You Are Not Alone

Back in the late summer, a relative of mine received devastating health news.  My heart goes out to her, and wanted her to know she's often in my thoughts and prayers.  This was the card I made for her:


I pulled out Stampin' Up!'s Organic Grace for the fern, and a sentiment by Anna Griffin.  It felt very appropriate, because I wanted my relative to know that she was not going through this difficult time all by herself.

The chicken wire die is fairly new to me.  Once I became a fan of My Favorite Things / Dienamics dies, I ordered all kinds of stuff from them!


Hope you've got fun plans going on for the weekend.  I'll be in the attic studio for part of mine.  Been taking down Christmas decorations, too, box by box.  One a day.  That way, it doesn't feel so overwhelming.

Thanks for dropping by!
