Kind words can be short and easy to speak

Sunday September 22, 2013
 
Good day, any one notice it's getting colder, darker lately. I really have a love - hate relationship with this time of year. I need the sun to feel energized but love the coziness of the cooler weather. Time to break out the nice quilt, enjoy some hot chocolate and read a good book with my dog curled beside me. Not that I cant do this in the summer time but colder weather makes it more comfy.
I was thinking of hot chocolate when I made my card. I used color pencils and really like the look. Again I dug in my scrap container and found this die cut to fill that empty space under the sentiment.
Just wanted to share this card and know that I can make cards that don't belong in a DT theme. LOL.

Oh Billie, you've done it again....taken words with a powerful message and illustrated them so wonderfully through your artistic talent. A few kind words give us all such a warm feeling of worth and well-being akin, to the warm, cosy feeling of a mug of hot chocolate on a cold, dark evening. I have to tell you Billie, that I now look out for your cards with such anticipation because your messages of love and advice gently filter into my daily life. Thank you. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
