I love Delaware.  People here are so nice, so caring, so helpful.  I moved here from New Jersey about 18 months ago.  This past year I have had the most difficult year of my life.  I have experienced trauma in every area of my life - healthwise, emotionally, financially, with my apartment, my car - simply everything!  When I arrived I went to a church I found online that was in the neighborhood.  I had emailed them while I was still in New Jersey and they replied.  I decided I would try them first.  Well, after my very first visit I knew I was 'home'.  They have upheld me in prayer, visited me, helped me financially.  The other day my car broke down in the library parking lot (yet again).  I called my son's friend's step-father who always has helped me out when I have had car trouble (and never takes a dime!)  He came out and the problem was more complex than we had expected.  It has been 3 days.  I did not even mention that I had several doctor appointments I had or other appointments. As he was driving me home he passed my street.  I said - you just missed the turn.  He said no I didn't.  We are going back to my house to talk to my wife.  We walked in and she handed me the keys to her mini-van which I have been using for the last 3 days.  People here just have done such amazing things.  Have shown such love and care I am just overwhelmed with gratitude.  I have been SO blessed in so many many ways.  

I sat down tonite to choose a card challenge.  I picked color challenge #32 from Sunnyside Up Creations Blog and sketch #189 from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  I looked on my table which is filled with miscellaneous supplies and there were a few great sheets of chipboard from Scenic Route and there were flowers that matched the color scheme perfectly that had simply the absolute perfect sentiments.  

The Color Scheme:

And my Card:

Now aren't those chipboard flowers THE BEST?  

I am also submitting this card to Word Art Wednesday for the Anything Goes Challenge #90

Off to bed!  Sweet Dreams and thanks for stopping by.

  2. Hi Paula. I am so blessed to hear about your testimony on great people and Church you met when you moved to Delaware. It is such a comfort to know that God takes care of our need and that in times of trouble, He sends wonderful people to encourage and love on us. I pray that you get your vehicle fixed and for blessings on those people who have provided blessings in your life. BTW, I love the bold colors of your card and how you take on the sketch. Awesome! We are blessed that you played with us at Word Art Wednesday this week. Hugs!
