Stampin' Up! Lean on Me

I was playing around with last weekend's Unscripted sketch a little more and created a little scene, literally.  Light sponging with Baja Breeze ink and little tiny dots of Dazzling Details create a rainy backdrop reminiscent of gray, drizzly days.The clouds barely show in the photo, but I think you can just see the raindrops in this picture; they sparkle in real life.

The little girl is from our Lean on Me stamp set. The sentiment that goes with it (on the same stamp) reads "Go ahead and cry. I'll catch your tears." A sweet sentiment but I couldn't see myself using it so I switched it out for "Joy is not in things, it's in us."* My pastor spoke one day about the difference between happiness and joy. In short, happiness depends on circumstances while joy is independent of them. So despite the rain we can find joy. How about we splash about while there? Who knows whom we will encourage to play along with us?
