SSCC#29 Hallelujah !

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 !

Stamp: Art Impressions
Paper: Neenah, Basic Grey's Sugar Rush
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Vivid in Marigold
Accessories: Copics, Spellbinders Curvy Rectangle and Tag , pearls , computer generated sentiment, sponge

This brought me a smile! This woman does have the joy going on !!!! Reminds me of some churches I have visited . . . and how sweet it brings back memories of your grandmother . . .its a great legacy to have had a woman of faith to help us in our walk and now we need to carry on that work ourselves for the generations coming up. Thanks for participating in the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge this week!
