For MaryLou

It has been a while - we have just had a week of travel and visiting family - what a great Christmas, to share with family and friends.  I hope you have also had a blessed Christmas.
This is for a friend with many health problems.  The latest issue for her was back surgery - so she spent Christmas in a rehab facility.  It is a very pleasant place, but still lonely.  We had a chance to visit briefly a few days ago, and now I want to continue to do what I can to cheer her.
I used some Spellbinder dies I have had for a long time.  The blue and paisley as well as the ribbon are also from my stash.  I added the gold strips to cover an error in cutting - I suspect a few of you can relate!  The sentiment is Our Daily Bread (Faith).
Sketch, and neglected stash:

Dorothy: These are wonderful colors, and of course your scripture is AWESOME! I feel so blessed to have you share God's Word in your art, and I thank you for sharing it with us in this week's challenge. God is just SO GOOD to us and I'm super pleased that you chose to play along again this week. Hope to see you again real soon. Have a blessed week!

This card was eye-catching--even in a thumbnail on WAW! Love the pastel paisley paper and can definitely relate to cutting errors! All is well, though. Praying your friend will be encouraged by your card!
