Courage | Peace | Healing


Hello friends.  I have a card today for Pat's cousin, Julie.  I'm sending this after receiving heart breaking news that she lost her baby at 29 weeks on Sunday.  My heart is simply breaking for her.   I looked through several sentiment sets before deciding on this sentiment.  Words simply can't express sympathy well enough in a situation like this, but I think these send the appropriate message of love and support.  

This card is my entry for the PTI timer challenge and supply challenge.  I am a quick crafter so the only time crunch was trying to line up the stamps when inking the second color on the flower.  I tried twice and then decided to let it go.  My seven supplies were:  ink, card stock, corner rounder, dies, two stamp sets...okay so I only had 5 or 6 or 10 if you counted each ink.  I gave up!

Hugs to you my dear blogging friends.

what a lovely, lovely card for such a sad reason. Oh my, Lynn, I will keep your cousin in my prayers. That challenge of 7 was tricky but Nichole (in the forum) said for everyone to have fun and not worry about the "counting police." I see "7!" ox

What a gorgeous and touching card to touch a broken heart. Had a friend who's wife lost their child two weeks before she was due - on of the hardest funerals I have ever been to. Blessings to you for reaching out to comfort her. My prayers will be with her!
