Hello Friends!! I hope you all is going well with you!!  I  continue to improve each and every day and I have so much to be Thankful FOR!!!  God is so good!!  Each day I feel so blessed to wake up to a new morning!!

This is the day the Lord has made!! Let us rejoice and be glad in it!!!

Keep with this theme of Thanksgiving, I wanted to make a Thank you card for some dear friends from church who made dinner for our this past week while I have been laid up.  I am so thankful for my many friends who have written thoughtful words, prayed for me and have offered so much help.

Oh, Chris, God is so gracious, and I'm so glad to hear you are feeling better each day...and so thankful for each new morning! His mercies are truly new every morning, aren't they? I just love this beautiful card with the wonderful verse that certainly is an encouragement for you and us all! And the wonderful friends who prepared dinner for you and your family this week will love it! I love the beautiful textured from the embossing folder with the pearls and beautiful pink roses! And I love how you added the tan by sponging the leaves!! So clever! An absolutely stunning card (as always) that your friends will love! So glad that you are able to make cards again (help from your sweet girls)! Hugs, sweet friend!

Oh my, your card is just fantastically gorgeous (like they always are BTW). I love all the beautiful pearl flourishes and your embossing is wonderful!! Those roses are so spectacular as well, the color and shape, look like real roses.
I sure hope you are feeling better each day!

Grace said...

Chris this is just gorgeous!!! I love the texture and beautiful flowers and pearls! Your friends at church will love it! I am so thankful you are doing a bit better each day! That's been one of my prayers that you would feel at least a little improvement each day to encourage you along this long journey! Also praying that the swelling comes down way faster than that Dr predicts!!! Praying for good days, restful nights in spite of circumstances... and trusting our Father to heal you completely!


Unknown said...

The depth in this very beautiful card is amazing. Pink roses, pearls and swirls, oh my it is just SWEET! It is so delightful for me to see such creative art. It inspires me ( and others) and I thank you for sharing your talents with us today.

Oh my Chris, I am so glad that God blessed you with healing of your injuries, such a scary thing to go through. I am so glad you had great doctors and nurses and friends to watch over you when you came home, pray for quick continued healing.
Your flowers are absolutely gorgeous and love the embossed background and window for the verse!

Sandee Shanabrough said...

Oh wow! Chris this is absolutely amazing! You have so much talent! For you to pull off this masterpiece while being in so much pain right now is just incredible! Hugs to you!

Diana Nguyen said...

So gorgeous! I can't believe how you can create such soft beauties while in pain - mine would probably be black and white and very little softness! Continuing to pray for you, my sweet friend! Btw, love the window with the floral framing!

Linda Carson said...

Stunning beauty Chris! You amaze me how you keep creating in the midst of pain and do it so beautifully! The design and embellishments are absolutely picture perfect! Continuing to pray for your healing!

Becky said...
