What kind of card do you find the hardest to make? I often think masculine cards are the hardest to make. But for me the hardest ones to write are sympathy cards. And even harder than that are ones like I had to write yesterday.
A dear friend of mine was recently diagnosed with cancer. I’m still in shock, as I’m sure she and her family are. I stared at this card for the longest time and didn’t know what to write. So I just told her that I’m praying for her. Because that’s all I can do. And that’s what the Lord tells us to do. So I get down on my knees and pray for her when she comes to mind, which is quite often each day now.
I used one of my favorite flower stamps, Regarding Dahlias, and added some pretty gold embellishments. The sentiment comes from Blessing from Heaven, which is on the retirement list. I embossed it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.
Enjoy your Friday! Thanks for stopping by!

Cancer sucks and it does not play favorites. I, too, just a friend Dx with CA and so I will add a prayer for your dear friend as I am saying one for mine. I am sure the Lord is being flooded with prayers for her and all who are facing the challenge. Your card is PERFECT!!!!!
So pretty, Amy! I struggle with adding gold elements to cards (though I bought them all, LOL!) but you always incorporate them so effortlessly. So sorry to hear about your friends illness. I know your card will bring a smile to her day and she is blessed by your prayers.
