The 23rd Psalm

The 23rd Psalm, since I was a small child has been a source of comfort to me. I see it as a promise by God to always be there! The Stampin' Sisters in Christ asked us to use the colors blue(still waters) and green (green pastures) for our creation this week.
When I first bought this set by Stampin'Up called Simple Pleasures, this bench reminded me of peace and tranquility. I love being outside, hearing the birds, looking at the greenery and the blue sky. So when I read this challenge I thought immediately of this stamp. I colored it using Copics, Prismas and SU markers.
Please stop by and check out this lovely blog, the ladies there are so nice and they create some beautiful things. Til later my friends.

card details:
base- GinaK designs Fresh Asparagus, Martha Stewart and Bazzill

Patti this is gorgeous, love this card, well love all your cards, but this one does speak to me. It was funny as you described Psalm 23 and the image, it was like you were describing me, I feel the exact same as you :)

I also love this image, although I don't have it, I have a bench and hat that I put together to look like this.
When my first puppy was little, in the early morning we would go out on the side of the house and sit on the bench. It was so much fun because he sat in my lap and watched the cars and butterflies. I tried it with all 3 of them and it not as tranquil.

You've colored the bench beautifully, Patti, and your sponging is so soft!! I love the little surprise of the birdhouse on the inside!!
