Angels Watching Over You...

Hello Everyone,

I am here today sharing a very special card I made for one of my Cousin's. She is going through some faith shaking times as she and the doctors try to clear her body from breast cancer. We got good news this past Wednesday that she is clear of cancer through surgery but will still have to take radiation.

Sometimes it is so hard when we see people or someone you love go through physical or any type of trying time. It's been a heartache for me I can't imagine her husband and children. It soothes my spirit to know she trusts God to get her through.  And I am glad we have found prayer, faith and God's word to  be our greatest anchors on keeping sane, hanging strong and knowing when we are weak God will be our strength.

Psalm 91:11
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways

I used Sizzix Bigz Die - Angel Wings , one of Anna Griffins new Cricut Cuttlebug Treillage embossing folders to emboss the wings, Martha Stewarts Glow in the Dark Glitter on the first layer of embossed wings. I made it a 3D feathered layering effect on the wings. For the center bodice I placed the wings on the design paper to get the desired size woman's figure and manually cut it out.
It was all quite easy. The fun part would be making many of these with different beautiful design papers.  The stamp 'God Loves You' was ordered on-line from JoAnn Fabrics which I stamped on the Design Paper Collection by Martha Stewart.

I hope you love this card as much as I do and make your version of it to bless someone letting them know you are praying for them...or  that you Care.
Until next times this Shabby Chic Grannie is out.

Lovely card for such an occasion. Good to hear the cancer is gone - I hope the radiation treatment isn't too awful. God bless you both.
