Welcome back to my blog & the Amazing Journey Blog Hoppers Faith Journey Hop! If you arrived here from Carol’s blog then you are right on track. If not, no worries, keep hopping & you’ll come full circle.
How we express our faith is different & unique to everyone. I usually don’t post a lot of “religious” stuff. I try to live by, though imperfectly, the 2 commands Jesus gave us. To love God with all our heart, soul & mind and to love our neighbors. Being the hands & feet of Jesus by loving & serving others is my small part in this world & it’s taken me a long time & a lot of grace to discover this.
One of the ways I absolutely have always loved to share is by encouraging others. Everyone can use a smile, kindness, thoughtful deed or some other small act to brighten their lives.
During October, Fun Stampers Journey is hosting a Be Brave Card Drive for breast cancer patients & their caregivers. Anyone battling any type of cancer is in for a rough road & faith can play an important part in the patients or their families journey. So I chose to make a pink ribbon card & use the Through the Storm stamp set.
Pink cards don’t have to be all pink. I used Huckleberry Fusion for the card base. The designer paper is a lovely ombre from the Party Pop Prints paper pack. I embossed the print with the Above the Clouds embossing folder & then highlighted the edges of the clouds with Bubble Gum Panpastels. I used the Heartfelt dies & piercing elements for the heart, which I also edged in Bubble Gum Panpastel. The sentiment is stamped in Watermelon Fusion & the heart is popped up with Journey Foam Squares. Unfortunately, I realized I had not yet purchased any FSJ pink ribbon so I raided my sewing stash for the ribbon & added a Sparkle Heart embellishment to the center. Pink ribbon will definitely be on my next order.
I’ll send this card off with a prayer that it brightens up the day for a patient or their family.
If you would like to send in a card before the end of October to the Be Brave Card Drive, you can check out the details here:
