Monday Again

Well Monday is here again, it seems to come by to fast. I hope every one had a wonderful weekend. I surely did, the temps were 80 with blue skys, something we have not seen to often this summer, and we are having thunderstorms for the next 4 days.
This is for the stamp TV sketch challenge. I stamped this 3 times and paper pieced the flower and a few leaves, paper pieced the pot. used my nesties and the Fiskars boarder punch, these things are great, especially the storage saver ones. Colored with pencil and oms.

Stamps Gina K "friendship's Garden"
Paper Gina K white luxury and DCWV design paper.

Now I will leave you with a funny to start off your Monday.

THE ARMY OF THE LORD

A friend was in front of me coming out of church one day, and the preacher was standing at the door shaking hands with the people as they were leaving. He grabbed my friend by the hand and pulled him aside. The preacher said to him, "Brother, you need to join the Army of the Lord!"

My friend replied, "I'm already in the Army of the Lord, preacher."

The preacher looked puzzled and asked, "How come I don't see you in church except at Christmas and Easter?"

My friend whispered back, "I'm in the secret service.".
