Two Ladies in Need and Blog Candy on ODBD

While I was thinking about it, I wanted to post these cards.  They went out in the mail early this morning to two ladies that I am praying for and wanted them to know that I’m thinking about them.  I would like to encourage you to check out THIS post on Kelley Holland’s blog (Our Daily Bread Designs owner) concerning her friend, and our Sister in Christ, Sandy.  Sandy needs prayer to lift her up during a difficult time she has encountered in her life…please send a card if you can afford a moment.  As a visitor and a commenter, you will have the opportunity to win one of three lovely stamp sets that Kelley is giving away.   I made two of these cards, one of them went to Sandy that I mentioned above and the other went to Sally along with a birthday card.  You can read about Sally HERE.

Do these look mildly familiar?  There are!  These are the supplies I had on my desk since I was working with the "Circle Medallion made with a Corner Punch".  Since I needed these two cards lickety-split this was my best hope.  It is just like THIS card except I really needed to ditch the big bow because they were sent in regular envelopes and flagged for hand cancellation.  The sentiment on the front of the card is part of a scripture contained in the Hope set by Our Daily Bread Designs.  The inside contains part of the poem by Emily Dickinson: 

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all

Take good care!  Be good to yourself and your loved ones!

    Good evening, Becca. Your cards are so beautiful, as usual. It’s always sad when one has to make a card for situations such as both your friends but when they can see the love which has been put into each of their cards I’m sure it will uplift them. I do hope the Lord will be gracious unto them and lay His healing hands on them.ReplyCancel

    Thank you for sharing these stories and your good example. I love your cards, and you inspired me to do the same for Sandy. I’ve posted it on my blog, along with her story to help with prayer support because cancer touches so many lives. Extending a hand of friendship is an easy thing to do! Bless you!ReplyCancel

    I just discovered your blog and tutorial last night and have already spent a lot of time studying and trying your techniques and I am going to use this technique for my next card exchange. I am also curious which punches you used on the pink cards because it looks like one of the punches went into the center of the circle. Please share your secret :-) They are just gorgeous and I will lift up your friends in prayer.ReplyCancel
