Ever have one of those weeks when things go horribly wrong? I had one of those weeks, and what got me through it was the love of a friend who was by my side the whole way. Her comfort meant the world to me. And, I thank God for her. Of all the blessings in my life, the most important are my family and close friends. As a thank you, I made this card for her. I used the April Stamp of the month called "Flower Pot" from CTMH and the paper is "That's Amore". The sentiment that came with this set says "Flowers Whisper What Words Cannot Say". It couldn't be more perfect. To give dimension to my card, I stamped the image first. Then on a seperate piece of paper, I stamped the flowers and flower box. I colored both images and cut the second one out. I then propped them up on pop dots. I gave a little twist to the flowers, so that you could see the flowers underneath. I used brads for the nails in the shutters. And, if you are wondering if my week got better. It did. But, I am drained. I got some rest this afternoon and plan to go to crop night at my favorite scrapbook store, Jazzy Crafts. Have a blessed weekend. And, always remember, God is good. He will always provide what you need. And, when you wonder where he is, look around. He may be in that person next to you. God uses those around us to show us his love. He will never leave us nor forsake us, no matter what. Wow. I hadn't planned on making this a biblical lesson, I just needed to share his goodness.
