Worry is a waste of imagination...

♥ this quote I read a few minutes ago on one of those church signs by the road:

"Worry is a complete waste of imagination."
(googled it and I think it can be credited to Gary Lockwood)

So true... the Bible tells us not to worry... but we do. Forgive us, Lord, for not obeying you and laying our burdens at your feet. But oh, how human we are and how quickly we forget.

I haven't been crafting much lately. I seem to be in more of a purge mode and for some reason, I can't seem to do both things simulaneously. However, yesterday I went to stamp club and we made some wonderful fabric flower pins (something I've started collecting supplies to make lots of). I ♥ them.

Hmmm, you may be thinking, well that's pretty but where's the stamping? We used the Stampin' Up Flower Folds die to cut the flowers (it works in the Big Shot). But never fear, we stamped too. Made these cards:


Happy ♥ Day! May you find time to spend with your loved ones, may you be free from worry and may you find some time do be creative!

You reminded me of these poignant verses in Matthew 6. :)http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=matthew%206:25-34&version=NIV

Your pin and cards are gorgeous! Love those sweet birds and the awesome foldable card with the great sentiments.
