Garden Fence

I have been following Leslie's Blog for a many years and she has been with me ever since the start of my blog being such an encouragement for me.  She has just retired from her job and I so wanted to share in her excitement by sending her a card to celebrate.  Not only does she have her blog of beautiful card creations she does, you really need to check it out she brings her scene's to life with her coloring, but she also shares her love of her garden and her sweet furbabies on this Blog .  So when I was thinking of her retiring I was thinking how she will have more time to enjoy her wonderful babies and beautiful gardens with her hubby so that is what made me pick this scene.  Of course my coloring isn't even in the same league with her but I know she would know the thought and love that went into the card.

I am sharing my card once again over at Stephanie's Roses of Inspiration .  I see she has a sale 25% off your order on her Etsy page. Stop by and get the code, perfect time to shop, especially if there is something you have your eyes on :)

I just had to share too that Evelyn was able to come to church on Sunday, it was so special to see her there and even the Pastor was quite chocked up during our prayer time sending thanks to God for bringing her through all of this, quite emotional time and an answer to prayer.  Here is a picture that her Mom posted before leaving for church.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and letting me know of your visit,

Have a great week,

This card is amazing in real life, but I will say also that you got a darn good picture of it, Connie! Thank you so much for both the card and your sweet words of friendship. Your update about Evelyn had me all choked up. I'm so happy to hear about her good progress and to see her darling photo.

Oh, Connie, sweet baby Evelyn is so precious, and I can imagine how everyone must have been choked up during prayer time as you were all praising God for His mercies toward this precious little one and her dear parents. What a blessing, and thanks for the continued updates, my friend. And what a gorgeous card and so perfect for our friend Leslie! It's so "her" with her garden and beautiful flowers! It's beautifully colored and made, and I know she was tickled to receive it from you. She is one special and gifted friend! Hugs, sweet friend, and have a wonderful week!

Connie, I'm glad to be catching up with you! You have been busy!
Fantastic news about Evelyn! My prayers continue that her little tummy will heal and she will grow strong. That dear little girl.
Amazing to think that people in other countries miles away have prayed...our loving God has heard us.
The garden gate card is so pretty, you know just how to add the right decorative touches without taking the focus away from the picture.
Blessings, dear Connie! Blowing cool breezes your way! :)
