Design Teams

Sunday, May 5, 2013


Happy Sunday all!  I hope you are having a relaxing day with family and loved ones.  Time with them is so special.  This card is for a very special lady who is my Aunt's best friend.  I've gotten to know and love her too.  She recently had a stroke that left her speechless, immobilized and now pneumonia.  The prognosis is not looking too good.  She is in her 80's and trying as hard as she can to get better.  I wanted to do something very special for her to help bring a bit of sunshine her way.  I used die cuts from a new set I got at the craft fair last month.  It's a Creatables set by Marianne Designs and I LOVE it, especially those little corner pieces.  I made a lot of paper roses, added pearls and the sentiment.  The papers are ones I really like and use a lot.  They're from "The French Country Stack" by DCWV.  I did it as an easel card so she could have it open and be able to see it.

I hope that it makes her smile.  God Bless Lois, you are in my prayers!
