Thinking of You

It is very, very hard to make a card for someone when they have heard bad news or if they are suffering a terrible loss or illness.  I decided today to let the colors of our paper and Artfully Sent do the work for me.  This is one of the pop-up cards.


This glacier blue paper is from Seaside, and I used the simplicity of kraft to bring peace to this card.  This is a 5" x 7" card, and I've used three keys to create this card.  The majority of the card is from the "t" key on page 15.   I found the butterflies on the "r" key which is page 14.  I wanted to finish off the front of the card, so I used the pocket card on the "r" key, too, sizing it to 4-3/4".  

One thing about making cards for someone is that it gives me time to think about and pray for that person.  Next time you are making a card for someone, think about that, and think about what a special gift you are giving the recipient.  It's not just paper glued together, but a mixture of love, thoughts, and prayers.  I have ALL of the handmade cards I have received in photo file boxes.  Maybe it sounds crazy, but it's like opening a box of blessings!

I've got one more to show you tomorrow, so if you have a chance to stop by, I'd love it!
Thanks for your visit today, and I hope you are finding your day most blessed!
