Thinking of You!

Good Morning!  Hope your day is going great!  If it isn't I'm praying that you feel God's presence.  After going to the gym this morning I came home and checked my emails and my facebook.  It was a childhood friends birthday yesterday so she had lots of posts...all wishing her a happy birthday but also letting her know that they were praying for her.  I realized that she had recently lost her husband...and that this was probably her first birthday without him.  She has been heavy on my heart all morning (even though I haven't seen her in thirty six years).  I love facebook for that reason...it reconnects people.

So today I decided to make a Thinking of You card and I LOVE the way it turned out!  I followed a sketch from the sweetest thing's - Sweet Sunday Sketch ChallengeTake a look at the sketch...you have a day left to submit your creation!

Here is the sketch...

...and here is my card for the challenge!

The colors I chose are Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Whisper White, Old Olive and Basic Black.  I used the Boho Blossoms punch (obviously one of my favorites), the Bird Builder punch, the Petite Petals punch, the flower from the Itty Bitty Acents punch pack and the 1/2" and 3/4" circle punches.  I used the Large Polka Dots embossing folder, the Circle Framelits and the Essentials paper piecing pack. The sentiment is from the Occasions for You stamp set...don't you love it!?!?  I added a little bling by using the 2013-2015 In Color Sequin Assortment.                                            
I don't usually share scripture, although I am a devout follower of Jesus, but today I want to share the verse that my friend very graciously added to her facebook this morning.  If you are sad, lonely, discouraged, lost....may you find comfort under His wings!

Psalm 91:1-4

"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, 'My refuge and my fortress, My God in whom I trust!' For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and a bulwark."                                                                                                                                                                                    


  1. :-) Your card is so pretty. I'm sure it will give your friend a lift. Wonderful Scripture to draw comfort from. Have a great weekend.
