It's Not MY Birthday

Hello all of you wonderful paper enthusiasts!

Father, remind us often that all good comes from You.
Don't let us get so caught up in the abilities You have
given us that we forget that without You, we are nothing.
We return to You the gifts You have given us. 
Use them for Your glory, Lord. 

Already another card to share with all of you using Art Impressions stamps. When I saw this stamp, it brought a big smile to my face because she looks so perky and jolly!  And the verse inside is perfect.

Beauty In Bloom

Hello all of you wonderful paper enthusiasts!

Jesus, help us stand against the enemy the way You did ...
confident, tall, unashamed. Your Word says that we need not
worry -- You will provide our defense in the moment we need it.
Help us to be sensitive to Your voice,
Lord, and let our words be Yours.

I know it's been awhile since I last posted anything, no rhythm or reason why. On the bright side, I'm still making cards and lots of them. I guess you could say I got into a card making frizzy and yes I will be posting them in the days to come. 
The card I'm bringing you today is a digital stamp from Power Poppy. The tulips are one of my favorite flowers. When they are in full bloom they are very beautiful. Oh and easy to color:-)
