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.
