"Count Your Blessings" is the card that I had been working on for a couple of days. Just couldn't get it completed. Just couldn't think of a sentiment for it. I bought the new Thanksgiving Lite Cartridge on Friday and late on Saturday night I was told a dear friend had died. She fought a good fight with cancer but in the end she lost. My heart is so grieved for her. I think of her husband, daughters and their families and my sadness is minimal to what they are going through.
Today as I sat at my scrap table after being on face book I decided to complete my card. I gave the sentiment "Count Your Blessings" for dear friend. Vickie was truly a blessing in my life, her families lives and all those around her. She always had a smile on her face and even during all the chemo and radiation she continued to work. She always looked at her basket as full and overflowing in blessings. I wish I and more of us had that attitude instead of this whoa is me. I know I can drain my family and I know others drain me from that attitude. We need to learn to love and forgive more and to choice our battles. Most of our battles aren't worth the fight when we lose a relationship in the end. I will always treasure my friend Vickie and will think of her smiling face often.
Here are the some of the products I used for my A2 card:
My little pumpkin is an Imagininsce stamp and colored in with Copic Markers: YR04, YR07, Y17, G05. I used Basic Grey Papers.
