We can get so busy that time flies before we realize...we have not taken a breath in too long! The little spring green gift box above has a great quote on it. The stamps are from Clear Artistic Stamps and when I got my new favorite set in their Serenity line, I had to make some fun things! Belinda sent me several of these boxes with my last order...isn't that sweet?? Here's another creation using this set, Whispers of Dreams:
I used Papertreyink's new cardstock Berry Sorbet and Perfect Match ink. (the color is similar to Cameo coral...hard to tell in the pic). Then I added a wide strip of the coordinating designer paper Pink Patterns. Doesn't it go so well with the CAS stamp? The little butterfly is from my Clear Artistic Stamp's Country Life set and the Martin Luthor quote is from PTI's stamp set Out on a Limb.
I decided the quote was perfect for this stamp and it helps us to remember to stop and smell the flowers of God's creation. Isn't it all Goodness and Grace? Here's a close up of the quote:
Nothing makes me happier than new green leaves on the trees in the spring. I get so sad when all the beautiful colors fall off and leave naked trees! But the hope of tomorrow's leaves always gets me through the winter, which can seem sooooo long sometimes. Are you in a stretch of winter in your life worse than the weather outside? Well, my friend, take time to thank Him for your blessings and you will begin to see how many of them surround you!! God is faithful to take time to care for you, so take time to talk to him! and to breathe! and Spring will come!
