Keep your faith...
So I took a little break from making fall cards to make this one from 2 retired SU! sets I received in the mail yesterday.
I like the watercolor look, where things are slightly askew, not quite in the lines... this set drew my attention when I was looking for something else, actually. Love the simplicity of the flowers slightly sketched look. The sentiment came from another retired SU! hostess set called Faith in Nature.
I like the the reminder in the sentiment-it reminds me of a framed piece I have sitting on my coffee table that reads "I believe in the sun even when it's not shining, In love even when I am alone and in God even when He is silent."
I'm going to stamp a verse on the inside that reads "He has made everything beautiful in its time." Ecc. 3:11
Someone very close to me is going through a very difficult time and I made this card with her in mind. It breaks my heart to see this wonderful, lovely person hurting so much. How I wish I could heal that hurt, but truly I know, the Lord will and He will make something beautiful from it.
That's all from me. Hope your evening is wonderful!
