I just heard some disturbing news, which had me scurrying, because I wanted to send a card right away. A wonderful lady and friend, who happens to be the wife of one of my husband's many, many first cousins, just found out that her 90-year old mother has some serious health complications, and will be undergoing quite a number of medical procedures to try to help her. I met her mother at her son's wedding several years ago, and I thought, "What a friendly person her mother and her twin sister are."
At Liz Thayer's "shoebox crop," which I have mentioned a few times before on my blog, we made (or depending on our time allowance, gathered materials for) at least 15 cards, with many occasions and styles represented. But, there were two particular cards with "Thinking of You" themes that I thought would be perfect. On the first card, which I will send to Barbara's mother, I added another color for the cardbase, thus making the card a bit bigger and adding another layer. On this particular card, I tweaked the layout just a big as well. Now, I must put on my creative "inside" thinking cap and come up decorations and a verse to fit the occasion and my recipient. I came up with a little poem about angels watching over her, which I think will be just right. I hope Katie enjoys likes her card and the message is helpful to her at this time.
