Caring Card

Hello Friends~~
Lisa from SSCC#6 has given insight to being the person who you really want to be in God's eyes. Don't get caught up in the hype. The scripture quoted is: Psalm 19:14: Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in your sight Oh, Lord, my strength and my redeemer. The challenge for this week is to make a card letting someone know that you are thinking of them or praying for them. A"thinking of you" card is always sure to bring a smile to someones face. And a "praying for you" card is sure to bring comfort. Both are blessings as much to those who give as to those who receive!

Die cut Dreams challenge #16 is to use ribbons and trims!!

This card I made is for a friend that has a daughter that last week had major surgery to remove tumors not knowing if it was cancer or not. Everything went as best as it could and time will tell what the future holds. My friend is a professor at a university and when she received news of her daughters condition she had to take a leave of absence b/c emotions took over :-( I felt so very bad for her and told her they would be prayed for daily. I sure hope this "Thinking of You" card does bring a smile to her face and lighten as well as brighten her day!!

I used Certainly celery for the card base and layered with brown, melon mambo and white. Stamping the phrase: "Three Little Words" and tagging with "thinking of you." I Stamped butterfly swirls with Colorbox pink Ink before adhereing the layers. Added Twinkling H2O irridescent green to the pink and white butterflies for shimmer and rhinestones and pink stickles (on the babies) for bling!! Added ribbon, roses and a special guardian angel charm!!
Here is a close up of the melon mambo ribbon with roses twirled into it as well as a better view of the guardian angel charm and shimmery butterflies :-)
The finished inside is a continuance of the butterfly swirl stamp and the same color combo of papers layered for a personal message. Finishing with three little words inside of "God Loves You!!"
