Feel Better soon!

Don't forget about my two BIG Blog Candies found here.

I am so excited to share this wonderful (okay I think wonderful) card. I need to share a little about the receipant before I get into the craft details or the card won't make since LOL! Okay this is for my Uncle Mike who is a Grandfather figure for Izzy. He has had some heart problems and just got out of surgery. We love to visit Uncle Mike and the picture that I used for the card was from one of our visits this summer.

Now on to the card details. I used this great color combo for the Verve release challenge found here. So not my normal card colors, but with the funky clothes Izzy picked out to wear that day, it worked out just fine.

I also used this sketch as a jumping off point. This is for the Stamping Sisters in Christ challenge site. I really like this site and you can enter as much as you like, so I might be making another card soon. The scripture for this week was chosen by Lisa Hjulberg, Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." This is one of those scriptures that you can never hear to many times. It is such a comfot and so full of hope. One of my favs for sure. Since it was about plans, they have a sketch challenge this week.
Here is my card.
Wouldn't this make you smile if you weren't feeling good? This is the outfit my daughter wore in July in Illinois! Isn't she a riot LOL! I added the fun bling and faux stiching. I really like how it finished the card off. When I was done the first time, I thought I can't send this, but it growing on me and I know my Uncle will LOVE it.
It's a good life!
