CPS 101 - Encouraging Verses

I'm fighting either a head cold and a headache tonight, or maybe it's just a sinus attack. It's been a long week and a somewhat emotional day, and I just couldn't face the two sympathy cards I found out I need to make over the weekend. In an effort to concentrate on something a little more uplifting, I decided to use CPS Sketch 101 and some Encouraging Verses to make this card for one of the gals that helps with the Childrens' Ministry at church. I was one of the lucky winners of this digi stamp set on Julie Buhler's blog. Julie designed these stamps and you can buy them here. It's so easy just to open a file and print them off. I colored in the tree with my Prismacolor pencils blended with OMS, and the paper is Basic Grey Mellow.

I even finished off the inside where I'll write a note letting this person know how much I appreciate them. It's reassuring to know that in today's hectic, stressful, frantically-paced world there are other people out there helping me try to "firmly plant" my children in goodness and Godly values.

I love how you even decorated the inside of the card. I'm so lazy, I usually just leave it
