When It Rains, It Pours…

Whew, what a month my family has had.  We were on a roll there for a bit spending every Friday, for three weeks, at the hospital with our little boy.  We finally broke the cycle two weeks ago, successfully went on vacation and all seems to be well.  To make a long story short our little guy had a fall here at home and acquired about an inch long laceration on his forehead right between the eyes.  After three rounds of stitches I think we can call this one well on its way to healing and fast leaving the “danger zone”.  As we walked through these past weeks our community really stepped up to help.  Whether it be physically by coming to the house to help watch kids, coworkers taking on more work, family bringing meals by or just by words of encouragement and empathy we have a lot of folks to thank.  What a great reason to get crafty…

I used my trusty Cameo and software to create this card.  I cut the clouds out of two different papers, inked the edges and used foam squares to pop the foreground cloud up a bit.  I really like the mix of printed elements and cut elements.  This card measures 5×7 so I’ve used it for the folks that interrupted their lives to come help us.  My plan is to make smaller cards to give props to those who kept track of us through out the whole process and who I know were praying for us faithfully.

Thanks for stopping by today!
