WOW, two today! Look out world, and a prayer request!!

Okay I know I'm a little out of my norm by making two cards in one day...but I wanted to stamp and the Ways to Use it challenge wasn't posted yet (since I'm 7 hours ahead of east coast time).
-So I did a sketch challenge, then the kids were napping and the Ways to use it 267 challenge on SCS was posted, so I stamped!
-Plus, I was over at MelStampz and she has some super fun FREE images that were "sew" cute that I just HAD to make a card with them! See THIS post!
-And last but certainly NOT least, there was an inspiration challenge #46 over at Tree House Stamps that was super inspirational!

Here is my card! What do you think? I love the colors and how this image was already pre-cool for me to make something with...for the background I used some scraps of DP and adhered them to white and then ran them through the printer again with another FREE background paper from Mels blog, then I stitched it with my Janome Sew mini machine...I love that thing! Colored it with my watercolor crayons and then added a sentiment.

This is going to a friend of mine that was just diagnosed with a brain tumor, it's a pretty large one and one that is not easily treated, so I just ask that you keep her in your prayers, her name is Danielle, she's only 37 and I just pray that even if I am so far away I can be there for her in spirit and prayer! This will be a journey for her and her husband...I pray for them!

Thanks again for looking! I appreciate your visits and your comments, you truly fuel my creativity!

Hugs and Happy Stampin'

P.s. on a completely different note, your card rocks my socks off. The bright colours (and the genius way you printed & stitched the paper pieced background!) Too clever. Your friend is sure to love it.
