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:

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Words 2 Craft By - I will honor Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all the year
