Happy Sunday Everyone!! I hope you are all enjoying the weekend. I have a card to share with you for the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge. I apologize in advance for my short post. I am not feeling well and so my heart and brain aren't ready to write this post right now. Sorry!!

This week's hostess is Miesje. Miesje has chosen the verse: "Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28

What a comfort to know that whatever the circumstance, burden or trial you are going through, God is always there. While a friend or a loved one or even your own mother can not promise to be there for you at all times, God can!! What a comfort!!

Miesje's challenge this week is:
Make a card that symbolizes what brings you rest or peace. It could be flowers, an ocean, music, mountains, sitting with a friend, or just reading a book.

Here is my take on the challenge. Isabelle from Isabelle with Coco Puppy by Stampavie to me looks so peaceful after picking her flowers and sitting in the field, with a butterfly resting on her toe.

I had so much fun water coloring her and incorporating the Mojo Sketch.

Card Recipe:
stamps: Isabelle from Isabelle with Coco Puppy by Stampavie
Paper: SU Urban Garden
Accessories: ribbon, Labels 10 Spellbinders, sewing machine, pearls-blue, silver baubles
*Mojo Sketch
