One Day at a Time Card

Good evening! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Mine went by way too quickly! The weekend was spent running errands and doing laundry. We did rent a couple of movies and I spent a little time in my craft room while my hubby was out mowing the lawn. All in all it was a pretty uneventful weekend.

This One Day at a Time Card was made for a family friend who recently lost her husband. I bought the sentiment stamp from Verve Stamps and I had her in mind when I made my purchase. Sometimes when we are faced with a tragedy it's the small things people do for us that make a difference. I'm hoping this card will bring a small smile during a difficult time. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

You may notice the clouds on the image panel are a little sparse... well here in Oklahoma clouds are rare in summer so, I kept the sky mostly blue.

My One Day at a Time Card is entered into the following challenges:
