Showers Of Blessings

Good morning to all my friends and fellow bloggers.  I don't know about showers of blessings but we are certainly getting plenty of rain showers, some of them pretty heavy too!!  My card today is for a very dear old lady of 94, a friend of my mum's from church.   We always go and see her when I visit my sister.  She is so amazing in that she goes out for a walk every single day, unless the weather is really bad and since she lives part way down a fairly steep hill that's not bad going.  Hope I'm doing that when I'm 94!  She loves my cards so I make a point of sending her something every now and again instead of just a letter.

Today would have been my mum and dads birthdays and they would have been 88. (Yes, they were born on the same day and in the same year.) Now they are celebrating their birthdays together - Happy Birthday my darlings!  Miss you still.

My Card

6" square card made from Papermania card
Spellbinders Labels 1
Spellbinders Decorative Labels 1
Spellbinders Umbrella Trio
Spellbinders Rainy Day
TLC freebie-  digi checked  paper 
LOTV - Buttons and Bows

After sticking the digi paper to the front of the card I used SB Label 1 to die cut the centre and then attached a die cut that I cut from SB Decorative Labels 1. I computer generated the verse of scripture and die cut it using one of the smaller dies from the Decorative Labels.  Quite a simple card but also quite effective.  I was spoiled for choice when it came to paper for the inside because there were so many colours to choose from.  I eventually settled on the pink paper from LOTV Nitwits Collection Buttons and Bows.

Hope everybody is keeping well. Take care.

Hi Christine,
I love this fab card.
What a very lovely design, and beautiful paper used too.
That verse is fab, and I love your umbrella and the rain droplets.
We are having much better weather here in my part of Kent.
Big hugs from my house to yours.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Oh my Christine - this lady sounds amazing, just wish I had half her energy. I'm sure she will appreciate the card you made for her, I have a feeling it would suit her personality perfectly! Take care of yourselves.
