Dream to Be - Fabulous Feature and Hope for a Friend


In our new tradition, the {ippity} chicks are featuring inspiration for a stamp set each week.  This week, the set is from a recent release (June).  It's a great set with so many usages.  Be sure to check out all the inspiration available this week on the ippity blog.

I chose to make mine uplifting and hopeful, which conjures up all sorts of things...especially this time of year.  From new high school graduates and students returning to college all making plans for the future to others reflecting on the summer and wishful of it's soon return.

To the simplest thoughts as simply making progress and hope for the courage and strength to pursue a dream or progress.




Which leads me what making this card is REALLY about.  It's bit just about a stamp set.  It's about courage and strength.

And My Dear Friend.

Who could truly use a lot of strength and hope right now.  Collective strength and hope.

If you remember my friend that was in the terrible motorcycle accident last year, she is still very much in the midst of recovery.  She has been steadily improving over the year and is now approaching the one year mark where she was told that nerve damage repair plateaus.  Because of this milestone, she has been praying, hoping, and watching closely those part of her body where the nerve damage is severe and constantly painful.

She remains hopeful, believing she can be that one outlier on the statistics that quantify the one year mark.

But there was one bit of information that knocked the wind from her a bit. She was informed on a recent visit to the Wilmer Eye Institute that eye nerve damage doesn't repair.  And she has quite extensive eye injuries.  Such disheartening news.

This is a card to let her know that her dear friends are still cheering for her.  Because we know from watching the series of miracles that have blessed her life, this is yet a minor set back.

Joanne, my dear friend, I love you and admire the strength you have kept as your body puts itself back together!

This is a beautiful card and I'm sure your friend will appreciate it. I pray God will give her the peace that she needs, but in the end we all know there is nothing impossible for him. So healing is still a possibility with prayer, hope and understanding that his will be done. Thanks for sharing!

Many blessings,

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice
