Freshly Made Sketches: Pray Hope Trust
It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Judy.
A few weeks back we had circles on a sketch and I used bouquets of flowers. Last week we had circles and I totally stuck with circles. This week...more circles...I did one true circle and one circular doily!! (Close enough!!)
This card was a struggle. The sketch wasn't a problem and I adore the butterflies - but it had to be meaningful, yet for someone I really don't know. That's hard. It's a lady my husband works with and he thinks the world of her. I've met her once while I was visiting my husband. She and her husband have asked my husband and I to join them at their favorite brewery but we just haven't made it work. They seem very down-to-earth and I know they are outdoorsy. I also know they are Christians. I played with a variety of options but settled on butterflies as the mood I wanted.
Her husband just had a biopsy which did not show good results. They haven't even dealt with that yet because the biopsy caused a major infection. There are so many unknowns. The sentiment on this card has become my go-to in these situations. I have thousands of sentiments, but these three words usually say exactly what needs to be said - "pray hope trust".
I hopw to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!!
