Gentle Thoughts During a Difficult Time

I made this card for a friend who recently went through a very difficult time of loosing her sweet baby girl at about 16 weeks into her pregnancy.  What a difficult thing to go through.  So I just wanted her to know that there are people praying for her and thinking of her and her family as they go through this.  She is not alone.  I hope that it will encourage her to keep on moving forward. 
Well, this one I used the Forever Young cart for the sentiment. and I used MS punch on the corners and some Michael's paper flowers showered with some homemade glimmer mist. The stamp comes from an older set of SU.  I love the paper, which is from DCWV, "The Luxury Stack".  I think this card turned out really "peaceful" looking.  I hope that it did encourage her.  Thanks for looking and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Fishing at dusk!

I made this card for my BIL...He recently purchased a small fishing boat for him to...of course to go fishing on.  So naturally, this was my inspiration.  I love how the sun turned out.  Last summer my hubby and I got to watch the sun rise out over some water and it was amazing how as the sun was rising how peaceful and yet all the geese and how nature was just absolutely breathtaking.  So that memory helped me to create this card, too.  I think I did a pretty good job.  LOL  I used my gypsy to weld the boy in the canoe.  The canoe is from  Paper Doll Dress Up and A Child's Year for the boy in the Canoe.  Also, I used Plantin SchoolBook for the "Sun", and Potpourri Basket for the fish.  I also used my Cuttle bug to make the happy birthday greetings and a very old stamp for the "Happy Birthday".  The sun was made with a very bright yellow card stock covered with Stickles of orange and yellow.  Then the sun and the orange card stock were all edged with a brown stamp pad.  I love how this turned out. Well, thanks for looking.
