As I get older, I find that I appreciate God's little gifts more and more. Birds, butterflies, bees, flowers...you know...all the little things that we are given each day. When I worked full time, it seemed that I never took the time to stop long enough to fully appreciate these things...just fleeting moments here and there. Now that I am home all day I try to take a little time each day and just sit down outside and look around. Those gifts are all around us and to my amazement, I love each and everyone of them! Yesterday a Jay came to my fountain and then on to the dry dog food left in a pan. They are such gorgeous creatures and I thought of this card; so I want to share with you this morning..
When I say to you to "Take Time and Breathe"...this is what I mean. Just take a moment or two, take a good cleansing breathe and look around you. God's gifts are right here just waiting for us to be amazed by them. These are the times I feel the smallest. Such a wonderful place we live, and so much beauty here in the hills of East Tennessee.
The designer at Heartfelt Creations, Linda Bontrager has captured the beauty of nature in her stamps! She has such a talent and shares that with us in the lovely images she creates. I have said it before, but working with this company makes me feel like I have come home. The stamps I used for my card today are:
HCPC 3385 Spring Birdie & Roses PreCut Set
HCPC 3353 Cardinal Family PreCut Set
HCD 706 Cardinal Family Die
Well ladies, that about does it for me today. So no matter where you are, no matter what you are doing, take a little time and "Breathe" (wink)
