Our challenge this week at Papercraft Star is "Umbrellas". Well it just happened to work out that I was creating a very special card for a very special lady and it had umbrellas all over it. :-)
If you've spent anytime playing challenges you probably recognize the name Jennifer Scull of Just Coffee.....& Stamps, & Ribbons, Paper. I was blessed to be able to call her team mate at A Day For Daisies for a while and to call her friend even longer. This sweet lady recently underwent surgery to remove a large tumor in her breast and is now undergoing chemo therapy. Even before her bout with cancer, she suffered from migraines, seizures, and tremors, but she's never complained, just trusted in God to help her deal with any and all of it. Her beautiful attitude and Christian spirit have been such a blessing to me. She's a real sweetheart and can count lots and lots of friends among our card making community. If you picked up that adorable Saturated Canary freebie Krista offered recently, you probably saw her name mentioned there and although she's not feeling up to crafting much lately, you can still find her name on the DT and administrative rosters for several challenge blogs. Regardless of whether you know her or not, I know she'd appreciate your prayers so keep her in your thoughts please. :-)
When we were on the ADFD DT together Jennifer used a lot of corrugated cardboard on her projects. I was always amazed at how she could work a piece in no matter what she was making. LOL This card is made with some of her trademark cardboard as well as some fun bright colors. Her cards are always cheerful and bright.
The sentiment on the front reads "You may be under a cloud now," and finishes on the inside of the card "but the Son is shining through you." Her Christian testimony has been so uplifting to me and I hope you can see it too. :-)
PCS blog and check out all the DT projects. Our wonderful Sylvia will have something awesome to show you using images from our sponsor, The House Across the Bay.
