I Lift Up My Eyes

fromtheLord

Good morning, sweet friends :)  Today’s card is a little bittersweet for me.  Though I loved making it, it is for a dear former colleague who is going through a very difficult time.  I wanted to make her a special card and send her healing wishes.  She has great faith and is a very strong person but I just need to let her know I’m thinking about her.  I knew that I wanted to use a Verve Scripture verse and this one fit perfectly.  I’m using Stacey’s newest Curtain Call Colours from her colour challenge this week :)  I thought this Basicgrey Olivia paper matched the colours so well :)  I hope you’ve all had a fabulous start to your week.  Thanks so much for visiting…I appreciate the time you take to come and take a peek and to comment :)  Hugs!

What a super colleague you are, Diva! I'm sure she'll really appreciate this gesture: I'm doing the exact same for a colleague here! I find sneaking these beauties in their lunch-boxes goes down well :D
Perfect balance with the bling and that button! I wouldn't expect anything less!
Hugs,

Stunning as always Maureen! I'm just about to sit down with this colour challenge; hoping to pair it up with PTI's Make it Mondays challenge too. I LOVE the flowers in Stacey's inspiration photo!

Beautiful card, Maureen. Love the way you composed the circle with the scripture, flower, button, & bling. (button & bling... haha!) Perfect patterned paper for the challenge. I'm sure your friend appreciates knowing that you're thinking of her -- and what a lovely way to show it.

This is so lovely. The sentinent panel is especially nice. I love the plain janes!

Christina said...

Another beautiful card, Maureen! That patterned paper is stunning, and I love the flower stamped behind your sentiment. Thanks for joining us at the Curtain Call this week!
