The rest of the card is pretty straight forward. The paper is pretty old, I think--from MMEye. The border die is from Papertrey, of course, along with the buttons. And now, I should share the photo from Leslie. So selfish of me to save it for last...it is lovely...and it did inspire me to make this card, believe it or not. I just didn't want you to spend the entire post with your head cocked to the side and your nose all crumpled up thinking,..."huuuuuh?"
...My card's not very matchy, matchy, huh. I think Melissa's whole post inspired me, not just the photo. It just made me think of a springtime blue sky, a fresh warm breeze, clean spaces, new beginnings...and blessings. This card is going out to a dear family friend...my mom's best friend...I was born on her birthday and named after her. I am sure neither one of us could count how many times she has prayed for me or someone in my family. My mom is gone...but I'm so glad her dear friend is still here to share my mom's love and life with me. When I got her birthday card in the mail last month, I felt like I got a little of my mom right along with it! Such a blessing!
And speaking of blessings, before I go...you really should hear THIS by Laura Story...her new song, "Blessings". My sister told me about it, and I was finally able to hear it on YouTube. It's worth sharing! But grab a couple tissues...I can't listen to it yet without sobbing.
Hope your day is full to the brim with blessings (the simple, EASY kind!)
