My Cup Overflows

It amazes me just how truly blessed I am!  God never ceases to amaze me with His provisions and care.  I heard someone once say you must be mindful of your needs versus your wants.  God has always provided my needs.  (Not always on my timetable...  His time, not ours, right?)  I may want a nice new shiny Corvette.  Do I really NEED it though??  My dependable Toyota gets me around just fine, thank you very much!  (And I suspect my bank account is healthier due to that decision...)  

Today's card features a lovely scripture from the Book of Psalms...  Chapter 23, Verse 5 to be exact...

And it features a few May release items from Our Daily Bread Designs...

Let's break it down layer by layer....

4.25 x 11 inch white card stock base; scored and folded at 5.5 inches
4.25 x 5.5 inch red designer paper found in ODBD's Old Glory Paper Pad

~ Thanks a Bunch ~

Happy Saturday!  I hope you find yourself warm and dry this morning!  The weather is a bit soggy in my neck of the woods...  It almost feels like we are in a 40 days and 40 nights kinda of weather pattern...  lol...  And I'm sure when Noah was filling the ark, a couple of these creatures were happy to hop on.  I often wonder if they were a bit mischievous...  

Someday, when I get to heaven I may just find out the answer to that...  But today, I have a special card to share featuring North Coast CreationsThanks a Bunch stamp set and coordinating Monkey & Bananas Die set...  plus a few items from our sister company Our Daily Bread Designs'...
