Good Afternoon, Crafters,
Today I brought out one of my favorite old Cricut cartridges (does this tell you how old my machine is?????). It's Live Simply, and the cutout is a funny, whimsical birdie sitting on a branch. I found some blue paper with clouds for a background and used a Crafter's Companion Happy Birthday die. A googldy eye on the bird makes it even more playful and fun. I am sorry that I never seem to get the colors right on my iPhone camera, even after editing. The patterned background paper is much bluer that the image shows. This makes it look like a cloudy day, but the paper is actually a more cheerful, brighter blue.
Here is the card:

as always, I pray for God's highest and best to you today and every day.
Many rich blessings,
9 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.
38 "Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. 39 Everyone who believes in him is declared right with God—something the law of Moses could never do. NLT
A Simple Prayer for Salvation:
O, God! I know that I am a sinner. I thank You that Jesus Christ, Your Holy Son, was born of a virgin, came and lived a sinless life here on earth, and died on the cross as a sinless sacrifice for my sin. He is no longer dead, but rose from the dead and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. I accept His atonement for every sin I have ever committed and receive Your salvation. I put all of my trust in Jesus Christ of Nazareth and receive Him as Lord of my life from this moment on. Thank You Father God for this grace given to me.
2 Corinthians 5:17 This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun. NLT
