Kind Words



This sketch was created by Verve Diva Andrea and it had me going "hmmm" for a little while as I tried to figure out how to work this sketch. I finally decided to flip it and things went a bit more smoothly from there :)

I absolutely love this quote by Mother Theresa.  Such a powerful reality to it and a great reminder to not just think nice things about people but to actually tell them so it can echo in there heart for days to come.

Got a few more bits of my Costco DP pack used up on this card - yeah!  Went with an oval instead of a circle, added a layered prima and some black, sheer ribbon and I was good to go.

Why not join me in making a conscious effort to bless someone today by sharing some kind words with them.  Not only will it bless them, but those of us who speak them :)





What's In It?
Stamps: (Verve) Kind Words
Paper: Costco DP, Lavender Lace
Ink: Black

Ok, so let me get this straight...I bless you with no skewed panels so in return my sketch must be tweaked 90°? And the oval? I'm beginning to think that you're getting a bit too sketch fickle, my dear. Of course, I'm just teasing you, I know I can do that! Well, adjusting the sketch or not, this is a real gem! That sentiment is absolutely beautiful and the colors are like a spring dream! Awesome work sunshine!!

how true...I loved Mother Teresa too...what a lot of power and love in a teensy tiny woman!! Love those bright pops of colour :) Well, we had snow, sun, and hail today!! LOL And it was cold out on duty today, although the sunshine was nice :) Apparently we are skipping over spring and heading right to summer, eventually!!
