Thoughts & Prayers

Sad happenings seem to be abundant amongst our friends in this early part of the new year, so recently I've been making quite a few "praying for you" cards.  I would much rather be crafting for happy reasons, but I hope that my creations and notes will bring some small measure of comfort to those who are hurting & who are so dear to us.

A get well card for my son's beloved teacher, who is recovering from a heart attack:
