You knew it couldn't last! In yesterday's post, I gave up coloring with my Copics. OK... it was for only one day... lol... I just couldn't keep it up. And when I pulled out this beautiful stamp, my resolve melted. As many of you know, I love images and particularly children. They speak to my heart. Jesus also had a special place in his heart for children. They see the world with such wonderment. And this little lady is enjoying the beauty of God's creation. She is just a little sprout herself, ready to blossom into a beautiful young woman. Just as it should be...

Check out my creation over at Stampin' Sisters in Christ . I entered it in this weeks challenge (#76). The goal was to use green somewhere in your creation. Hop on over and play! Enjoy!

I use a hole punch in the middle after I punch or cut out the flowers.
