Racing the Clock


I’m racing the clock to CHA at the end of the week, and trying to balance that mixture of excitement and anxiety! LOL! Really looking forward to seeing so many people who have become dear friends through this whole internet, blogging and sharing at Splitcoast during the last FIVE years. I cannot believe it’s been that long.

I finished my His Holy Name card on Sunday afternoon and posted at Splitcoast, but didn’t take the time to conjur up a blog post.  I was pretty busy looking at all of the uploads and sharing by members of Splitcoast for the Featured Stamper Challenge on Sunday afternoon. Beth, who hosts the challenge, selected me as this week’s Featured Stamper. What an honor to be chosen. But, honestly, I was feeling a little ‘exposed‘ to have that many people pilfering through my 4 year old gallery over there. My how the styles have changed! I won’t delete any of the old stuff, I think it’s important to remember your roots and where you’ve been.  Thank you to all of my friends and SCS Members who participated. I’m slowly leaving comments on all of the uploads in the gallery and enjoying everyone’s take on my work…beautiful, beautiful projects shared by many this week.

The His Holy Name WORD this month is Sovereign.

sov⋅er⋅eign: supreme rank, power, or authority,

If you enjoy studies by Beth Moore, this is a word you hear frequently…the spirit of the Sovereign Lord. Beth Moore used the scripture used here as a basis for her talk at a Living Proof Live event that I attended in 2006. I love that feeling that I can stand firm and resolute in any situation, if I’m walking with Him. Patter has shared some wonderful insight to Sovereign and what that promise means to each of us on her blog, Triple the Scraps.


Apologies for being brief. There are lots of  things to attend to today, but I didn’t want to delay my scripture share any longer.

  • Stamps: Fiery Floral (Cornish Heritage Farms)
  • Cardstock: Kraft, Real Red, Baja Breeze, Black (Stampin’ Up!)
  • Ink: Baja Breeze (Stampin’ Up!)
  • Accs: ribbon (Stampin’ Up!), flowers (Prima),  stick pin (Darice), buttons (fo0f-a-la), dew drops (Robin’s Nest), label one dies (Spellbinders)

    Congratulations on being the Featured Stamper! So totally deserved! I’m so sad that I won’t be hanging with all of you at CHA this weekend….. but I hope you have a truly FANTASTIC time! Can’t wait to see and hear all about it.

    Beautiful card – I’m off to go pick a card from your gallery to CASE for the FS challenge.

  5. Oh Lori, I love this verse – love the book “on Hind’s Feet” – I believe that’s the name – if you haven’t read it, you should get it. Beth Moore is so great – we are using her studies right now in a Bible Study too. I’m assuming you typed up the scripture. That’s a great idea – I’ll have to try that, when I get a new printer. Thanks for sharing – the card is gorgeous – love the flowers and buttons!

  6. What a beautiful card, Lori. The colors are just right to highlight the verse. Isn’t Beth Moore terrific? My favorite study so far has been The Patriarchs. Have a blessed day.
