Happy Hump Day Everyone!! Thanks to everyone who sent words of encouragement and well wishes when I was not feeling well last week.  It was greatly appreciated.  Thankfully I am feeling much better.  Not 100% yet but better.

Today I would like to share a card I made that I plan to use as a thank you card to a friend.  The sentiment is from the recent release at Our Daily Bread Designs called Francis of Assisi.  The designer paper is Basic Grey Wisteria (one of my faves!!)  The sentiment is framed with Ornate Artisan Tags and Accents.  The panels are cut with Spellbinders Long Classic and Scalloped Rectangles. The lavender silk bow is made with May Arts Lavender Silk ribbon and the bow easy.

Hi Chris! Sorry to hear you've been feeling ill, but glad to know you're getting better. I am recovering from surgery right now (simply NOT fun). God is my strength and my praise, and like you - will get through it.

God bless you,
