Enjoy the Tulips

Today I made a card in record time…amazing for me!  It's simple, and it's for today's Splitcoast Color Challenge.  I passed on "dessert," which was to repeat an image or something else.  

I also made this card for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge, "Words to Inspire."  Both the lovely tulips and the word "enjoy" bring to mind resting and simplicity.  This coming year, it's my desire to enjoy all the many wonderful things I am blessed to have and to simplify by weeding out some of the stamps and supplies that I've collected over the last ten years.  It should be fun, and I hope to keep this in mind throughout the year.  And I also hope to find "good homes" for some of the items I decide to part with.  Any ideas?

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a wonderful week and find ways to rest and simplify in the coming year.  In the meantime, I hope you will enjoy this Advent time as we celebrate the birth of the Savior, Jesus!

For His glory,
