Beach Scene

Hi friends,

Today's card is a fun beach scene card with an awesome scripture verse.  The Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge this week is to make a card with 'Heaven' in it.  This scene is certainly heavenly and the wonderful scripture from Psalms is so inspiring.

I gave this card to my friend Bridget who is battling cancer.  I drove her to Mass General Hospital today for her pre-surgery appointment.    She wisely realized she probably wouldn't have the energy to fight Boston traffic by herself given that she had chemo last week.  She was pretty wiped out.    This is about as close to cancer as I've ever been and it's not pretty.  She is handling it well, but she is so sick and wiped out and has double surgery (chest and artery) in two weeks.   She loved the card and appreciated the ride.   I was happy to help out. If you believe in the power of prayer, please say a prayer or two for her, that she will have courage to battle the cancer and she is completely healed of the disease quickly.

Update:  Check out my post on 6/19/2012 for the amazing story of answers to prayer regarding Bridget.  God is Good!

Oh, and one last thing.  This card is for the craft a scene challenge.

All month long you can enter your 'craft a scene card' in their challenge.  This month's theme is beaches.  Perfect.
