Yesterday, as I was talking about God’s miracle work in a precious new life, I got word of a life taken. A friend that lost his wife to cancer a few years ago lost his second wife suddenly and expectantly. They had only been married a little over a year. They are still young – my age or so. Such a tragedy for him and their blended family. But, you know something…God is in control of this situation too. Not as easy to see yet, but He’s there, nonetheless!
And, after the news this morning… I am so thankful for the little things that God provides us every day – like the daisy flowers in the field! So, here is a little Thank You card back to God for being so present in the every day!
Okay – so it really isn’t a card, but instead, it’s a pop-up hexagon box. I didn’t make this one to fit into an envelope because I think it will just sit on my shelf until I find someone to give it too. I used Mitosu Crafts’ video to help me build this. Of course, I made a few modifications… and one error. It’s one I always make building these boxes! (I put the mechanism on the top instead of the bottom – if you were wondering!) I really ought to have learned by now. What Jay does with a little paper and glue is phenomenal! You really should Google him!
This card uses items from the Delightful Daisy Suite. I can tell I am going to love this one… so, it will be making plenty appearances here! I have used the Daisy Delight stamp set to stamp the daisies and sentiment. On the outside is small pieces of one of the papers in the Delightfully Daisy Designer Series Paper. And, the best thing… those flowers were all punched using the new Daisy Punch. Isn’t it lovely!
Bet you can’t wait to get your hands on that new catalog! You will love it once you see it!!! Just drop me an email and I will get it off to you in a jiffy!
Until next time… keep it simple, Stampers!
