Hello, Friends!!  I hope this post finds you all well!!  Our house has been very busy with Bible school for the last few weeks preparing all the crafts and actually working with the children doing the crafts.  Last week we had fun working with a variety of kids from our church and the community.  It was tiring but rewarding.  Yesterday, I began two online college courses to update my certification.  I am sure these courses will keep me on my toes and plenty busy.

Last week I had a friend from church ask me to create a birthday card for her mom who is turning 94.  It was fun to create this pop-up card.  I incorporated this card with the ODBDSLC275 
Pop it up or add dimension Shining the Light challenge (at ODBD).

Today's Verse:
When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.
Proverbs 11:2  

So many of us are prideful.  Pride is not only when we think the gifts and talents God has given us are our accomplishments but also in so many other areas of our lives.  Pride is thinking more highly of ourselves than we ought.  Is there someone you have not converse with because you think that you are better than they?  All we have is a gift of God.  What He has bestowed upon us, He can also take away.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

blessings,

Oh, Chris, what a beautiful card inside and out! I really love the color combination you've used, which is different. But it's fabulous! And I especially love the outside with the sweet little flower used to make your background DP and the repeat in the focal image with the "you" die and sentiment. And I always love the doily, beautiful border, and your signature bow!!! Swoon! Big hugs, sweet friend! xoxo

What an incredibly special card for a special birthday! I know she will love it! Lots of memories of VBS when I was a kid & noticed a sign in a neighbor's yard recently. Bet you had fun even though it was lot of work. Good luck with the courses, Chris--always good to have a challenge, right?!
