Through him who gives me strength

I have need of a few uplifting cards for people at church who have gone through some major surgeries.
Through my cardmaking group the challenge for April is to make a card with flowers, now that is right up my alley, I love to do flowers :)

The main chipboard flower I found in a package at Michaels, in those bins that use to be $1 and are now $1.50.  I colored the embossed areas with Zig markers.  The EK success flowers were white cardstock that I also colored with the Zig markers and added a Gemstone from Forever in time.

Martha Stewart leaf punch

Fiskar border punch

G.C.D. studios Melody Ross designer collections paper pack

K&co. Life's little occasions verse sticker (the butterfly is part of it)

Having a sunny but very breezy day today, suppose to get up to 70 later, that would be nice :)

I went to the doctor yesterday and he said I have a muscle in my back that is very tight and needs some good stretching that is part of the pain in my back, I have some muscle relaxer and pain meds to take and I will start physical therapy on Thursday, Hopefully this means I will soon be making cards again without being in pain :)

Hope you all are enjoying a wonderful week,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,
