Praying for So Many

In the past few days my oldest daughter had surgery, a good friend's son lost his eye in an accident and is having a second surgery, and tomorrow my son's wife is having surgery.  Amazingly, I had serious eye pain for two days and I used it as a prompt to help me remember to pray for the eye surgery and my daughter each time it bothered me, which meant a lot of praying! Saturday my eye was fine and I heard that the patients were much better, too. It's amazing how prayer works! Here's another one of my encouragement cards that's going to be hand-delivered tomorrow.

I used the top row across at CAS-ual Fridays tic-tac-toe challenge:

I used one of the stamp sets that has been re-introduced this month at CTMH, called Washi Wonder. There's a great sale for stampers, buy two get one free. If you enjoy stamping or want ideas for using some of the older stamp sets being re-introduced, please check out the blog hop Tuesday morning. I'll have the link here when all the links go live.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

Cards 4 Galz #51 - butterflies, mine are from Recollections

Beautiful card. Love the color combo and great stamping! I thought it was actual washi tape, not stamps! Thanks for playing with us at 4 Crafty Chicks this week!

I LOVE this stamp set ... I thought it was Washi tape at first, but nope, you used incredibly beautiful ink colors and a really fun stamp set! Your butterflies are also incredible, and this whole card just simply makes me happy! So glad you shared it with us at Cardz 4 Galz. Have a wonderful day - Chris, DT
