Hello! Today, I have two projects for you combined with several challenges!
The first card was made for a special friend. Yesterday, my friend Hilda passed away. She has been very sick for a little more than a year and the LORD has taken her home. She is no longer suffering here on earth.
Hilda was a wonderful woman, while she lived in Wisconsin she grew up in the south and carried a southern drawl with her in phrases that I know I will miss. She was my childhood best friend's mother, and a dear friend who lives across the street. When I was in beauty school, she let me practice on her, giving her manicures, facials, hair cuts, perms, etc.
This card is for her loving husband, Frank. I know he will miss his best friend. I am praying for his family, would you please join me in praying that they would feel God's presence with the peace that surpasses all understanding that only HE can give? Thank you!!! Hug your loved ones! Your time on earth is SHORT!
Now, as far as my card is concerned (that really is the small stuff!) ...
