Clearly Inspired Challenge 19, Take 2

     I decided I wanted to do another take on this "sticky situation," a little neater, but still sticky.  I can really see the analogy with our lives.  Sometimes, our mistakes, tough things in our lives, are not all that obvious, but they still keep us out of the will of God or from resting in the peace He has for us.  We can look "almost" okay.  God can see past that.  He can still fix it.  He's still the answer, if we let him be. 
     Clear Dollar Stamps has some amazing sentiments.  I want to play with them all!  And I am certainly enjoying their new die.  Now I need stamps to go with them!  I will be buying my own birthday present soon. Just to save DH the hassle.  LOL!

Clearly Inspired Challenges #19

This month's challenge from Clearly iStamp is food related, appropriate as we begin a season known for over-eating and other indulgences.  My stamped image is a sentiment, which I whole-heartedly believe, from Clear Dollar Stamps.  I illustrated that with a lollipop I made from Twistel paper yarn that I received in a generous RAK from a fellow Fiskateer.  Doesn't it look messy and sticky, just like life sometimes?

Stamping Scrapping Challenge: Yellow & Black

Made this for a bumble-loving friend before I knew about this challenge.  I might have done a few things differently, if I'd known I was going to be entering it.  You know, the old hindsight-is-20/20 thing.  Anyway, I did use the right products.  The tree is from Spellbinders Nesting Pines, the border punch is Martha Stewart's snowflake border (Love how you can use the fiddly-bits that fall out!) and it's all held together with scor-tape!  Thanks for looking!
