A New Road...

Coffee of the Day - French Vanilla

A young gentleman who works for my husband out at Camp is going to be starting down a new road at the beginning of next year. He is going to be a missionary in Africa! What an exciting adventure for him! He has gone many times on missionary trips, but has decided to take this on permanently. We are so happy for him, and of course needed a card for him as he begins his new venture in life. I thought this wonderful digi from Doodle Beans fit the bill perfectly. It just goes to show how versatile it is! It also happens to fit the new challenge over at Stampin' Sisters in Christ this week - make a card for someone to tell them that you are praying for them.

I kept the card fairly simple since it is going to a guy. As it is, I am probably going to catch a bunch of grief for the grosgrain ribbon and knot at the side of the card, but oh well, I had to have some kind of fiber on the card, for goodness sakes! giggles! The paper is from Basic Grey's Scarlet's Letter collection. Added just a few vintage buttons tied with linen thread, a quick sentiment to know that he is not going on this journey alone, and the card is finished. Oh yes, I did distress the edges of the card base. sorry for my crooked scan.....

Everyone have a beautiful Sunday! may it be as precious as you are to me!
Jennifer

Great job on this one and perfect for the occasion -- in fact, it would be perfect for many times when prayer and goodwill wishes are in order.
