None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Make a Wish ...


I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in. ~George Washington Carver


Greetings and Salutations my Crafty Peeps!

This month, Margy has a stunning image for us to use for her Progressive Freebie Challenge at DigiStamps4Joy Facebook Group

It’s an image of a King Protea, the national flower of South Africa.

Based on what I could find out about it on the WWW … it is a member of one of the oldest families of flowers on earth, dating 300 million years and, according to Greek legend, is named after the shape-shifting Proteus, son of Poseidon.

The plants can grow up to 6plus feet and the flowers can reach close to 12 inches across. Just imagine a field of these magnificent flowers!

So here is my card using this stunning image!
