Great job on both these cards. I really like the sweet bird image with the red berries. I Love he fun detail of curling the corner of the card like you did on card 2.

Oh Chris,

These are both fabulous cards! I really love the bird on the branch! I always love birds.

I LOVE the way you used the stamp of His Names! It is wonderful with red as an accent. It reminds me of His blood that was shed for each of us. The blood that cleanses our sins, and thus us, white as snow. Thank you for sharing this card. It gave me a lot to think about.

He IS Able,
Traci S.

Both cards are fantastic. Love the bird image. I'm partial to the "The Rock" as Jesus is our rock, it's nice to know that He's alway there in good times and in bad time.
