WSC80 This One's For Herb...

This card has been made using this week's Week-end Sketch Challenge found on Cambria's Blog. It has also been made for Herb and his wife Amelia. Herb is a long time member, the secretary and patriarch of three generations at our church. On Thursday he had surgery for pancreatic cancer. Praise God, the surgery was successful and the doctors are cautiously optimistic. Please keep them in your prayers through the coming weeks as this time will be critical in his recovery. I orginally looked at this verse, but decided to try other things......they all failed, and what do you know this verse was a perfect fit......maybe I was being told something??

I started with a base of Old Olive, topped with Baja Breeze and Very Vanilla and a piece of my brand new Windsor Knot DSP. The square panel is VV topped with three strips of co-ordinating paper from the same pack. The main panel has been stamped using ODBD's Scripture Collection 2 in Close to Cocoa and cut out using circle nestabilites. I finished off by tying some Close to Cocoa satin ribbon (retired) around it. I kept it fairly simple and neutral since it is for a couple --- I hope they like it.

That's all for today and for all the mother's out there Happy Mother's Day!!!! Thanks for visiting!! :)
