Find Your Happy Place...

A blessed Sunday to you, my friends! Thanks for stopping in today for a peek at my card for this week's challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ. We are being sponsored this week by the creator of the wonderfully whimsical image I used for my card, Michelle Perkett!


I discovered Michelle's art while blog surfing one day and fell instantly in love! She has a fun challenge blog and a Paper Craft Planet group. Check them out! One of our challenge participants will win a $15 Gift Certificate to spend in Michelle's Etsy store. Will it be you???

Our challenge hostess this week is the sweet Candace Mitchell. Candace chose the scripture Isaiah 40:8 "The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever." The challenge is to make a card/project featuring FLOWERS. 

My card features Mary Mary by Michelle Perkett. Isn't she adorable? And I love the verse, "Find your happy place to plant and bloom." One of my happy places is definitely my craft room! 

I followed this week's sketch at Crazy 4 Challenges. The DP is from the new Thrift Shop collection by October Afternoon (love love love!), finished off with a Prima rose.

I hope you'll join us this week at Stampin' Sisters in Christ. I believe you will be blessed by your visit with us. If nothing else, please stop by the blog to see what the rest of the Design Sisters have created using flowers. You'll fall in love! 

We're also hosting a card drive for a very special cause. Please take a moment to read the post and send in a card if you can. It will mean so much. 

Have a HAPPY day!
