Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching. (Hebrews 10:25 NIV)

And now on to our new challenge!  This week we have a fabulous sponsor who is granting the winner of this challenge an amazing prize - at $20.00 store credit! And there are also two runner up prizes too! Thank you, Lacy Sunshine, for sponsoring this weeks challenge!!  A little bit about Lacy Sunshine's creator - Heather Valentin:

In June 2012 I created my original and  one and only Eleanor and Pickles. They were the  first of my  many Lacy Sunshine Gang Characters.   This is  my heart and soul.  I have  told you before I am the  happiest  when I  paint and  create.  This is  what I  live  for.  It's  about  making  people smile and touching  their  lives with my  art.  I  hope it   shows  in my  work, especially the eyes.. which  are the windows  to my  characters' soul.   I  am  not  a newbie  to the  art  world.  I have  been  creating   since I  was  a little girl and   won my  first  art award  at  age   13.  I have  worked  with  major   companies...including but not limited to Nabisco, Coca-Cola, Outback Steak House, Sonoma Wines, Budweiser, Texas Roadhouse, and numerous children's  hospitals across the country.

The challenge? So many times we use our fancy papers to create our backgrounds for our images.  We challenge you to:

You can use watercolors, inks, stamps, or even your own drawing.  And who knows - 
you may just find that this could be a new favorite way to create backgrounds!

Now what kind of background are you going to create?  Remember that your creation can be any theme as long as it meets the current challenge theme and also your creation should also include a scripture, uplifting verse or positive words/quote.

Need a little inspiration?  Well let's start with a scripture:

"Your faithfulness extends to every generation, as enduring as the earth you created"
Psalm 119:90

And how about some eye candy for inspiration too?  Our Design Team was able to work with images from Lacy Sunshine.

Barb using Lil Scoop

Hillary using Eleanor Lady of Liberty

Pauline  (dealing with a family emergency, will be up soon!)

Vickie using Molly Fishing with Matthew 4:19 background
Zella using Twoo Love 

Did the cards from the Design Team inspire you to create a background?  We look forward to seeing your own backgrounds shared with us here. Don't forget to include a scripture, positive verse/quote, or uplifting verse.  Have a blessed week!

Should our Linky Tool fail us, share your creation through the comments section, with a direct link to your blog post.
