For A Friend…

Have you ever had a friend going through one of life’s really rough spots and felt totally useless to help?  This is where I am at the moment so this is the card that just evolved as I was thinking about her…


The set is called An Open Heart and seemed just perfect for what needed to be said.  Should you find yourself in the spot as me, here are the Stuff ‘N Digits for you if you’d like to give this card a try…

This card isn’t going to rock my friend’s world, but it may just offer a little ray of sunshine and let her know others are thinking of her and holding her close to their hearts.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…”Worry is like a rocking chair.  It will give you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.”
