I unfortunately had to do a quick "hang in there" card for a very dear friend up at our church. She is the Church Volunteer Organizer - no matter what event is going on - there she is. She volunteers 5 days a week - and never misses a day. We invite her and her husband to all our parties - they are both so much fun. Her family originally came from Scotland, and so we have a unique tie between our heritage and the Church.
She was at a bereavement at the church this week, and let David and me know that she has to go in for surgery on the 19th of February. Just so unexpected, as she had recently had a scan of the area nearby and nothing had shown up.
It really hit home to me that we are not invincible. I believe with all my heart that she'll be OK - she has such strong faith.
So here is the card that I sent her: the inside reads - Hang in there!
I love this new set (482) from Sparkle N Sprinkle. If you haven't seen my recent posts then scroll on down! Apart from the cute froggy images, there are many fun sayings too!
So for this card, I colored the image with watercolor pencils and blended with Gamsol. I fussy cut and then layered it on a trellis, made from gold card stock, cut out from the Spellbinders Lattice die. I layered it on to black cardstock before wrapping gold ribbon through the tag, also stamped from the same set, embossed with Detail Black and cut and embossed with Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio two.
Let's hope that it works, and Peggy is back to her normal, bubbly self very soon.
Till next time,
