fullness of joy

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Whew this was such a full week-end and a fun one as well.

Saturday morning was our stamp club meeting. We had 5 girls there and each one brought a really beautiful sample to share with the group. We bring all the supplies to make the card that we are sampling. I will show the cards in a later post.

Saturday evening we went to a 30th birthday party for my hubby's nephew. It was a surprise -love those kind of parties. It was a great family time.

Today we started our day of with church. Our worship team was really on top of their music today. I just loved the worship songs they played.

This afternoon we went to a graduation party. Let me tell you it was really hot and humid here in Pittsburgh. But, the party was in a park with a lot of trees and a gentle breeze so we stayed cool. I thought we might only stay for a couple of hours but we were there until the end. Thank the Lord for shade trees in summer.

Well, onto my card for today. This card I made for the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps blog post. Click here to see the post.

My scripture verse is from the "joyful heart" set. It was just released by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps this month. I stamped i and then framed it with the spellbinders label 16. My patterned paper is from Bo Bunny-I really liked this bold and bright pattern.

I added some daffodil satin ribbon and a bow. I used a clear button in the center and put some riding hood red card stock underneath and a yellow pearl on top. Put some pearls in the corner and that completed this card.

card recipe:
stamps: joyful heart (sweet 'n sassy stamps)
paper: stampin-up riding hood red, daffodil delight, ww, bo-bunny dsp
ink: riding hood red
accessories: spellbinders lables 16, clear button, pearls, satin ribbon
