I belong to the Main Street Congregational Church in Amesbury, Massachusetts. One of the ways I serve my church and its people is as a member of the "Called to Care" Committee. This group, among other things, sends cards or notes to members when they are ill, undergo surgery, suffer a loss, welcome a new baby, or, sometimes, just need to be lifted up and know that someone cares about them. Even though I have been away from my church for the last six months as we travel, I have continued to stay connected by creating these cards and notes and mailing them from the road.
One of the women in our church recently fell and broke her ankle. I created this card for her. I cut a piece of scrapbook paper to fit just inside my cream card blank and adhered it to the front. I stamped my text (which I thought rather appropriate!) onto a piece of cardstock, matted with black cardstock, then adhered that to the front.
My focal image is a stamp designed by artist Carol Porter. This image is from her "Funky Girl" series. You can purchase this stamp as well as others in Carol's Etsy Shop here. Carol's art blog is called DAILY ART TANTRUMS which you can find and follow here. The image was stamped on cream cardstock, colored with Copic Markers and cut out. I punched a scallop shape from the same cream cardstock to ground my image.
I am so glad that you stopped by today and thank you for taking a moment to leave a comment. Why don't you create or purchase a card today and surprise someone with a greeting! It just might be the nicest thing that happens to them on the day they receive it in the mail!
