Visiting Rebecca Today

I will be visiting Rebecca today.  Her mom is a dear friend of mine, and she has asked me to come by the hospital for a visit.  I am bringing her a favorite treat - an XXL iced Dr. Pepper.  I can't even imagine the stress she is experiencing.  And yet, she has seen God's hand of protection over Rebecca.  My heart is both heavy and grateful (that she is still alive and hanging in there).

I saw this sketch last night at Sweet Sketch Wednesday's Blog and made this little card.  I also wanted to enter something Tree-Mendous in the challenge at Cute Card Thursday.  This card just happened to also fit the challenge at Stamping With the Dragon's Blog.  Here is the card.

These are the challenges, and I hope you will check them out - they're a lot of fun:

http://stampingwithdragon.blogspot.com/2011/10/buttons-and-bows.html - Buttons & Bows

Again, thank you so much for praying for Rebecca.  She is still heavily sedated, and doesn't know yet how severe her injuries are (or the fact that she is paralyzed), but she is doing well.  Please let me know if you wish to send her a card.

Thanks for stopping by my little blog to take a peek.  Have a blessed day.

  9. This is really stunning Karen, how gorgeous. Thank you for your lovely comment today. You are very kind. Send Rebecca my best wishes and tell her I am thinking about her. Life has certainly been a big change for me but Im very lucky to have an incredible husband and family which has made adjusting to a life with disability much easier. Your card is really gorgeous, I love the papers. Lee x
