Wings of Hope...

Good morning fellow stampers!
As it is Sunday, it's time for the first challenge of 2011 at Stampin' Sisters in Christ!
The two week break has been very much appreciated,
but I think we are all happy to be back in our regular routines.
Our very talented sister, Chris, is the challenge hostess this week.
Our sponsor for this weeks challenge is Simon Says Stamp -
we greatly appreciate their continued support!
The Scripture that Chris has chosen for us is:
May the Lord repay you for what you have done. May you be richly rewarded by the Lord, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge.
~Ruth 2:12
Chris' challenge for us today, is to create a card or project which includes wings.
My card features a beautiful butterfly - when I think of wings, my mind immediately turns to butterflies and angels.
Please head over to the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge Blog, to see what wonderful words of wisdom Chris has left for us! While you are there, you can check out the beautiful creations of my DT sisters! I've been peeking, and I guarantee that you'll love what you see!

Stamps by Gina K. Designs. All coloring is done with pencils and mineral spirits.
Can't wait to see what YOU create...
I'm looking forward to seeing your 'wings' this week!!!
Hugs and blessings,
Patti J.
