Prayers & Cards for Isabel

 Good morning, friends! I hope everyone is staying warm! We had some snow during the night and morning and I think it's just crazy that when I went to church yesterday morning, I was so hot because it was 70 degrees! Now, it's barely above freezing!

I have a 2 part request today. First, I'm asking for prayer for my 11 year old cousin who is having her second brain surgery tomorrow. She has CMV and they are hoping this second surgery will help her to not have seizures every day. It won't prevent them from happening, but it will help them not be as often. The first brain surgery she had a few years ago has lessened the intensity of the seizures. So, I'm asking for prayer for Isabel and for her parents and the doctors.

The second part of my request is that I'd like to send her something special and I thought if any of you have any little thinking of you cards laying around that maybe you could send me with a special note to her in it? Or if you know of anyone who likes to send cards to people, ask them to send one to her? Her name is Isabel and you can send them to my address. I'll be sending a package of cards from some at my church as well, probably next week sometime. (and as more come in, I will send them on to her) If you are able to, I would be so grateful! If you can't, please say a prayer or two for her. Those are much more needed and appreciated more than you'll ever know on this earth!

Thank you!!!

Have a blessed day! ~H

Puzzle Card

Good morning! I'd like to share a card with you today that I made for a friend on one of my design teams. I saw this little image at Kadoodle Bug Designs and immediately thought of her! The paper I got last year for a "Hope for Brady" blog train (unfortunately, they didn't put their name on the background, so I don't know which designer it is from! Here is a link to the beginning of the blog train this year, though! )


Thanks for stopping by today! Have a blessed day!

Here are the cards I made for the blog hop:
Card 1:
I cut out and popped up the poppies (oh my goodness, the irony of that! lol).
I also put stickles on the middle and lines of the poppies and used liquid pearls
around the scallop edges of the green circle behind the poppies.
The paper and image are from the new "Poppies for You" set!
Aren't the new releases fun? And perfect for Mother's Day!
(I cased the card from It's a Stamp Thing.)

Card 2:
I cut out and popped up the butterfly on this one and you can't see all the
sparkle on the bee and butterfly, but they are sparkly!!! I also used rhinestones on the butterfly & flower.
The paper and images are from the new "Doodle Garden" set!
 I just love the whimsical design of this set!

Card 3:
(I left it blank so you can imagine your own possibilities of using a journal card!)
I used lots of rhinestones and some stickles to make the butterfly sparkle!
The paper is from the new "Doodle Garden" set and the journal card is from the new
"Doodle Garden Journal Card/Photo Mat" set!
Loving this set so much!

I wonder, do you think I love this Doodle Garden set or what?!? lol

Here is your "freebie" from Diane's Daydream Designs!
It's a journal card from the "Doodle Garden Journal Card Set" Enjoy!

But you can get it along with the others in the set right here!
