Did anyone think I had disappeared off the face of the earth? I was beginning to wonder about myself! Ha! Last weekend was a busy weekend. Then we had revival at church that began on Sunday night and ran through Wednesday night. Then our modem bit the dust, and a new one just arrived today via UPS. Our UPS delivery man is lucky I didn't grab him and kiss him! LOL. I am such an internet junkie!
I made this card for a Deputy Sheriff from a small county in Virginia (where I am originally from) who was shot in the line of duty a month or so ago. Two officers were killed, and one other officer was injured as well. I actually graduated from high school with the shooter (who was shot and killed by the police), and no one seems to know why he went on a shooting rampage. Anyway, the recipient of this card is paralyzed from the waist down as of now. But, I heard that he was having some pain in his thighs and he told them they were hurting his feet when they were doing physical therapy. So, I am praying that God will heal him, and he will walk again. He is in Georgia in rehab. He goes to church with my parents, and although I do not know him, I wanted to send him a card. Thus, this card was made.
Here's how it was made:
Patterned Papers; DCWV Linen Closet Stack
Frame: Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge cut at 4 1/2" (I think)
I used my Stampin' Up punch for the corners. (I can't remember the name of this punch, and I can't find it in their catalog now.)
I printed the sentiment and cut it with one of my Nestabilities oval dies, and it was perfect with the frame!
Doilies: Martha Stewart punch, with added pearls and gems.
I also used a Fiskars border punch (that you can barely see) and a little baker's twine.
Hope you like it, and have an awesome weekend! I'd love to hear from you. Your comments make my day.
