Lifting You in Prayer

It seems like lately I've received so many prayer requests. What am I saying? There are always people who need prayer. Sometimes even me! Perhaps it's just that I've grown in my faith and so my heart is more open to the needs of others. Whatever the reason, I'm always ready and willing to pray for anyone. I believe in the power of prayer. And I'm also keenly aware that "but by the Grace of God, there go I."

So, when one of my Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps DT sisters asked for prayers for her birth mother, who is newly diagnosed with cancer, and for cards to cheer her, I was happy to oblige. This is the card I made. I specifically bought the stamp set Lift Up Our Hands from Our Daily Bread Designs to make cards of encouragement in times of need.

The cardstock, DP and ribbon are from Papertrey Ink. I tied the ribbon through a "keyhole" embellishment by Melissa Frances. And, of course, I did a lot of stitching with my Janome Sew Mini.

Okay, I'm off to tend to my chores... and to prepare for tomorrow's Challenge for a Sunday Afternoon. You won't want to miss it! Have a great day, my friends!
