Little Miracles

Today I wanted to share a card that I made for a good friend of mine. A friend who is going through a difficult time right now. With having health issues and waiting for test results, time can seem like your worst enemy! So with that in mind I felt the need to make a card to cheer her up.

No matter who you are or where you come from, there is always someone you know, or maybe it is you yourself, who is going through a difficult time. Maybe it is health issues, financial difficulty, or just marriage/relationship problems. Whatever the story, many of us are in need of "Miracles". Some are small and some are big, and whatever the size, we all, well for the most part, except them with open arms. For those that don't, or refuse to believe, extended time becomes a friend! Usually it shows were the struggles began and helps to provide an insight has to where they have gone. Knowing this, reveals, that where there seemed no possible way out, is now relief and normalcy! Could it be that a you just witnessed a Miracle in the making! Something to think about for sure!

It is my prayer that for those of you who feel the weight of your situations heavy on your life, that God will provide you with the strength to get through each new day. That with each new day there will be someone who will come along side and help you. Maybe you just need someone to care enough to talk with or better still, to listen! May God bring those people who will bless you and help you into your lives. Keep pressing on! The road ahead will be much brighter! Just look to the Son!

I decided to make this card using 3 different challenges. The first is from Sweet & Sassy! Here is this weeks Sweet Stop Sketch.

The next challenge is at Stampin' Sisters In Christ. Their challenge is to use stripes on your card. And last, is the Happy Monday Challenge at Deedee's Craft Blog where you need to use the colours Turquoise/Blue, Pink, & Green. Please check out all of these amazing challenges for prizes and for inspiration.

Supplies Used:
Digital Image - Little Miracles(Deedee's Digis), PP-Cinderella Collection(Piggy Tales), Chatterbox, Cdstk- Reflections, Inks - Stampin Up, Stickles - Ranger, Tombo - White Gel Pen, Brads - Dollarama, Adhesives - Fiskars, Stampin Up, Lacy Punch - Martha Stewart, Organza Ribbon- Unknown, Digital Sentiment - Deedee's Digis(Little Miracles Set)

Maybe you know someone today who needs cheering-up! Why not send them a card, or give them a call. I think that best thing any of us can do, to even the stranger on the street is SMILE! Maybe that is all it takes, just a smile to show someone you care!

Take Care & Hugs
