Jesus Cares

Good Morning! I love it when you get the chance to make cards with things you absolutely love! Yesterday was one of those days for me. One of my friends suffers from depression and is going through a hard time right now. I knew I wanted to make her a card but was delaying it a bit because I just don't know what to say. I still don't know what to say but you know what? I made the card, I'm going to write her a note and send it out. Good intentions just don't count in this case...I must turn the intentions into action.

I have come to love limeLIGHT Papercrafts and the fun things I can find there to craft with as well as Mandy (she is just too sweet and kind!). The FABULOUS heart edge ribbon that you see here is from LLPC. I wanted to use it on this card to reflect my care for my friend. The stamp set is from another place that I love Sweet N Sassy Stamps (Korin is so forward thinking and kind, too). The stamp set is Jesus Cares and of course I used that sentiment to remind her how much her Heavenly Father cares for her. And I have to mention the patterned paper. It is from Basic Grey's Eva Pack. I chose this particular piece because my friend is a wonderful painter and I hope that she will love the graceful lines of the paper. The fact that it is pink and brown...well that just makes me love it even more! I must tell you that my friend Sarah really inspried this card as I first saw her use the bird image to its full potential See her card HERE.

So...are you all done with your Valentine's projects? I am almost there. I'll be working on one more thing today and then I should be all set to go...yay!

I hope you have a fantastic day today...make it all God has planned for you!

Beautiful, it should bring a smile to her face! Very kind gesture. I know depression is a hard thing. My son went through that last year, and it is hard to see someone you love work through that. I believe Faith is extrememly important, and know she will get through this with supportive friends like you. hugs

A lovely card, Lorie! I know what you mean about saying the right thing to someone who is suffering. I sent one like that the other day, just saying I care about her, praying for her and here if she would like to talk. I hope it helped her and I am sure you feel the same about your friend.

Hugs!

I am the queen of good intentions. I always say that if intentions were enough I'd be a saint. hahaha! But I know your friend will love this. It is always nice to know that a friend is thinking of us.
