God Will Lift You...and So Will I

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice (you know it's my fave!)

one of the cards I have on my list to make is for a very dear friend who has just recently received some devastating news. I want her to know that I am here for her. This sentiment today at Create with TLC summed it all up so perfectly.

I'm also using some beautiful free digital items available over at the Crafty Secrets blog. both the bg paper and post card image can be be found there. I hope it creates the peaceful, but encouraging feel that my friend needs right now.

a frame was cut for the postcard image using Spellbinders dies, flowers are a combo of Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts, and my stash, buttons are vintage and stash, twine is from The Twinery, burlap ribbon snippet is from May Arts, vintage sheet music was cut with a Jenni Bowlin punch, and doily is from my stash. distressing and faux stitching complete the card.

I forgot to add that after I cut the frame, I stamped it with a SU! woodgrain bg stamp. there is also a little piece of a ticket hiding under the sentiment banner.

I'm putting together my blog candy and will get that posted soon! hope many of you sign up! welcome to my new followers, too!!!!  :)

Wow! This card is beautiful! I love how you incorporated so many elements. The farm scene looks great amongst the whole look. I also really like the little bit of burlap with the button. Little touches make a big difference! Thanks for playing with us at Inkspirational!
