bundles of bouquets

So, yah...remember those My Favorite Things sets from the other day? Yep, I got to stamp with one of them yesterday! I used the most beautiful Bundles of Bouquets set. This card uses some really fun things. First, I used some of my new Basic Grey ice cream parlor paper. Isn't it just elegant in this application? Then I used my new rectangle Nestabilities...both a straight and scallop cut. Oh, and even though you can't see it I did emboss the white rectangle too. LOVE them! The final thing that I'm thrilled about is that the base card is made with some light blue Bazzil paper that I got on clearance some time ago. I just LOVE how it all goes together so well! Last night was Bible study but in the afternoon I got a call from one of the participants that her mother wasn't doing well (ongoing health issues) and that her mom will die very soon. So, I made this card, took it with to study and everyone signed it. This is going to be such a hard time for her so I hope that this card brings her some comfort.

I am so pleased this morning because my neck feels SO much better. Still a little pain when I turn it one way but I can live with it! Woohoo! Thank you so much for your words of comfort yesterday! I so appreciate it! As of late morning yesterday my grandfather was doing a little better. The fever was able to be controlled by medicine and there is no pneumonia so those are both good things. I'm hoping to get a call again this morning to let me know what is going on today as well. Thank you for letting me tell you all about it and for praying for my grandpa. It is good to know that so many people are praying and thinking of him!

Yeah, so I accidentally erased my signature and I have no idea where to find it so you'll be fish-less today! LOL! I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!
