I can tell I am going to love this set from SU!, Sheltering Tree! I created the two tones of flowering buds by stamping once in Strawberry Slush ink, then re inking my stamp and stamping off once on scrap paper before stamping the same buds again with a slight change in placement. I used a micron .01 pen and a ruler to add the short line from my branch to connect the punched heart shape. That idea came to me after completing the card, as I am meeting two wonderful friends for coffee today, I wanted this card to be a friendship Valentine for these women who are faithful to meet with me for prayer for each other often. Their friendship is precious because we know that strength is derived when two or more are gathered to pray faithfully for each other. What a blessing to have friends like these...but I have to say that this friendship has taken much intentionality on my part...perseverance to contact, prepare in ways of hospitality with a home cooked soup or easy supper, hosting groups often and with prayer as the focus...but out of that has come deep roots and a desire to continue to meet, encourage, edify, and pray for one another. I do believe that these efforts are more than worth it and it is also pleasing to God when we meet together to pray!
Thank you so much for your visit today. May you be blessed!
