Viva La Verve February Sketch 2

In my younger gardening days I would start planning what flowers, trees, and vegetables I would grow as early as January. I would begin growing flats of annual and perennial flowers under ultraviolet lights. Stores and garden centers would usually start selling seed packets in January.

Perhaps that will explain why I chose these Graphic45 papers with flowers and seed packets to go with this scripture stamp from Verve. Most of us make plans of some type. Sometimes life's details upset our best plans, but our loving God can direct our steps along the path that is best for us. When I had an accident that tore three tendons and injured my back, my consuming hobby changed from gardening to papercrafting. May God direct your steps along life's way!

 The background was embossed with a CTMH Scallops embossing folder. Here's the sketch I used from the Viva la Verve challenge:
