Sweet 'n Sassy: Special Gift


This is my second post today.
It's just a short scroll down if you are
looking for Freshly Made Sketches.

This is a copy of my post for today over on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog.

I have had a sweet little girl on my mind today.  She is ALWAYS in my prayers as, at the age of 7, she has spent most of her life in and out of chemo.  She and her family are on our local newscasts today because one of the drugs that she needs for this round of chemo is part of the nationwide drug shortage that's been in the news lately.  This is an incredibly inspirational family - so full of faith - they are always a shining light in our church family.  My small contribution is to always make sure there are cards waiting for them after a chemo week.

That's a long explanation for this card because I had a very specific goal.  I wanted it very clean and "pure" - thus the white scenery.  And I wanted this girl and her kite to be vivid and cheerful!
Pin It

But most of all, I wanted to remind this sweet girl that she is a very, very special gift from God!!
