Stampin' Sisters in Christ . . . smile


(For the WAW/SSIC Valentine Hop, scroll down a few posts)

Happy Sunday stampers! It is time for another challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ, where all of our challenges are based on scripture. This week's hostess is the ever faithful Miesje, who selected this verse from Job 8:21 "Once more will he fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with rejoicing." Her challenge is to make a card that will cause you to smile, create a happy card, happy news, rejoicing in life.

Our sponsor this week is Our Daily Bread Designs and one randomly selected participant will receive a $15 gift certificate to spend in their store.

I will be very interested in reading Miesje's thoughts on her selected verse. I do know that each of us in the group has had trouble and have walked through some valleys either in the past year or a continuing valley that doesn't seem to want to end.

I also know that clinging to the Lord through it all helps provide strength and courage to continue on. The bible doesn't promise that everything lost will be restored in this life, but that we do have our ultimate hope in Jesus Christ.

Silly images can make me smile or make me happy and I hope my card makes you smile. I actually to have an intended recipient for this card, although I realize it isn't every day you can use a card with a knitting chicken sitting on top of a turtle. Thanks for looking, have a great week!

Stamps: chicken from a 12 days of Christmas set, Papertrey Ink (sentiment)
Ink: Memento black
Paper: Just a variety of scraps from a box in my stamp area
Other: copic markers, SU markers, spellbinders dies, PTI ribbon

Oh yes Peggysue - your card made me smile! Love it. Such an adorable image. Yes, it had been a tough year for me and for many of us. So glad to always have the prayers and support of each other through it all. Have a wonderful week!
