Sending You a Little Prayer

I recently won a challenge at My Craft Spot and won the most DARLING set of stamps from Kimberly's lovely shop.  She has the cutest stamp sets, and they stamp just beautifully!  She also makes the sweetest vintage crinkled seam binding and unique baker's twine.  Very cute stuff, indeeed. I first learned of Kimberly's/My Craft Spot  from my on-line friend, Melissa Phillips' blog.  Melissa uses LOTS of her seam binding on her darling projects.   Kimberly's shop is SO worth visiting - you will love it all, and she also has a super fun challenge each week.  Please stop by and let her know I sent you.  She will be so blessed to have you visit or play along!  And here is one of the sentiments from the stamp set I won on her blog:

When I saw the challenge at Stampin Sisters in Christ this week, I knew I wanted to play along.  So, I made this sweet cherub-looking little girl into an angel by adding some Tattered Angels wings that I painted and dusted with glitter.  I'm already seeing where I want to add little snippets of lace or trim.  Here is a link to their challenge this week:

Another super cute challenge blog I love to visit is The LawnScaping Challenge Blog which happens to be having a really FUN challenge this week.  They have a video and some awesome work from her Design Team.  You might want to take a peek and play along.  Here is a link to their patterned paper challenge:
