Praying For You
I used this month's Sketch For You To Try to make a card for this month's Verve Diva Dare - Sending Some Sunshine and it also qualifies for this week's Crazy 4 Challenges colour challenge.
The Diva Dare is to make a card and send it to someone who could use some cheering up. I made this card for the Chairman of our church's Board who is battling melanoma. He is an amazing man, who brings sunshine to many other people and could now use some sunshine himself :)
Jumped at the excuse to use my PTI leaf dies again (you may get sick of them before Fall is over!!) and paired them with some SEI paper. I love fall colours and am very much looking forward to working with them over the next few months :) I embossed the circle with Distressed Stripes as it reminds me of wood grain and gleefully used the maple leaf die - it's a Canadian thing LOL!
My daughter had a MUCH better day yesterday and today after her very rough first day in High School. After school today she told me she could almost say she had a "fun" day. Nothing like going through emotional whip lash LOL! A huge thank you to all of you for your comments, encouragement and e-mails asking me how she was making out. Your care and concern touched me deeply (((hugs))). Have a great day and thanks for being wonderful friends and followers!
