Fill your cup ~ Brenda

I am so excited to show you my card today. More excited about this one than any!!  LOL.  As I shared in another post, one day on my way to work, I was listening to our local Christian radio station and the host was talking about seeing something that gave her a pondering moment!  I was half listening and didn't here if it was a card or a sign or what.  The words were, "Fill your cup and nourish others with your overflow".  I dug in my purse, grabbed a business card and wrote it down right away, because it immediately made me think of putting it on a card. ( I should really send her my card!!)
So the other day I asked my friend Guylou if she could make me an image.  The thought made me think of someone sitting over her morning devotion drinking a cup of coffee.  Don't you know that she sent me the image the very next day and named it Brenda!!  You can not even imagine how excited I was.  I have very few programs I watch on TV, but House is one of my faves. I was sitting at the computer when it was coming on and I got this image in my email. Well, don't you know that I skipped out on House and ran up to my scrap room and began coloring! And creating! And this is what I came up with. I am so excited to share her with you. She will be in Guylou's store tomorrow.  You can find it here.  I hope to see you creating with her as well!!!
Do you see why I am so excited!!  I also what to throw out a great big Thank you to Guylou for making me skinny!!!

Oh my goodness this is too cute!! I will definately have to pick up my "Brenda" stamp! Look at her little red toenails ;)
I clicked to get the bigger image so I could admire your flawless faux stitching (awesome work!!) and look at the top of the paper.. it says "House"!!
And of course your coloring is spot on as usual!!
