Well-Watered Garden

The Lord will guide you always. He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Isaiah 58:11

We had a very hot spell here in Indiana this summer, and I don't do high humidity heat well. Allergies, flopped hair, and sweat (yuck!). But on the flip-side is cool watermelon, Redkin Super Strength Finishing Spray (24 hour humidity resistance), and Claritan. This past week as I was preparing for our summer scripture challenge, this verse seemed perfect. Let the Lord guide your steps this week with me and you will be like a well-watered garden!

I enjoyed making this 6x6 card to add to my scripture collection. The bird houses is a very old stamp from Stampin' Up (1997!), colored with copics to match my Cosmo Cricket paper. Once my bird houses were colored, I overstamped the entire image with Pretty Pattern Backgrounder by Cornish Heritage Farms. I LOVE all my backgrounder stamps, use them loads! The verse was computer generated, and cut with the largest Nesty from Spellbinders Labels Four. The embellishment was inspired by Mish Mash back in March when we were getting ready for Spring! I have learned to never sit idle while watching TV - busy hands are happy hands when making cute little embellishments for half the cost! Have a happy day!
