My friend needed a lift.

I have a friend who is just getting hit by life. It happens to all of us and boy oh boy do I thank God that it doesn’t hit all of us at the same time! We need our sane friends to help see us through the not sane times. Even if it a hug or card or call or…

I have this friend who took in her neice and nephews and has had them for a year so far. That is hard. Its different if you get a baby, you get used to it but taking in someone’s kids who have other rules? yeah fun. Well she has had a sick dad and and sick her self and stuff and life and… so I made her a card to maybe give her a lift. Guess what? it worked, BUT not only did it give her a lift I got one too from her telling me she loved the card and thanks for the thoughts. That’s the cool thing about giving. She lives a few blocks away so I hand delivered it. This is the card.


I used Karen’s image – Little helping hands

The Angel Company- Trendy greetings senti

Stickers from K and company

Slice die cut machine for flowers

and SU bandaid stamp for background.

DP is Die cuts with a view.

CS is the stuff you buy at Joanns in a package ON SALE for $2

Color pencils, oms, markers, dimensional glaze. Gem, foam tape and 2 sided tape.

Of course today I was inspired again by another place or 2 so im making cards this weekend. Today is my anniversary and my husband is helping the neighbor and Im hanging with my youngest daughter – LOVE it!-
