Bright and Cheery

I have a very special friend named Noni.  I know I've mentioned her before, at least once back when I made a pocket card with all her kids' names tucked inside.  Well, I've been thinking about her a lot lately, and so I decided to make and send her this card.  She is the best example I have ever met of the virtuous woman described in Proverbs 31.  If you haven't read this Proverb lately, I encourage you to get it out, read and study it, and ask yourself how your life is measuring up to become that virtuous woman.  It's such a blessing to have an example in our lives to help encourage us to live our lives the way God has designed for us, and to realize that we CAN become all that God desires of us.  This card was already sent out to Noni.
I made this card using the "I'm In Stitches" stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers -a Heinrich Co. and also used some JilliBean Soup patterned papers, a Pink Paislee wooden spool button, scrunched seam binding, and washi tape by Freckled Fawn.  This is my Hostess project for the Sketch With a Twist Challenge on Speedy TV.  You can sign up to play along by clicking on this link:  Sketch With a Twist - Speedy TV  -  It's FREE and easy to sign up, and it gives you access to all the challenges on the blog.  I hope you will join us.
I'm entering Noni's little friendship card in the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you're having a blessed week.
