Heartfelt Creations Wednesday

It is time for another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday and today I created a get well card.  Love the fact that the bird house can be die cut with the matching die and added with pop dots to give a 3-D effect.  You will find the complete supply list and directions below.

An update on my friend Lizzie.  We have made it through one week of chemo and radiation with no side effects (yet).  We're being optimistic that this will continue.  Thank you so much for all your prayers!  We have 4 more weeks to go.  
Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!

In Loving Memory of Lisa Lynne Wright

The Heartfelt Creations Design Team, friends and other members of the stamping community are sharing cards today to create a Memory Chain to remember Lisa Lynne Wright, who passed away unexpectedly last week.

 Even though I only met Lisa Lynne recently through the Heartfelt Creations DT, I quickly learned how caring and talented she was.  She was always one of the first to comment and encourage us on our projects. It is always difficult to describe the friendships we create on-line but she had become a wonderful friend and it was with shock and great sadness that I learned of her passing.  I have created this card in her honor.

The rose is a Heartfelt Creations stamp, the sentiment was printed from the computer.  

Thank you so much for joining us on this blog hop to remember Lisa Lynn and to let her family know how much she will be missed by all of us whose lives she touched and influenced.
