, it sums up how fleeting these baby days are!
