A sad new day

 I have been neglecting the SplitCoastStampers Teapot Tuesday challenges recently, but the story last week encouraged me to be involved more regularly. Sue from Kansas recently lost her husband of over 40 years,  They were rvers, and since we were also rvers, I feel a connection, and wanted to send a card to let her know people are thinking of her.  (See the challenge here:  MMTPT390).
New: Sue is beginning a new phase of her life; a new technique - cutting and sponging the flowers in this image from A day for Daisies;  words:  Word Art digis; DP by Theresa Collins;  (faux) stitching - border embossing folders by Cuttlebug; ribbon; dark teal and shimmery silver cs by Recollections; glitter on centers of flowers.

So sorry to hear about Sue's loss. Losing someone (especially a treasured spouse of 40 years) is soo difficult. Your card is truly lovely with the embossed stitching and those flowers. Thanks for sharing Dorothy.

Love the CAS design and seeing how you used the past Scripture Word Art for this project. We are so blessed you joined our Challenge weeks ago and would love for you to join our new Challenge still ongoing at Word Art Wednesday. Want to leave you with the inspiration of the Scripture in 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 which says, "But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”— these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. " Have a lovely week.
