Choosing JOY!!

You know "Choosing joy" had been my signature for several years now. It's because I believe that although you cannot always choose the circumstances you find yourself in, you can definitely choose how you deal with it. The main image in this card is also a digital image from (digitalimagetoo.com) Mo's Digital Pencil. LinkThe moment I saw this image, I knew I had to have it! It's called Soaking Up the Joy. She looking up and it's making her smile. I also thought of this image when I heard Whitney Houston's new single "I look to You". Our outlook can make the difference between success and failure in your life. Remember your attitude is contagious. If you are down, you'll bring others around you down. If you are joyful, one smile, one word of encouragement, might be all it takes to totally change the direction of someone's day, or their life for that matter. The last part of Nehemiah 8:10 says, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.

This card (5 1/2" x 5") was made for my daughter's birthday. She is 20 this week and she likes purple too.

Have a blessed day!!

Jacki!! Why did tell me about Mo?!?! I am now hooked. My basket is too full! She has such adorable designs!! I have to split my order between this month and next month (maybe three months, I'm not finished looking yet - I just took a break to write to you). :o)

sooooo sorry, Trena. I love them too. I was just thinking about getting some more images. I forced myself to stop at 4 the first time.
