COF- Every Good and perfect Gift

It is the 7th of August, which means it's time for the Crafters of Faith (COF). Our theme this month is from Lynn- Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17

This month let's celebrate life's simple pleasures which bless our days with joy and beauty and meaning.

I was able to use another stamp that has never been inked up!!!  I combined the challenge with a DTGD (Dare to Get Dirty) challenge at Splitcoast Stampers, last year I was able to complete all of the challenges, this year- too busy...

 We planted Milkweed this year to attract Monarch butterflies. We have had caterpillars on the plants, but do not think any have gone to chrysalis yet- possibly a family of wrens???  Anyway, we dug up a plant that has some baby caterpillars on it, and moved it inside into our sun room in a big pot. We are like 10 year olds with a science project : )

Shelly - I love it. We planted lots of butterfly bushes but now we need the milkweed also.

Shelly, that is such a beautiful sentiment. I think I have that stamp somewhere in my stash, hehe...we really do like a lot of similar stamps. Your card is gorgeous.

Beautiful card, Shelly and I love the sentiment. Great monochromatic look! Your "science project" sounds like fun! Yesterday I was showing the twins some tree leaves. It was windy and Valerie was fascinated by how the branch moved in and out of her reach. Arthur just grabbed the leaf and pulled. LOL! Science experiments in the making. Have a wonderful week!
