The animals went into 2 by 2

This week it was my turn to set the challenge for the SALT blog, so I chose what I thought would be the loose theme of 'water'. Please take a look at the lovely contributions created by the rest of the design team, and join in!



I made a hanging ATC, anything bigger, and I wouldn't have coped with cutting out the animals! This is obviously based on the story of Noah's Ark, and a lovely reminder of God's promises to His people.


I used cut out vellum, punch for the 'dove', Whispers (christmas) stamps for the wording, and recylcled some magazine off cuts for the rainbow and water. And googled an imgage of the ark.



Hopefully you can see the 3d effect in this picture?

Esther I love your choice of theme, and your little hanging ATC is Wonderful! I'm always thankful of the rainbows you can't help but look at them and not recognise God's promise & love!

That is such a good interpretation of the Salt challenge, Esther - it's so sweet and adorable.

Ester, this is wonderful! I love the 3-D effect and how you've surrounded the Noah's ark with the dove, rainbow, and water.

PS - Haven't been to your blog in awhile...your other cards are simply beautiful!
