Heaven Sent

Heaven Sent - the lady who was my contact in the building process of my new home is about to adopt a baby boy and this card is for her. She is so excited and some of you know that my oldest is adopted, so as you can see, I am a big supporter of adoption. Mandi is going to make a great mother and I am excited for her.

My DP is Nana's baby boy by Paper Petals. Distressed with Ranger's Broken China. The image is Sew Many Cards "Jaden looking at Butterfly." The challenge this week at Sew Many Challenges is Easel Cards. They are fun and very simple to do, but leave a big impact.

I hope all of you will try an easel card and join us at the challenge at Sew Many Challenges. You don't have to use a Sew Many Cards image, but we really like it when you do. Also Angela, the owner and artist, is trying to raise funds to take her son to the Mayo Clinic and all sales will help her to take him. You can read Stryder's store here. I colored the image with Copic's. The ribbon is American Crafts. The hat pin I made with some corsage pins and beads by Bead Treasures. It was simple to do and I love the results.

The flowers by Petaloo.
