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!

Create along With Us ~ August

It is that time of the month where we play along with the designers from PTI instead of a Make It Monday card.  They are so busy giving us inspiration from the new release we get to choose one of their cards and CAS it , hence the Create along With Us!!

I chose Betsy's card here:
Blessed-who-mourn 
Simliar layout, some of the same flowers, some different and of course a different sentiment, but I used the die and sponged on some color just like Betsy!
I have a cousin who has uterine cancer and I am thinking I will be sending her cards a lot to lift her spirit and to remind her that we are praying for her.
Thank you for stopping by friends!  Hope you are having a great week, it is getting ready to really heat up here in the PNW...by Friday and Saturday we are expecting triple digit numbers!  EEK!!  And we have to travel south a couple of hours and go to a wedding...that will be a HOT one and it is an outside wedding!!
stamps & dies:  PTI Forget me Nots, and Freindship Jar: Flowers, Inspired by: Prayer
Heart Hugs, friends!
