Hello, and welcome!
How are you? I've had a lovely day, mostly to myself for a change, and managed to make a couple of cards....one is a Design Team one, so no peekin' at that, yet.......
The one I want to show you was made for a young mother, at my church. All women, once they reach the age of 18, become members of our Relief Society....basically, it's an organization for the women, where we seek out those in need, share one another's burdens, and learn how to strengthen families....especially our own.
Once a month, we visit, with a partner, another woman from our ward, and usually share an inspirational message from our church leaders. We call it Visiting Teaching.
We make sure that the woman we are visiting is in good health, that her children (if she has any) are safe and well, and we always look for ways that we might assist her, or her family. If there is a need, we try to use the proper channels to make sure that need is filled.......but often, all we need to do is sit a while, and listen........
Over the 34 years that I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, some of my most precious moments have been when I've been doing my monthly Visiting Teaching.
Today's card is for the very lovely young mother that I am privileged to visit.
She is in her mid thirties, has a handsome husband, six children, and has recently taken a teaching degree, and is now teaching in a primary school......she amazes me!
The backing paper is from Kaisercraft.........
The die cut label was sent in a bundle from a blogger friend...thanks again, Shirely-Anne!.......and I stamped the sentiment in Colorbox chalk ink.......three tiny pearls in the corner.......
I cut the green grid paper into a journal card, and layered on a strip of pretty lace, and a little paper clip to embellish.....
I cut the heart from white cardstock and coloured it pink with a Promarker. See the pretty flower? Cut from a headband from Primark....yep....8 of 'em, plus a string of white pearls, all wrapped around a wreath that was supposed to be worn on the head......£1.50! I can't resist having a mooch to see what new ones they have, since my last visit....love Primark!
I thought I'd share the message that I placed inside the card.....I gave it to my young friend, yesterday.
Thanks for looking!
