Heavenly Peace

Not everyone will have a "merry and bright" holiday season. Some have lost loved ones, some are struggling with depression or illness, some are worried about their kids or their parents, some are struggling financially, and still others are just overwhelmed and stressed out. Somehow it doesn't quite seem appropriate to send these friends a card that says "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays."

I wanted to create a special set of cards to send to some of them, to let them know I care and am praying for God's comfort and peace to be with them.

 I used Diane Noble's Heavenly Peace digital set to create my cards because I love both the peacefully sweet image and the hope-filled sentiment. 

 All of the printed papers are also from the Heavenly Peace set. The Lined Paper and Graph paper are part of a digital paper set from Etsy. 

I used the Dotted Oval dies from Sizzix to cut out the sentiments and the circles were cut with Stitched Circles 2 Die Set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

   I used the same image and sentiment on each card, but switched up the papers and layouts so that each one just a little different than the rest.

 I hope these cards bring some comfort to the recipients.
