Sending prayers to a friend :)

Hi!  I hope you all had a blessed weekend :)   One of the things I never seem to have on hand is a prayer card, yet they are the ones I spent the most time making!  I needed to send a friend a card this weekend and saw the Stamping Sisters in Christ Challenge which was just the inspiration I needed to get going :)  

The wonderful and  talented hostess this week is Lisa and gave us this scripture as inspiration:

Philippians 4:4-7 "Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

The Challenge: Make a card/project about prayer and/or peace. I pulled out my new Basic Grey Kioshi collection papers and it just flew ~ using my Verve stamp (Jeremiah 29:11), I created this and I send this to her so she will know how very much she's thought of and prayed for during this time of uncertainty and wonder and worry!  Truly a beautiful soul she is and shows such kindess and generosity to all others - it's a blessing to have her for a friend :)


And .....  this is my entry for The Pink Elephant 1-2-3 challenge (1 Image:  Jeremiah 29:11, 2 dies (circle & blossom) and 3 fave embellishments ~ Flowers! (I have 4, 2 doubled up!)
