I made several of these cards.  I have several people I could learn from regarding strength. Hunter continues to progress.  He no longer has extra oxygen going into his trachea and sits up without assistance.  A good friend is going through her third series of chemo.   She takes yoga, walks everyday, cooks for her husband daily, 82 in age and thanks God each day she is given.  A family member has a brain tumor....this mountain of strength is working till the day before her surgery and will be headed to the MidEast 4 weeks after her recuperating time. Yup, these are just some of the amazing people I know.

I fell in love with card making upon discovering a House Mouse stamp at Hobby Lobby 6 years ago.  I STILL love love love the house mouse characters. The image stamp is called Heavy Lifter. The word stamp is called Your Strength found on the same page.  (I kept the card somewhat simple since I was sending one of these cards to Hunter and didn't want it too girly...haha)

    Gorgeous coloring! That apple looks good enough to eat! It is amazing the strength and courage that people have inside them! Best wishes to all that are ailing, and a hope for speedy recovery to them, too!
