So I found a Swap thread called Angel Swap. It’s not a normal swap because you swap names of someone that could use “happy mail/encouragement” in their mailbox (like an elderly friend/relative, or friend/relative going through rough time, someone sick, etc) . Then you get a name and make that person a card. At first I thought “well I should just be making the person a card instead of some stranger” but God prompted me to play this month. This month was a little different as we sent cards to the other “angels” instead of someone we nominated. And it was funny because I got Ro and she got me!! So this card was sent to Ro because she loves daisies! I saw this trim at Hobby Lobby and thought of her and Sketch #1 of the August Card Sketch Challenge and thought they would work well together.
I also made 2 cards for sketch #1 (August Card Sketch Challenge). This was the 2nd ideal that came to me when I saw the trim!!
