CCEE ~ World Lion Day!

Hello friends!!
It's that time again for the CCEE Stampers to create a card
with a chosen theme by the hostess, Frances!
Since tomorrow is World Lion Day,
our cards are to show a lion somewhere ♥

Lions are such magestic and interesting animals!
It's easy to see from their raw power and size that they are 
definitely "King of the Jungle." 

For me, my sweet boy and I love, love, LOVE listening to 
the christian radio station when we are out and about in the car.
One of his favorite groups is Big Daddy Weave!
Yes, that's the name, LOL!
They have a song called the Lion and the Lamb 
and we know it - and sing it - by heart!
I can hold a half way decent tune,
but between the two of us, we can belt it out when we're inspired!
The lyrics that I sing over and over, even when I'm in the shower!
I'm cooking or cleaning or singing without music :)

 Our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah
He's roaring with power and fighting our battles
And every knee will bow before You
Our God is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain
For the sin of the world, His blood breaks the chains
And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb ...

Isn't it beautiful!

When I saw the theme for this week's card,
I knew I wanted to use the Lion from the Caring Critters stamp set and the matching SugarCut die set from Sugar Pea Designs.
It's one of my favorites ♥ 
I've paired it with a sentiment from another stamp set:  Kindness Matters.
Oh ... this stamp set! 
It speaks to my heart!

I colored the lion with prismacolor markers and added a tiny bit of 
wink of stella to his main and tail.
There is a fun sketch/inspiration picture over at the Sugar Pea Designs blog
for the mix-it-up challenge #46 so I'll enter my card there.

To see the rest of the Lion Pride,
be sure to stop over at the CCEE blog to be inspired by different lion creations!

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
