Kitchen Sink Word of the Week - Hallelujah

I was busy planning a card for the Kitchen Sink Word of the Week Challenge (the word is hallelujah) when I discovered that our beloved Benji had been crowned this week's Queen for the Day and headed off to explore her fabulous gallery.

I had researched the flowers of Israel and had selected the yellow lupine (it is the first cousin to the Texas Bluebonnet I believe) to use on my Easter card, but when I was looking at the beautiful cards in Brenda's gallery, I fell in love with her Sunflowers by the Ocean and remembered from my research that the sunflower was also grown in Israel.

Congratulations, Brenda!! How fabulous it is to be under your reign this week!!
