3M: Friends are sweet!

Hello friends!

We are home from the hospital
and the hubby is resting and recovering ♥
I recently heard a beautiful quote that has been resonating with me.
 It read "When life throws you a curve ball, learn to bend so you can reach it."

This week, I've bent.
And I've prayed, comforted, nurtured and sat in the silence of worry.
And in that same bending,
 I've also had the blessing of friends showering us 
with love, prayer, friendship, support ♥
I'm so, so, SO grateful for that!

It's the 9th of the month and that means it's time for a new 3M image.
Jeanette sent us this month's image to create with 
and it's a little cutie called Honey Pip by Nellie Snellen.
When I saw the stamped image, I saw blues and yellows,
so that's what I went with.


My card is VERY simple ~
 the image was so large and bold and took up so much of the A2  card front 
that I had to think a little bit outside the box.  
I remembered my MFT speech bubble dies and thought it would be fun
to use one of those, so I double cut cardstock using that die.

The sentiment is one from my stamp sets by CC Designs ~
I thought it was a pretty sentiment to match the card :)

And that's it for today.
Be sure to see what Jeanette and Barb made this month 
using Honey Pip on their blogs. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
