The 'Circle of Life' is something we all experience . . . in the birth of a newborn to the death of someone we care about. That's just the process of how God made it. Joy, at A Place To Be Me, sent out a post the other day. A dear friend of hers had passed away and was asking if anyone wanted to make a handmade card for the family. ~ Go over to her site to see the details ~ I had to make one for the family because a good friend of mine emailed me about a week before to specifically pray for "Susan". Can you believe how small this world is? Not knowing "Susan", I prayed for healing and recovery, but the Lord had other plans. Then my focus became praying for the family especially the children she left behind. Here is a card that I made for the family . . . very simple.
I added a mini circle accordian album on the front of the card. If you pull the album one way, it reads, "You're In Our Prayers" & if you pull the album the other way, it reads, "With Heartfelt Sympathy Kawelo Family". I didn't take a picture of the inside, sorry. Keep the family in prayer too, as this is a difficult time.
Well, the Baby Shower is over and we all had a blast! No card to share here, but wanted to share how I made the Parents-To-Be cake or should I say, cupcakes. Take a look . . . no laughing please ;o)
I get inspired when I watch Cake Boss, Ultimate Cake Challenge, or Ace of Cakes. I wish I had that kind of talent to build a cake. Unfortunately, I don't! My last cake that I made was a disaster. So, instead of baking a cake for the shower, I made cupcakes. Who can go wrong with cupcakes? I baked red velvet cupcakes & topped it off with Butter Cream Frosting. Added some strinkles and voila! I printed a picture of Shelley & one of Will to top the cupcake. I then used my Cricut to cut the baby image. This is how it came out! Nothing fancy . . . simple!
Today is rest day for me and the family since we had such a busy weekend. Looking forward to JOURNEYING through this week. The madness never ends! That's part of the 'Circle of Life'.
