Fullness of Joy

After spending the majority of the last three days at the hospital with my mom (she is 94 and had a heart attack Monday), I needed some down time.  Of course that means making a card or at least coloring.  I had this digital cup (Verve) and sentiment printed out so I took a few minutes to color it and turn it into a card.


As I was coloring it and adding Stickles to the snowflake, I thought about what it said.  The first phrase reminds me of Psalms 23:5 "...my cup overflows".    Oh, the goodness of God and His blessings.  My cup is not just full but overflowing.  And the second phrase makes me think of  Psalms 16:11 " You, Lord, will make known to me the path of life.  In Your presence there is fullness of joy.  In Your right hand there are pleasures for evermore. "  Those verses turn this sentiment into more than just a sweet wish, they are a prayer for the recipient.

The background is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  The cup and heart colored with Copics.
A simple, CAS card.  I didn't want to spend to much energy on it.  In stead just wanted to relax.
I used a loose interpretation of the MFT sketch:
Off to bed.  Will post this for tomorrow morning (when you will be reading it) before heading out to the hospital.  Today we make arrangements for mom to go to a rehab facility for awhile.
