Canvas Scripture Art and Winners Announced!

Hello blogger-friends!
It has been a long two weeks since I was here to post the first inspired stamps artwork challenge!   I have been in Florida with my father, who passed away in my arms just last Saturday from congestive heart failure.  It has been hard, and I continue to grieve the loss of such a wonderful daddy, but God has also been so good to me in this time!  As this verse says, "Love never fails", and it surely does not!

This is the first of two Canvas Scripture Art pieces I want to share with you, using my Love is... stamp set from the inspired stamps store  One thing I hear over and over from those of you who have purchased stamps from me is how crisp the images are that you stamp and I agree.  This size of stamp tends to be difficult to stamp, but not this one!  It stamped cleanly the first time!

I am teaching these canvas classes next week and am so excited at the response I have had to them! Those who take this class will learn how to make their own bouquet of paper roses, like this one, with some pink distressed stickles in the center:
Here is the finished canvas.  The stitching is done with the stitches in the Bind and Stitch set from the inspired stamps store and I find myself using that in so many projects!:
This is a 10x10 size and I left room for a photo above the word LOVE, but adding more flowers and sparkles would look great too!!

Because there were 4 entries into the first contest, all four entries were selected to receive a brand new stampset that is still in production as their prizes!!  I will mail them off to you as soon as I have them in February ladies!!  Be sure to email me your mailing addresses!!  And THANKS for playing along!!

I'll have the next canvas up Sunday night so be sure to come back then!!
Be the blessing!
