For Rick

Howdy Crafters - I so love my balloon stamps from QKR Stampede - it has been awhile since I created a card using one of my balloon stamps.

I am giving this card to my sweet husband who is going through a journey with stage 3 cancer.  Although my heart is broken, I will Praise God through this Storm.

A Christian Song I have been listening to this week that has given me encourage through my Christian walk as husband's caregiver ~ the inspiring song is by Mercy Me called "Even If"  - Click Here to Listen and view the words on screen.

The sentiment inside this card is also a rubber stamp by QKR - I like the chuckle it provides to both of us
during this journey on Earth. Laughter is a good medicine ~ there is Always HOPE. Thank you Jesus.

Thank you Crafters for stopping by ~ have a blessed day - Always a blessing to have you visit my blog and for me to enter challenges. ~ Gail ~
