You're in My Thoughts and Prayers

I'm in the midst of a major reorg of my stamping room and my supplies are all over the place... My sweet DH put together an entire wall of cubes which I am very excited about! I am trying to take my time to go through and organize things in their new home rather than just throw everything in a basket, then on a shelf. Unfortunately, that takes away from my stamping time! I didn't get a chance to stamp at all this weekend, so I missed a couple of challenges... :(

In the meantime, I do have a couple of cards from the latest Verve release to show you. These are from the wonderful new set, Meditations.

This was the very first card that I made with the new Verve sets. I was so excited when I first got the stamps, yet I was so nervous to get started. After a few panic attacks, I decided to dive in and play!

Not only does the set include the beautiful Psalm shown in the card above, but it also has these beautiful flowers in 2 sizes with 2 variations in each size. I chose to make this card monochromatic, highlighting the "other" sentiment in the set, You're in My Thoughts and Prayers. This is a special message going out to my SIL and BIL in MN.
