Sending cards of encouragement is what we card makers do best. We love to make our cards, we love to participate in challenges (and win too!) but we really love to share our work with others and bring a smile to someone's face when they are down and out.
Today's card was made for a dear friend of mine who has been receiving chemo treatments and struggling a bit. It's been a battle for him over the last months and today he had to undergo surgery. He and his wife are probably two of the strongest Christians I know. I have no doubt that even through this valley - tonight they are together giving thanks for the surgery and the healing hands of our Lord and savior.
I colored the circle of fall leaves, berries and vegetables with my Copic markers, staying true to the fall foliage in greens, golds, yellows and reds. I used an identical size ruby red circular stitched matting and off set it to the left. I matted both pieces onto an orange and brown dotted paper and then onto an A2 standard Kraft card base. For the final step I added a brown organza ribbon and matching double bow to the center of the card front.
I'll be praying for his complete recovery from this surgery with no complications and giving thanks that we know our Master Healer is at work always.
Thank you for stopping by today. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
I’ll be entering this card in the following challenges:
