Prayers for Linda


Hello everyone...hope you are having a great Saturday!!! I have been a little bummed today.... I got a call from my friend last night to tell me that another friend of ours was diagnosed Friday with cancer. She will have surgery on Monday. My heart goes out to her and her family.....hopefully the surgery will go well and she can regain her strength before she starts her chemo. Anyway...
I made this card to take to her while she is in the hospital. The Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast today was to find inspiration from Flutter ~ an awesome webstore with lots of cool stuff. When I saw this pillow, I knew just what paper and stamps I wanted to use so this card came together in 15 minutes...I think that's a record for me!!! The sentiment from The Clear Dollar Stamps Christian Sympathy set was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa onto vanilla shimmer cs, layered with Chocolate Chip and Mint Melody (yes...I have hoarded Mint Melody for 4 years...yikes!!), and attached to the Making Memories dp with dimensionals. Sheer ribbon, vanilla satin flowers, and mint colored pearls finish it off. Pretty simple but dramatic...hope she likes it!!
Thanks for visiting and enjoy your weekend!!

Joan, this is a lovely creation that, I'm sure, will share your heart with your friend. I've had several people in my close circle recently diagnosed with cancer and it feels a little weighty on my shoulders. I turn 40 soon, but I'm not 40 yet and my circle isn't up there in years yet either. I hope your friend feels your love for her!
