I'm Back with Card # 90

I am finally returning to blogging.  The past few months have been difficult, terrible, mind boggling and down right depressing.  But I am finally out of my despair and getting back into my crafty mode.  This was one of those times where life got in the way and I felt as if everything was topsy-turvy with no right side up.  Thank goodness for my hubby and kids they kept me grounded and the Lord kept me steady through this ordeal.  I truly believe 1 Corinthians 10:13, New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) now more than ever. 

13 No testing has overtaken you that is not common to everyone. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tested beyond your strength, but with the testing he will also provide the way out so that you may be able to endure it.

The card I am sharing today I made for a very special little boy in Germany for his 1st birthday.  His Mama lived with us in 1999-2000 as an exchange student.  She is now married, a school teacher and a mom.  She is a wonderful girl and we are so blessed to know her and her family.   This little tractor was inspired by a similar card I found on Pinterest.  Very appropriate for a little boy living near his Grandpa's potato farm.
