Happy Sunday Everyone!!  I hope you are all having a blessed weekend!  Today I have the opportunity of sharing the verse and challenge at Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge this week. This week's host is the uber talented and sweet Randi.

Randi has chosen the verse:  Proverbs 17:22 " A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. " (NIV). Randi is a walking testimony to this verse and inspires me with the Faith in God and optimistic spirit in all she goes through and experiences.  This is a very good verse for us all to be thankful for God has given us realizing it is all from Him and that in all situations, He is our Guide.  There is no greater joy than to know that God is there directing our lives.  He wants to Trust in Him even in the bad times and be joyful.  Are you joyful and depending on Him or are you defeated and not trusting.  Place all you cares on Him and be joyful.

Randi's challenge this week is to make a clean humorous card. Lets see some laughter.

For my creation, I decided to use the fun image from Whimsy stamps called Pear-tunia.  The image just makes you smile with her cheesy smile and her big butt.  I used the
Midnight Madness sketch for this week.  



The butt of my Pear-tunia is paper pieced with Cosmo Cricket Material Girl paper.  The rest for the dp is Basic Grey Lemonade.

pam124 said...

BUTT really Chris!!! LOL!! I caught some hassling from my last week's comment telling you to make an ugly card once in awhile. They'll never let me forget that one!! Well, I do have to say this isn't ugly, it's a HOOT is what it is!! At first I didn't realize the paper pieced part of the image was the "butt", but when I looked again, I said, "Is that her butt"? Still laughing . . . Okay, so you didn't make an ugly card as your image all all details are one gorgeous piece of work, but you did go to the comic side, so I guess that's something!! INCREDIBLE in every way this week Chris!

Thanks SO MUCH for playing the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week and I hope you can join us again next week!
