Hang in There


Hang in there is about all we can do some days and today was one of those days!   Just when you think you have it bad you always can stop and reflect and think of someone else that needs your prayers and some compassion more than you do.  I have a very, very good friend who is battling cancer right now and just got through a Major operation.  Hubby and I have been taking him meals and visiting him as often as we can, but I decided yesterday to make him this card to lift his spirits.  Making a Masculine card is a bit challenging for me to say the least.  This one came together based on a sketch over at JUGS.  I don’t know if I will be disqualified for adding the gems all the way around the card…but I couldn’t leave just two. 🙂  Let me explain a little bit about the stamping.  I took my image and first stamped it with some Tim Holtz Distress ink and then took a white prisma colored pencil to add some highlights.  Finished it off with my butterfly also colored with pencils and a ribbon.  The sentiment is from Verve!

Have a wonderful day!
