SFYTT dedicated to Susan and Eric...

Today, the SFYTT team is dedicating our posts and cards to Susan and her husband Eric. Eric has been diagnosed with an as of yet unknown form of cancer. You can see all the details about it here on her blog if you haven't already heard. We want Susan and Eric to know we are praying for them and a miraculous turn of events and that his chemo does the job.

Here is this weeks' sketch:
And here's my card (sending this one to Susan and Eric!)
The main image is a stamp from Verve. It's a beautiful set of two stamps titled "Jeremiah 29:11" I know it's easier to say than it is to believe when you're going through a rough patch, but I really do believe that God has a plan for everyone and he will never give us more than we can handle and this verse sums that up so well. The paper is by Sassafrass Lass. I cut it out with a Spellbinders die and added some turquoise pearls for filler, lol! The Lemon Tart ribbon is by PTI. See that little rose on the bow? OMG I am SO in love with these! They're by Prima and they are SO WONDERFUL! They come on a piece of green wire that you can wrap around things and it makes the roses stay put w/out any glue! I'm about to go buy stock in these babies, lol!

Stop by the other ladies blogs to see what they came up with!

Thanks for stopping by today! In case you've noticed and are peeved by it, I had to add word verification to my blog again:( I get at least 3-5 spam emails a post and that is really annoying to me, and I'd hate one of my visitors to click on one and get something nasty, so I had to turn the WV back on. Sorry about that, I hope it doesn't keep you from leaving me some love, I love it when you visit me!
**Edited to add the right sketch, I had the wrong one up, SORRY!**

Maureen said...

this is so beautiful and inspiring, Amber...I love this sentiment and Susan and Eric are sure to love it too. The ribbon treatment is gorgeous...yellow is the perfect colour for this soft and serene and full of hope :)

Very nice, Amber. We used the same little flower too. Our creative minds must have been buzzing on the same wavelength this week!
