It's the Little Things


It's the little things that sometimes mean the most!  Whenever I've been feeling discouraged, I count my blessings.  It's amazing how many little things in my life are so important and I thank the Lord Jesus for them!
For my card today I've used this wonderful image by Faith at From the Heart Stamps and it's called Thimble Bouquet.  I've coloured it with my pencil crayons and added a touch of faux pearls to it.  I used some sweet paper from Momenta and a strip of punched cardstock with green ribbon.  Then I added a touch of faux stitching and a sweet crocheted flower.
Are you discouraged today?  Try counting your blessings.....you might find that you end up smiling!
Have a wonderful day!
