Then, we found out that one of my husband's friends is dying of cancer. And I went to a funeral for a church member. And I attended an in-service on Alzheimer's.
Several friends and church members have had surgery lately. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to send get-well cards to them...and they are obeying my command, thank heaven!
I'm also grateful for Cheryl, who sent a bunch of get-well and sympathy cards for Karen's Card Shop. Here are a few of the beautiful cards she sent.

the Karen of Karen's Card Shop so happy!

the idea of using gorgeous photos simply matted on cards.
Now, my last post showed two cards using Papertrey's Ruby Reprise set, which is just as cute as can be. (You can see the other two cards on this post.) Today, we're looking at card #3. Y'all know I tried it on a white card base first, but it simply didn't work. Flexed to a light blue and it was much better. Pink, red, and baby blue make a lovely combination.
Typically, I don't use bright red on get-well cards, but this one works for me. Not sure why, but does it really matter? Of course not.
Tomorrow, I'll show you my new goodies from Marco's Paper and tell you how I won an extremely unexpected and intriguing prize. Good things come to those who spend money.
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
