Happiness and Peace

This went out to a lady at church who I felt needed some lifting up, I hope it was an encouragement for her.

I used another of the small coloring cards I bought.

The paper I had chosen to go with this had some small  blue dots in the background very light, so I added some of my own to the image.

Creative Expressions -- to calm and inspire coloring sheet, colored w/markers
Raspberry Road designs -- Love lives here paper
Martha Stewart - border punch

My daughter and son in law arrived yesterday afternoon and we had the UHaul unpacked and it all fit in the garage and in their room by Supper time, so I fed all those that helped out.  So thankful that it all fit so well and that they made it here safely.

On this memorial day I would like to give tribute to all the men and women who died so that we could have the freedom we have today and to their families who lost a loved one and most were so young in age, may we never forget the price they paid for us!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today!!

What a beautiful card and a precious sentiment, Connie! I know it will be an encouragement to your friend at church.

So glad you daughter and SIL arrived safely and that all fit into the garage and their room. And, yes, may we never, ever forget the men and women who have died to defend our freedoms and liberty...and never forget to pray for and support families of those who were lost. So many are so young.

Hugs and love, precious friend!

That was kind of you, Connie. Your cards show such care in the making, and in the giving.
You sound busy at the moment! Have fun.

Hi Connie, love the card you designed for a friend at your church. I am sure this will truly lift her spirits. The verse is beautiful.
Glad your kids arrived safe and sound and you had a great unpacking of their UHaul. Hope your Memorial weekend was wonderful.
Have a great new week. Blessings xo

This turned out so nice with the sweet paper in the background and the loopy border. The hint of blue dots you added to the image makes it look like they were made for each other. So glad everything fit into the allotted space at your house. Have a good week, Connie!
