Light

The current challenge at Impression Obsession is You are my Sunshine.  I didn't have this card in mind, but as I went through my stamps I saw this one from Follow Your Heart, CL407 & I don't think I've ever used it. The design popped into my head & so I went with it.  I punched a circle in the watercolor paper & drew the rays with 2 watercolor crayons (yes, they're still on my table!) blending with a water brush.  When it dried I added the yellow Stickles & attached the panel to the card front with the verse stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.  This is just the beginning of Matthew 5:16 which says "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."  Always good to do a little self evaluation--actions do speak louder than words.
First day of work tomorrow.  Hopefully I can remember what to do--LOL!  Sure glad I'm part time. Thanks so much for stopping by.
