Poppy Get Well Card

This card is for hubby's cousin who sang in the church choir and is now battling cancer. Over the years I've purchased old hymnals in thrift shops that I can use in cards and crafts. I got four that were falling apart for about 50 cents each. I chose a hymn about God's miracles that I thought his cousin might know so that I could write my note inside about how I'm praying for a miracle in his healing. I added a poppy I colored with Copic markers and the sentiment from a Graciellie digital stamp set, Poppy Wishes. I used a paper cutter to cut the inside out of black cardstock to make a frame to pop up over the hymn background. If you'd like to hear this hymn and the story behind its creation, you can listen on youtube.

Thank you for visiting! I'm so glad you share your love with others through your cards. May God bless you with His love in return!
