kinda got side tracked from challenge! and a prayer request

This week's challenge at Creative Clear Stamps was to use Ruby Red, Kraft and Caramel...well.. had this card all laid out but this new ribbon ....kept calling my name!!! so...switched out the Kraft mat for this asparagus mat - (even have metallic paper that matches ribbon perfectly)...so bye bye challenge....
HELLO to my card...LOL


the only things about this card I can definitely tell you is that the ribbon is from Michaels and the sentiment is from Creative Clear Stamps "Holiday Sentiments" stamp set....sentiment stamped in Ruby Red...used my new MS punch (that I love and had to have after seeing some of you use it...enablers...ALL of you...LOL)
base cardstock is SU's Ruby Red and asparagus is from GinaK...dp from stash!

Now, have a prayer request for a dear friend who two weeks ago had her 7th child!!! but her mother passed away this morning. My friend is sick and 2 of her kids had swine flu last week and now 2, possibly 3, have it now. She is having to travel a few hours away with the 2 youngest and her husband to help with funeral arrangements and leaving the other 5 to be cared for....and she is sick herself...she and hubby really need prayer!
Thank you so much!

Linda, I can't blame you! I would have to adapt to that ribbon too! Just beautiful! And the sentiment is perfect! So sorry to hear about your friend. Prayers are being said and I hope all are on the mend soon. We'll keep you in our prayers, too, as it has to be hard to see the need and not be able to do what you would like. Blessings to you!
