One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

PTI May Blog Hop

I saw all those yummy colors in the inspiration photo and thought of this quilt piece.  I noticed the Popsicle bars were ombre in color, so I stamped each of the groupings in light to darker shades.  I have a friend that had a major stroke and I am visiting her tonight, she is home but needs 24 hour care because of the disability she is experiencing right now.  We are praying that she will be able to improve all of her body parts to move as they are supposed to!  I am going to bring this card to her along with some flowers!
