Sometimes it is hard to have a cheerful heart. One of my four sisters, Sherry, is battling cancer right now. She seems to be doing MUCH better about it than I am. I HATE this dreadful disease that has sadly taken two of my husband's sisters. I have been sending Sherry a flow of cards to encourage her heart in the past few months. I want her to know that even though I'm several states away I'm going through this with her... sigh... sort of. No one can really "go through" a trial with you except Jesus because when His children are feeling broken and alone He is right there fulfilling His promise never to leave you or forsake you.
I have noticed my need for more "encouragement cards" is growing and my supply is dwindling so I have created a few new ones using one of my stamp sets, A Cheerful Heart, by Papertrey Ink.
It is hard to see but I have embossed the white cs using a Cuttlebug EF that is sort of a frame of snowflakes : ) - Side note: The light bulbs have been blowing out right and left in my photo studio so the lighting in my photographs of late has been terrible!! We special order a special kind of bulb so until they arrive I am suffering to get good pictures.
I liked the Cherry Cobbler red cs so much I tried for one in Pool Party. Obviously needing to get some re-inker on my stamp pad!! I'm only showing this one because it does show my embossing better : )
|Inside: You are in my Prayers|
I was loving this CAS design so I decided to make one more - this time using a sentiment from CTMH's "Card Chatter - Sympathy"
Each of these cards has a contrasting card base and an embossed face that I popped up using foam tape. These are so nice because additional postage is not required to send them : )
That is it for me today. I pray you have a cheerful heart in what you are facing right now. If you could use some encouragement I invite you to send me an e-mail I would love to stand beside you in prayer. My addy is Patti at neckStyles (dot) com : )
