CASology Challenge #4 - Bird

Hi folks!  Today's card is for the CASology Challenge using the cue word 'BIRD'.  This is quite an easy one as there are so many stamps with birds on them nowadays, although the girls say we are not limited to a bird, it can be anything related such as flying, singing, anything that comes easily to mind.  I'm not sure if this card could really be described as Clean and Simple because it has a background paper on it, but I think it is uncluttered.  The digi stamp is from Pink Petticoat and you can just see the little bird on the branch.

I coloured this with my Promarkers and added a few drops of Liquid Pearls in the centre of the flowers for a bit of dimension.

Thought for the Week

So what does God's Word say about birds?  There are numerous verses referring to birds in the Bible but one of my favourite verses is found in Matthew 10:29-31 where the Lord Jesus is reminding His people that God loves even the very tiniest and most insignificant of birds, the sparrow, and nothing happens to them without the Heavenly Father knowing all about it.  But God loves His children so much more than the sparrow because He sent His Son to die for our sins and to forgive us.  A great comfort to me is knowing that no matter what happens to me, God knows every tiny little detail, right down to the very number of hairs on my head! And not only does He know all about it, but He cares what happens to me, and to you too, if you are His child.  So if you are feeling sad or lonely today and think that no one cares about you, remember, if you're a Christian, your Heavenly Father cares deeply about you.  If you have not yet asked the Lord Jesus Christ to be your Saviour, you can do it right now, just where you sit.  Simply ask Him to come into your heart and cleanse away your sin and ask Him to help you live for Him day by day.

God bless!
