B is for....Blessing! - Job 8:21

It is Sunday again and time for another challenge based on scripture at  Stampin' Sisters in Christ! I hope you are staying warm - lots of cold spots today - great weather to craft though!

This week it is my turn to be your hostess and the verse chose is one that I really wanted to share this week because it is uplifting - to read the devotion please stop by our home page to read it
"Once more will he fill your mouth with laughter, and your lips with rejoicing."

We have so much to thank God for and what better way then to fill our mouth with laughter and use our lips to rejoice in our good fortune! I cant think of a better way to show the world that the love our our Lord is in our hearts and that we are willing and happy to share that with everyone!

So my challenge to everyone is to make me smile! Create a happy card - happy news - rejoicing in life. And I don't know of many people who do not smile when they see a baby! I made this card for my grandson who will be born in about 6 weeks! They are decorating his room in cowboys so this rocking horse one is just perfect for him.

I used the sketch from Sketches by Carly this week, it seemed perfect for this card. I distressed the background a bit and decided to step out of what I normally do and decided to sew around the outline. I still have a sore sewing finger! I paper pieced the saddle and lightly colored in the rocking horse.

This week's sponsor is - Our Daily Bread Designs. I love this store - some of the best Christian stamps around! Be sure to stop by and look at their wonderful products.

Don't forget to stop by my SSIC design sisters (listed on the sidebar) to see what they have to share this week.

It is always great to see you, thanks for the comments!

You interpreted the sketch so well. This is a very eye catching card. Thank you also for sharing your thoughts on SSIC this week. I loved the quote by Mother Teresa. She made me smile and so, so many others also during her lifetime. Hope you have a fab week :D

This is so very sweet, and loved your thoughts that you shared this week about why you selected that verse. I head that statement so many times in the single parents/divorce recovery ministry. "They don't make me happy." How many families have been torn apart by that selfish thinking when happiness may be fleeting but our joy is found in the Lord and we cling to that. Wishing you a blessed week.
