Prayer Card

Hi Everyone,

A friend of mine has received some traumatic news in relation to the health of a loved one and I made this card to let her know that she is not alone.

The cross was hand cut so it’s a little wonky, but hey – nothings perfect is it? It’s been embossed with the Lattice Square Embossing Folder. The sentiment is from retired set that I fail to have the name of, but it fits perfectly in the Word Window!

This lovely Wisteria Wonder coloured paper from the  Berry Blossoms Designer Series Paper pack has been machine sewn onto the matching cardstock – gotta love Stampin’ Up for their co-ordination of colours across the whole range, it makes things so very easy!


The flower was made using the Blossom Petals Builder punch and some cardstock scraps in Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White. A few pearls added to the centre and quick misting of Shimmer Paint Mist and a lovely flower is born.

I’ve used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week, well almost!

Thanks for checking it out and I look forward to entertaining you some more next week.
Why so long you ask? Well, End of Financial Year for us bookkeepers means I’ll be busy this week doing Payroll EOY for 4 different clients! Yep – busy, busy, busy earning some dollars in order to spend some dollars! lol

Have a great week now, I know I will (sarcasm)
