Salt Challenge - Sheep

Obviously I am running very late today . . . so sorry! Today's Salt challenge was given by Gina, please se her write up on the Salt blog.

As I thought about the topic of sheep in the Bible, so many thoughts came to mind . . . Psalm 23, reference to Jesus as the Good Shepherd, the parable of the lost sheep and others. But the verse I kept coming back to was John 10:27, "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me." I love the "I know them" section! What a comfort and joy to know that our Heavenly Father knows His children! He knows what we need, when we need it, how we are feeling, what we are thinking, etc.

This phrase is followed however by, "and they follow me." Sheep are only safe when they are following their shepherd. When they stray away from their leader and wander off to "greener pastures" there is bound to be trouble! I'm so thankful for the guidance and protection of our Good Shepherd!

My card today uses the sheep stamps from Very Punny Valentine (Papertrey Ink). I used some natural cotton batting and cut out the sheep using the scalloped oval Nestabilities. The burlap was from an old rice bag I'm recycling, the fabric (which is hard to see behind the burlap) is from an old quilting project and the button is from my vintage stash (I love how it's very worn and old looking!)

Thanks for visiting today - please be sure to check out the Salt blog to see the rest of the DT's projects!
