Happy Friday all!!! I hope everyone has had a great weekend and is ready for the weekend!! I know I sure am.  

Life has been crazy here in Virginia with the changes in schedule I have been going through but it sure helps to have had this beautiful weather that no matter how tired I am the sunny weather gives me a sunny disposition and more energy!! I thank God for the change in seasons and the miracles he has bestowed upon us with the new life in Spring!! Spring is my favoritie season as you see the flowers bud and open, plants sprout, leaves begin pop, and the changing colors!!

Today I am popping in to share a card that to me evokes some of the bright colors of Spring.

For my creation, I used the stamp sets Finch Collage and Hymn Collage recently released  at Our Daily Bread Designs. 

The image panel is embossed with Stampin Up Basket Weave since it reminds me of Aida Cloth and gives it a more vintage flair. The background is embossed with Darice Damask. Some of my image is cut out and popped up on dimensionals.

When I see this sentiment, I think of the verse "Look at the birds of the air.... your heavenly Father feeds them, aren't you much more valuable then they."  Matthew 6 :26.  

A great reminder to not worry but trust in God's provision.  A reminder I need often!!!!

Beautiful card Chris. Spring is my favorite season too, for all the same reasons. It hasn't come to Maine yet, but it will soon, and I'm ready!

Your card is beautiful, and I love reading your posts - I also need to be reminded to trust in God's provisions, and today you helped me with that Chris. There are no limits to His blessings.

The card is outstanding.
We had a bird caught in the s bend of the stovepipe. It bothered me no end. The 2nd day I opened the doors on the fireplace, put in a dish of food and water.That was after quoting that scripture and telling God I did not want to cry one more minute over a trapped bird. Within 5 minutes out she flew.
Thank you so very for sharing this wonderful artwork with us this week. We love seeing it.
Blessings, Carole Robb Bisson
