One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

ColourQ Challenge # 189

There is a little story behind this "Joy" card...last Saturday I was at a Mother's Day luncheon at my church...the two hosts of the event talked about 'serving with love' and when you serve with love you are filled with joy and you spread that joy to others.  They then each held up a jar of JOY liquid detergent and told us they were passing the "Joy" to a random lady in the room, and throughout the luncheon, that person could then pass it on to someone else!  And the other thing they mentioned about the word "JOY" is that it could be an acronym for Jesus Over You!  Do you love it?  The Joy certainly comes from the love of Our Lord, and He would definitely want us to pass that love or joy I made this card to give to the two hostesses!  They are two very special ladies!  The inspiration from this card came from Betsy Veldman HERE .  Now I really liked how she did her card, but when I tried it, it just didn't look quite right to me, so I just stamped the same joy flower all over the page...I did emboss the die though onto various parts of the card.

This is going to the ColourQ Challenge which you can access HERE .
