~Favorite Flourishes and Stripes~

Favorite Flourishes Set

Tiny Flowers and Tags has become a new favorite of mine.

I love to stamp the little images in windows and small spaces.

My stripes are there...very subtle, but there. ;)

I am also linking this up to Word Art Wednesday#24.

There is a beautiful verse there for you to pick up.

I know BLOOM is one word, but it's one word that can lift one's spirits.

So many times, it was that ONE FRIEND whom God gave me on this journey who's words and actions told me to BLOOM.

I pray I be that encourager to those around me!


Be who God created you to be!

Don't be held back by weeds of deception and discouragement!

Will it be messy?


Is it scary?


But if you don't bloom, you'll wither and die.

BLOOMING sounds so much better, doesn't it?????  ;)

  2. I love the stamp set you chose, and encouraging word you picked :) We all need some great encouragement in our lives, and receiving a card with encouraging words from a friend is even better, I think :)

    Thank you for joining us in Flourishes Timeless Tuesday!

  3. Lovely design and post! Definitely better to bloom where we are planted than to dry up and wither away!
