A JOYful Birthday

It's another one of those mixed-up weeks for me. Pretend today is Sunday. (*grin*)

The challenge this week at Stampin' Sisters in Christ is brought to us by my friend Peggysue Turner, who chose as her verse 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 that shows or expresses JOY or Joyfulness.

I encourage you to click on over to Stampin' Sisters in Christ to read what Peggysue has to say about this verse, and to see all the wonderful creations by my DT sisters.

I think this sweet image truly expresses JOY. I'm head over heels in love with a new digi stamp company I discovered, Michelle Perkett Studios. This is just the first of many cards you'll see from me using her whimsical and wonderful images.

The image was perfect with this wonderful DP from the Willow Bee Collection by Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker. No embellishment necessary! I just put a bit of glossy accents over the balloons to make them shine.

Gotta dash. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a JOYful day!

P.S. I owe so MANY of you a blog visit. Please bear with me. Life is presenting challenges at the moment. Mama said there'd be days like this...
