In all that life has to offer, there is nothing like the Joy that can be found in Christ Jesus the Lord! Every time I read this passage, I cannot help but think of the times in my life that I've felt despair, only to have it turned into gladness by the Lord. May we who have know the joy of the Lord and the great Salvation through Christ Jesus the Lord never be silent.
For my card today I have used a wonderful word art from Word Art by Karen who is at Papercraft Memories. I've inked the edges with old paper distress ink from Tim Holtz and then layered it over some distressed papers by K & Company. Then I added some lace ribbon, a bow and some pretty buttons.
I would like to share this with Word Art Wednesday. They have wonderful encouragement there, so do pop over to see them!
