"this too shall pass"





I am still caught up in the texture challenge at Creative Clear Stamps Texture Challenge  - pop over and enter! It's their first challenge so the odds are pretty good  :))))- we are looking forward to seeing these challenges grow!!

This card is done with one of their single sentiments "Things are Difficult"...always like to have encouragement cards in the stash box....so many need to know that we care!  Especially now, times are tough for so many...

Love that our God-given talent can cheer so many and make them smile, laugh, think or just feel special  or cared about and, of course.... loved!!!

Have a blessed day,
