Another Beautiful Psalm

I can't get over how beautifully Julee can make a simple Bible verse stamp look. I mean seriously! :) This is one of my absolute favorite verses (I know, I say that all the time) and I am thrilled at how gorgeous it looks on a card! You can find this stamp at the Verve site under the Plain Janes section. It is called "Psalm 51:10". Anyway, I used another one of the Verve Release Sketches and AGAIN pulled out some more Cosmo Cricket paper. This specific paper is from the "Hey Sugar" collection and it is so fun and funky! It has such an interesting color combination. Who would ever think to combine Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip, and More Mustard with Baja Breeze? Not me! Once I had it glued together though, I decided to embellish it by paper piercing along the striped strip and gluing on some buttons and flowers.

Well, that's it for the card. I have had one tiring day. If I learned anything this week, it is that girls are mean. Period. Now, of course I knew it before this week, but what I didn't realize was how mean even 2nd grade girls can be! I have had more girl bullying in my classroom this week than I could ever have imagined! Today I even had some girls pick a fight with a 4th grade boy! Seriously! What they were thinking, I don't know. I just know that they are mean and I am tired of it. Literally. It makes me want to rethink having children...well...kind of. :) Enjoy your evening!

This is an absolutely gorgeous card! I am definitely going to have to try those colors together one of these days...

2nd grade girls can be bad! I also teach second grade and two years ago I had a group of girls that probably should never meet your girls! They definitely worked me during the year! ha!
