Inside: It’s time to rest and take it easy.

This is for the owner of From the Heart Stamps. On Aug 11th we were notified by her team that Faith (owner) was in the hospital and to pray for her if we could. Aug 13th her dad updated us to let us know they found a brain tumor just bigger than a golf ball size and they were going to operate. She is now at home recovering from the surgery and starting treatments for cancer. This woman is amazing and even though I have never met her she has touched my life with her sweet spirit, kind heart and love for God. Her dad was so kind to give us an address we could send happy mail of encouragement to. So I went looking through her images that I own (because her store is temporarily on hold) and came across this one. She does not sell pre-colored digis but she had a special one time so I got the pre-colored one of this!! When I saw it I came up with the sentiment. I also used a sketch from their challenge blog – I {heart} sketches #69. I was having a hard time trying to find a ribbon to go across like what was in the sketch. So I pulled out my box of odds and ends ribbons and old old fibers (remember those!!). I found this perfect colored fiber trim that was just perfect…I love those happy finds!!

My hair dresser/friend had a stroke in March and is recovering. They think it was caused by some meds and migraine meds but not totally sure. She is doing amazingly well and was allowed to come back to work last month. To encourage her on days that she can’t do as much as she wants to I sent her this card. I reminded her that her body is healing on the inside and even though she looks healed on the outside her brain is still healing. I wrote this verse inside:
“And my God will meet all your needs
according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”
– Phillippians 4:19

Her husband told me she liked pink and Dr. Pepper so that is what I went with. Used old supplies and scraps I had in my scrap drawers!

So here is the 2nd card using the “Away in a Manager” paper pack from The Paper Studio. I used sketch #1 in the September Card Challenge as my inspiration…just flipped so the circle was on top of the card instead of on the bottom.

I have enough paper I think I will get about 12 of these cards made.

So in trying to figure out what I liked best I made this one too. I think I would rather have the angel facing to the right but I think for one card this works too!
