"May God be with you" Card with A Happy Hello SOTM

I grew up in a church where we sang so many different old hymns. Those timeless songs left an indelible mark on my life. They play inside my head at different times throughout the day.  I wonder if everyone else learned countless truths from the repetition and repertoire. One we often sang at the end of a service was "God Be With You." Of course God is with us, but it's so important to focus on that fact - that although He's unseen, He's still there. Being aware of His presence helps me through many difficult times. I especially liked the part that says "'neath His wings securely hide you," whether it's from danger or the stresses of life. But as an adult I've also come to realize there are so many dear friends that I've lost through the years or will never cross paths with again. This sentiment in the chorus ends with ..."till we meet again." I'm looking forward to seeing them in heaven some day.

That's why I chose this sentiment as a favorite saying to go with the challenge at Crafting When We Can.

This card uses the CTMH Hopscotch paper and the February Stamp of the Month for the flower. I'm posting some of the other cards made with that paper and stamp set below.

 Thank you for visiting and May God be with you and bless you!

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

More Cards using the February Stamp of the Month (A Happy Hello):

The last two are my CASED versions of the cards shown in the idea book for this stamp set. I cut the blue scalloped circle using Cricut Artfully Sent and the butterflies using Cricut Art Philosophy.

I cut this last one at 6.5" instead of 5.5," which better fit the added stamped circle flowers. It was cut using Cricut Artfully Sent. Links to the supplies are give below.
