As with most March and April days here in the south, we get more RAIN and WIND than normal.  Here on the shores of Lake Murray, it sometimes feels like the wind is just going to blow us away!

But the Lord always sends the warm rays of sunshine to brighten our days and warm us. 

There are so many caring people in our lives that bring happiness to us.  I think it's a gift we should never take for granted.  

For today's card, I've used Artist Mo Manning's 'Splash' and added the sentiment from Simon Says Stamps for a special thank you card for a caring friend like that. 

To make this card, I sized the digital image to about 3" tall and printed her on Neenah 110# cardstock.  The Copic colors used are listed below for you reference. 

The decorative edging on the image and matting was done with the Gina Marie Designs Labels Six set.  The sentiment is from Loving Heart by Simon Says Stamps. As I was searching for a small umbrella brad to attach the sentiment to my card, I came across the larger metal umbrella in my stash.  I was thrilled that it fit the card perfectly ~ AND is one less thing going unused.
