Sending Blessings

     Today's card is one I'm going to use for a friend who's in need of a few prayers and blessings right now.  She's temporarily home bound and her city is buried under a huge amount of snow so a wintry color combo seemed appropriate.

     The image is from The East Wind.


     I colored with ProMarkers and added a frame cut with a stitched die (Die-Versions.)  It was left over from another project and worked perfectly as a scrap to frame this image.  The CS had been run through my "Linen" embossing folder.

     I added as snippet of ribbon, a bow, and snowflakes for minimal embellishment.  The dp is from one of my brand new paper pads by Graphic 45.  A very CAS design but flat for easy mailing.

     Challenges:

     Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

This beauty will certainly bring some comfort to your friend How good of you to keep her in your mind and heart. Wonderful coloring and your snowflakes look just lovely. Wishing you a great day. Have you been hit with those terrible storms out there on the west coast? I hope not.
