SSCC#27 & MMSC42 challenges

Hi friends !

Has it really been a week since my last post ? Do you ever struggle with this really good problem... multiple hobbies and limited time ? DH gave me a stack of new books for Valentine's Day and that's where my nose has been ... reading! The stamping itch came back today and I happily hit the stamp room .

My card today is for two challenges this week : this week my dear friend ,Laurie is challenging us to use timepieces or something denoting time or the passage of time in our card. The Scripture verse for the week is found in Esther 4: 14. I encourage you to check out the challenge here . I chose to use this verse from Nina Brackett's set found in Gina K's store. The dp was stamped with an old fashioned pocket watch stamp.

The sketch is this week's Midnight Madness challenge which you can find here.

Have a good evening. I'll be back with another post soon . Thanks SO much for stopping by!

Crystal, this is very inspirational not only with the words, but with your talent..It came out wonderful. Thank you for sharing it with us/me :)Oh I just wanted to let you know to mark your calendar for March 5th because that is when the Midnight Madness will be doing a huge giveaway. It will be a blog candy style with comment entries only. No card making on this one, but I really do not want our regular players to miss out on the opportunity to win. You will not be sorry you entered. As always, thank you so much for playing the Midnight Madness sketch challenges with us. We really love checking out all our entries work each week.
