Over the....

top.  Yep, we got bling, metal, multiple layers, glitter, color, embossing....did I forget anything? Yeah, probably did but the point is that this card is NOT shy.  It is loud and proud and it is for my friend who is going through some very challenging health issues.  She has received some news that is not the news that she was hoping for.  It is not happy news and it is going to take a lot of her strength to go the next step in her journey.  And I feel for her.  And, I can't do a whole lot for her....to help her except to let her know that I am thinking of her.  That I know what she has ahead of her is scary but that I also know that she has it in her to dial back her fears and increase the volume on her hopes and that, yes that, is what will get her through the next few months.  So, I wanted a card that was vibrant, and hopeful. And, unfortunately,  a card and a prayer is all I can do for her at the moment.


And this is the inside because I am trying to finish off more of my cards on the inside.  Just trying to be pretty inside and out ;-D  


I am also going to send her a pair of very bright, very fun shoe laces.  Because, I know she will be up and about again and when she is I want her to have some fabulous, funky shoe laces to be-ribbon her shoes.  Thanks for stopping by.....I hope you all are having a good day ;-D

Be well,
Sheila

Sheila-you are such a beautiful person both inside and out (just like your cards)! Your friend is a very lucky person to have you in her life-I know you and your creations will give her the comfort she'll need. Love the vitality and hopefulness of your card design-the butterfly is positively glowing!

You are the perfect friend - who can fail with you on their team?! Love this in all it's glory! It makes me smile that I am struggling with "clean and simple" while you are happily dancing over the top! Love it and you, girlfriend!
