Watering Can Bouquet


     So how is your week going?  Mine started with the wonderful blessing of a dear friend making it smoothly through his second open heart surgery in the last three months.  God is so good and like the card says, He is always with us.
     For todays card I have used some more of the wonderful watercolor stamps from Art Impressions to create a watering can bouquet.  Thought I would link this up for the Word Art Wednesday challenge.


     Hope the rest of your week is filled with blessings.
Tracy

Oh, praise God for bringing your dear friend through his second open-heart surgery. Wow, that had to be hard. But what joy and comfort to know (and sense) that God is always with us. I love this beautiful watering can and the lovely flowers you've stamped and watercolored. It's gorgeous, and I agree with Katie that its simplicity really is beautiful...and it shows off this beautiful sentiment of truth! Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo
