The Joy Of The Lord Is My Strength

VLV March Week 1 photo VLVMarWk1picA.jpg


Hard to believe we are in March already!  Yikes!!  Spring Break is just two short weeks away -- says a mom who needs to get her act together planning activities to do with her kids over the break!  I decided to avoid that thought for a while while I worked on this week's Verve sketch.

I went back to my Verve roots and used the very first set I purchased called Serenity.  That was the beginning of my love affair/addition to Verve Stamps.   Guess you could say it is our six year anniversary wink, wink :)

The sentiment and over stamped image are both from the set and after singing It Is Well all day yesterday, today I'll be singing the course that goes with this sentiment!  May have to keep the song theme going this week ;)  



What's In It?
Stamps: Serenity (Verve) 
Paper: Garden Florals (Recollections - Michael's), Mellow Moss, Blush Blossom 
Ink:  Black, Blush Blossom
