When I first saw this image at its release...I burst into tears. It's literally a picture from my memories about 14 years ago.

I used the following fall colors as a starting point~

Courage & Health




Dawn McVey
is a Papertrey Ink staple! 

 I mean, I don't know PTI before Dawn.

She's been going through some courageous things, and PTI is dedicating a hop to her.

This card has added wrapped twine...inspired by 

Make It Monday #302: Twine & Ribbon Wraps 
 hosted by Stephanie


I'm praying for her continued health and perseverance~as I'm hoping you will also~




He Knows Your Need



We've been soooo busy, as I'm sure you've been also!

This card needed to be created and sent...like, weeks ago. 

Pain doesn't have a timeline, and I know a late card is better than never.
