This week's challenge at Stampin Sisters in Christ is based on Isaiah 12:6 ; " Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion, for great is the Holy One of Israel among you . " The challenge is to make a card or project that shows or expresses JOY or joyfulness. A good one, don't you think ?!
I had several ideas but this one captured my heart and wouldn't let go ! The funny stamp is an old one in my stash from Art Impressions and reminds me a little of my grandmother, maybe just a little more dignified and her hair less wild. She was the epitome of joy in the midst of hardship, always quick to laugh, positive and a living testimony to Jesus Christ. She lived her full 93 years with polio and today, this is how I see her.. still a little more dignified ( !) ... jubilant and polio-free in her heavenly home.
I have paper pieced her dress and added pearls to her neckline . The sentiment is computer generated .
Have a JOY-filled day, everyone !
