New Salt Challenge: Joy

It was my turn to choose the topic for this fortnight's challenge. This is what I wrote:

We have been pleased to see folks joining in our challenges, including the wonderful creations for 'God's Promises'.

It's Hazel here; it's my turn to set the challenge this time and I've chosen


When things are going well in life we feel happy and joyful, but sometimes circumstances of life may cause us to feel sad, but even at those times we can still experience the joy of the Lord. I'm reminded of the verse in Nehemiah 8:10b: 'for the joy of the Lord is my strength'.

We'd love to see your take on this challenge

so please leave us a comment when you are finished your piece,

so that we and others may see your work.

To get you inspired the Design Team have come up with some beautiful pieces.

Please take a look at Salt

This what I did, which started me off making the other stamped cards using the lovely English Paper Company Christmas angels papers that you saw yesterday. The circular stamp and wording are from Rubbadubbadoo and the tiny angel and dove stamps are part of a Hero Arts set.


  1. This is lovely Hazel, I do love the calm blues of that paper and the stamping looks as if it was just made to be there - perfect!

  2. What a beautiful card Hazel. I love the way you have layered the stamps

  3. Beautiful card Hazel as are your Angel cards

  4. Beautiful card Hazel, love the white on the coloured background.


  5. What a beautiful ethereal piece. THe white is very effective, you've inspired me!

  6. Hazel, this is inspiring!

  7. Hazel - I LOVE this. The colours and the stamping are marvellous. Isn't He great!!

  8. I really enjoyed this theme.
    And I absolutely love your circular stamp.
