Stampin' Up! Touches of Texture

Happy Wednesday peeps! Today was hubby's chemo day and his last day of radiation. We are thankful that his pain doctor discovered the cause of his pain 3 weeks ago, when no other doctors had a clue. He was friends with our radiation oncologist and got treament going so Perry is able to walk now with a walker and the wheelchair is no longer needed. Our doctor has his own pain now. He has been arrested for fraud and medical kick backs. He has admitted his guilt. That saddens me so and I can only pray that his stay in a federal prison will change his life for the better. So I sought a Christian based challenge for today...there are several out there. I chose Word Art Wednesday Weeks #336 - #337 Anything Goes

I wanted to build up my stash of sympathy cards and I watched Linda Cullen make one that I just had to CASE (copy and share everything in some stampers' speak).

I liked it so much I made a second one and CASE'd my own!

For the inside I copied the word art from the challenge I entered. 

This is a very easy card to make and I will be demonstrating it tomorrow at our card group. Measurements and products used are below. Thank you so much for stopping by. Be sure to stop by tomorrow as it is our Thursday blog hop! AND if you are a praying type of person, can you throw in a few for Dr. Frey. I may have to start a prison ministry! I never dreamed this would affect me so much and we had only met with him three times.
