God Bless You Peggy!

Last week we had a call from our old landlady with some very sad news.  Her Mom who was our upstairs neighbor and friend had passed away.  She was a sweet woman.  She was always in such tremendous pain and had a difficult time getting around, needing a walker and a wheelchair.  Nearly the only time she would get out of the house was monthly when I would drive her to the hospital for her doctor appointment.  She was so sweet and always ordered us surprises - DVDs, make-up, household gadgets etc.  Always thinking of someone else even when she suffered so.  Well, as sad as it is to hear that she is no longer with us, at least she is free from all that pain and rejoicing with the Lord.  I made this card for her family in her memory and to bring them some comfort and let them know we are thinking of them and praying for them at this most difficult time.

I used the sketch #80 from My Time Made Easy

I used a creme and black velvet paper by SEI for my background.  I stamped John 14:27 and my sentiment on grey cardstock and matted with black cardstock.  I embellished simply using one of my favorite Sizzix embossing diecuts.
Here is my card:

I am also entering this in Word Art Wednesday Chellenge #64.

Thank you for stopping by.
