I Lift Up My Eyes

Good morning, I'm popping in to share a card I recently had published in PaperCrafts current issue of Stamp It. This card is on page 63.  Unfortunately, it is going in the mail to a family who lost their beautiful five year old, Tony, to a 2 and a half year battle with brain cancer.  I do not know their family personally; rather through a co-worker.  I have read their updates through CarePages and their faith is beautiful despite one of the most difficult times a family could ever endure.  I will continue to lift them up in prayer. 

Ingredients:  Stamps:  PTI, Verve; Ink:  Ranger Distress Ink Antique Linen; Old Olive; Chocolate Chip; Crate Paper Stickers and Paper

  3. This is beautiful, Lynn. I loved it when I first saw it in the magazine, especially the way those gorgeous leaves frame the sentiment. I'm sure the family that receives it will be touched by your kindness.

  6. oh, I love this sentiment, Lynn...it was the one I sent to my friend who passes away last week and it was also in the pamphlet at the funeral. I just love it :) What a beautiful card, no wonder it was published. How sad for this family...can't imagine burying a child. I'm at the hair salon right now and catching up on comments under the dryer :)
