Oh, Mercy! An Inspired Colour Throwdown!

Just laugh at me, people!  In this title are the 3 challenges I used for my card.  I started my card Friday by colouring the lamb, and didn't get the full card done until this morning.  It's been one LONG weekend.  CBC Radio came and interviewed my daughter for Rock the River Calgary Friday afternoon.  Just after they left, The Billy Graham Association came to film and interview her.  The filming is still happening as I write, because they are at our church getting shots of her at church in worship.  She is one of 3 kids that are the Rock the River Calgary poster kids.  She is very bright and very well spoken, so I've been told by all the adults involved that it has been a joy to work with her.  I blame our youth pastor for her notoriety.  She's the one he's referred agencies to when they asked for a youth perspective of the event.  It's all your fault, Robin!!!  She's loved the experience.  Both my older girls received training to be counsellors for the alter calls at Rock the River.

Then, Saturday morning, all the kids we were taking piled into my house so we could take them to the event.  We bought 12 tickets and offered up transportation so these kids could come to Rock the River and it not be a burden of any sort to the families for them to come with us.  We had 12 tickets, and there were none left over!  My 2nd DD's best friend accepted Christ as her Saviour yesterday.  I weep with joy as I write this because we have been praying for her for almost a year and we've watched God change her heart over the school year, preparing her for yesterday.  Now, we walk with her and help her grow because her family isn't supportive of her decision - yet.

The puppies had to go to the vet yesterday because they have explosive diarrhea and Bashful's eye is infected.  They are on antibiotics and we have changed their formula.  A friend came over to help me with them while the rest of my family was at Rock the River.

And here is my triple challenge creation;

I used Mercy's Tuesday sketch for this week (MTSC87) as well as the Colour Throwdown combo, AND when I saw this bedding from Pink Taffy Designs for the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoaststampers, I knew it was perfect with my lambie image.

I had some old Melissa Francis paper which has the first line from several nursery rhymes on the paper and I thought, 'how perfect!' for this nursery set.  I coloured the Dreaming of You image with copics and paper toled the image.  I do find that the Chicken Girl Design images lend themselves very well to paper tole with gorgeous results.  Here's the close up;

The rest of my product links are in my recipe, listed below.  Have a marvelous Sunday!!!

I was so excited when I read your post this afternoon! My oldest daughter went to Rock the River Calgary. So neat when a friend comes to know Jesus! We have almost the same situation with my oldest and her best friend. Her friend became a Christian about a year ago. Her family doesn't support her in the decision. She's had a pretty rough time of it. Anyway, thanks for sharing!
And, nice card too. Almost didn't pay any attention to it once I read about Rock the River!!
