May Your Spirits Be Bright

 
Hello, I'm off work today and up very early to take my mom in for knee replacement surgery.  I'm praying for a very successful surgery and a quick recovery for her.   She's so strong and I'm sureher faith and strength will help her through this. 
I do have a card to share for two challenges.  The Moxie Fab Canvas/Burlap Challenge and the Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge.   On my scrapbooking weekend, I had a ton of fun using different patterned papers to create cards.  I love how this My Mind's Eye paper from the Lost & Found collection goes perfectly with the Verve Sentiment.
 
I hope you have a great day!

oh, that piece of patterned paper is perfect for the card! Agreed! Love when those beautiful images fit in so well :) Hi and hugs to mum. I know it will be weeks of recovery but everyone I know who's had the surgery has been so happy after :)

Great papers and love the burlap piece you have added behind the sentiment panel. Know a bunch who have had their knees replaced and the pain free movement afterwards is well worth the post op recovery time! Hugs to her for a quick recovery :)

You work magic with patterned paper as you do with stamps.
