Friday Try-Day Cards and Projects

Last month our Friday Try-Day project was a Card Box ensemble to hold cards for all occasions.
It is nice to have an organized place for all of the cards we create as we are learning all of the new techniques we try out, and those great designs we CASE from Pinterest!  LOL

Today I am sharing one of our Friday Try-Day cards from April, which was waiting in the box for a time, sadly, when it would be needed to cheer someone in need.
"Just a Little Prayer"
The inside sentiment says "That God will keep you in His care".
That seems appropriate for the 
I FEEL THE LOVE PROJECT for this month.
This blog, and the work they do is very precious to me. 
Madison, the teenage founder of this Non-profit organization is a talented
young woman with a giant heart.  Since she was 16 years old she has chosen a different family
 each month that could benefit
 from receiving handmade cards. 
This month's story is of a 6 month old angel named 
Baby Mason
who was born with special needs,
and then tragically died at the hands of a drunk driver. 
My card will be delivered to his grieving parents.
I hope you will take a moment to check out this website, and 
perhaps join in sending a card...
There is a new mission every month.  

The lace stamp set as well as the sentiments are available from Close To My Heart.
The lace was heat embossed in white onto pale gray cardstock,
then distressed with Sapphire Blue ink over the top.  Use a paper towel
to buff the image and bring the white back to brilliance.
The butterfly was cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, also from CTMH. 
The pearl brads are from Making Memories.
Mat with black, and mount on a blue card.
Line with another gray insert with the sentiment stamped in blue.

I hope you are inspired to do something creative today.

Happy crafting ~
