Faith as a mustard seed...

Sunday Blessings!

"For assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith
as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain,
'Move from here to there,' and it will move,
and nothing will be impossible for you."
~Matthew 17:20

Stamps: Doodle Pantry (Holy Land flowers 3 set)
Papers: SU! cs & dsp (mustard)
Ink: Copic markers
Other: kaisercraft gems, 
piercing tool for faux stitching

It makes my heart happy when I can use scripture on my cards.  Laurie has created a series of  lovely Holy Land flower sets with accompanying scriptures, such a this mustard flower with the mustard seed verse.  See all the sets HERE!

It's a bright sunny Sunday here in PA, though the temps are dropping as I type and snow storms are in the forecast for this coming week!  yay!   Can't believe we made it through January with hardly any snow...but with the end of this month, comes the end of that dreaded year end paperwork.  We are finally finished with it!  It has kept me away from my beloved computer & all of you far too long!  Looking forward to getting back into my crafting & blogging routine.

Wishing you all a wonderful day!
