DCM little extra

For this weeks little Extra at
We have a Themed Little Extra this week. A little encouragement to make those cards you usually have to make in a hurry - see how we like to help you?
So this time we'd like you to make "Get Well Soon" type cards. That's it - nothing too tricky or complicated this week, just a little nudge in the "Be Prepared" direction.
Well with my take on this weeks little extra I did have a great plan for a fun get well card, but I'll hang onto that card for another time....
This is a special card for someone I know that has a terminal illness,
so instead of a 'get well soon' card,
it's more of a 'to comfort you in your illness' card.
Sometimes when it comes to card making you have to follow what
you feel lead to create, and this is just such a card!....
bits I've used to make this card are - Cardstock, PP - unknown, Making Memories circle Frame, Making Memories Ribbon, Safety Pin & jumpring,heart charm, strip journaling computer generated, and the lace flower & brad left overs from my
So have you Dared to DARE yet?....... COME ON I DARE YOU!!!!!

Gillian, what a beautiful card. It's perfect. It is so encouraging and scripture is so powerful.

I have a question for you - a friend of mine has asked me to help her make a birthday card for her 100 year old Great Uncle who loves ballroom dancing and the great outdoors. Do you have any suggestions? I thought of you immediately because of your love of vintage cards...this man is English (he is still living in England)Any suggestions will be gratefully received! Thank you for thinking about it!
