Waiting and Trusting!

My neighbor is going through chemo right now. Last night she had to be hospitalized because of an infection. I created this card to encourage her and to let her know that I'm praying for her. I used today's sketch from SCS.

I started by stamping the cross image from ODBD Flourished Christian Symbols in Barely Banana ink on white CS, then the Scripture verse was stamped in Memento Black. I used an old paper cutter that has a deckle blade to cut this into a rectangle. It's layered on a piece of So Saffron that was cut with the Nesties Romantic Rectangle die. The Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery pieces were embossed with a couple of flowers folders. A blue paper flower with a green rhinestone was added to complete the look. I think my neighbor will like this and I pray she in encouraged by it and my prayers.

I'm entering this in this week's ODBDSL157 at Our Daily Bread Designs.

Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time,


  1. This design and color choices is so soothing and thoughtful. I like the way you stamped the cross in a light ink then added the sentiment in black. Great idea!

  2. This is really pretty! I'm sure your neighbor will appreciate the encouragement!!
