The Lord Is My Strength

Last night I learned of the passing of two dear ladies, one elderly with dementia and other ailments and the other who left this world much too young. Both will be greatly missed by those who love them!

I needed to remember that the Lord is my strength and my song, so I pulled out one of my yet-to-be-inked stamps and created this card...




I went with a very simplistic and soothing look on this card.




Here's the inside:




This is my 13th card for the 100 Cards in 100 Days Challenge.







Scripture Stamp: Unity My Strength and Song
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Cardstock: Recollections Black
All Other Papers: Scraps from my scrap file
Embellishments: Michael's Rhinestones

Oh Jeanette - it is always sad for us to hear of the passing of others, but they will be free, and singing with you now, and for one, never forgetting the words again!
Love your card - it is so gracious.
Blessings
