Importance of Friends of Faith!
During this Holiday season I have been so blessed by the love of friends and family! As I take my journey through life, I realize more each day, the super importance of friends of faith! They seem to have this built in radar to contact me and encourage me at just the right time of my need! I had met two ladies from Africa three years ago, they were stranded at a store and the elderly mother was too weak to walk any further. Her daughter was trying to console her and they both looked so lost and scared. I saw them sitting on a bench outside of the store when I went in and they were still there when I came back out. So, I went over and spoke to them and asked them if I could help by giving them a ride somewhere. They both said together Thank you Lord! That was where our journey of friendship began. I took them to eat and we visited and shared about our lives and families and we became instant friends! They were staying with relatives in the area and I often went and got them took them shopping, to the doctor, or to just have some time visiting. Every time they would get into my car, we would all hold hands. and they would pray for me and mine and thank the Lord for us meeting that very first day outside of the store! The daughter has since gotten her nursing license and I am able to say that I was some help in that! She has since moved to Florida and I had not heard form her in almost a year. Then yesterday my phone rang with a number I did not recognize, and it was her cherry voice, with her beautiful accent and she said Hello my friend and sister in Christ! We had a wonderful conversation and she said she wanted to again thank me for stopping to help them and not walk away like so many others, that had just passed them by. She thanked me for all of my goodness and kindness and we both again claimed that the Lord had given us the gift of love and friendship to have for a lifetime. We visited and caught up on each others families and she as always encouraged me to continue to help others. That is what I am passing this story on to all of you that read my blog. I am sending cards today to many friends and family that I have not heard from in ages! And hoping to share some love and encouragement. Everyday we all pass by someone that needs a smile and a gesture of love and encouragement! So, this is your assignment if you accept it! Make about five pretty cards with a friendly greeting on them and carry them in your purse over then next few week. When you go to the grocery store, doctor , work wherever make it a point to stop and give your greeting card to someone and wish them well! I have my business card inside mine and I will tell them to contact me and we can become email buddies. The we can share our love of our card making craft, and the love others all at the same time! Let then share on my blog the stories of goodness and friendship that comes your way! Send me your address and I will send you my friendship of faith card in the mail! Hugs to all ! Enjoy my cards!

This card is made with one of my favorite stamps, it reminds me of Rusty's mother as she loved humming birds! Great card to share with new friends!
I used a dry embossing folder for this card and then added the sentiment and bling to it. The ribbon was stitched in white and it is from stamping up. I have many beautiful ribbons and stamp supplies contact me and I will order what you want and send it to you! 979-255-0377
