Wednesday Madness with a little faith

Wow!  I thought the last few weeks before school starts were going to be pretty relaxing but things are heating up!  I am going at full speed it seems and I am ready for a nap!  The best thing happened to me yesterday.  I had a doctor's appointment that was not the best because I have to go get some more tests completed before I elect to have the minor surgery I have put off for years.  So I decided to head to a nearby shopping center and take a gander at some new items to take my mind off the impeding doom I will face next week.  As I was walking up to the store, I saw a former student of mine with her mother.  It was  the greatest relief to see them and discover how things were going for them the last few months since school ended.  While talking with them, another student and his mother came out of the store so it was like a mini reunion!  What a blessing it was to me as I was feeling a bit sad.  I walked away thinking how quickly life changes and tickled that I was able to be a part off these people's lives.  What a glorious honor and the memories I have will always stay with me and keep me smiling.  It changed my whole outlook from doom and gloom to pure happiness.  As I type this, I am smiling because I do believe it was God's way of showing me everything will be alright.
Now let's head full speed into today's card! 
This week, DD's friend is turning 15.  She loves animals so I made this cute little card for her to celebrate her special day. 
My daughter really enjoys hanging out with her which is saying a lot since she is Autistic.  Her friend is also on the spectrum and she enjoys getting together with Jacquelynn to see plays, musicals, movies, eat dinner, etc.  I was so worried she would never reach this level of friendship.  In fact, next week I am taking both girls to the beach for a few days!  It's going to be such a hoot to see them together!  Another shining light I am so grateful for. 
This week Crafty Creations has a red, orange, and green theme.  Our sponsor, 2 Cute Rubber Stamps gave us images to create with I went for the rabbit because her friend loves to accessorize and she has a bow, flower, and heart.  I started by coloring her in with orange shades of copics and then hitting the bow, heart, and flower with reds.  I used warm greys to shade in the image, then cut out and placed on orange polka dot scrap paper with foam dots.  The papers are Imaginesce (red polka dot and floral), Sass Lass(green stripe), and October Afternoon (orange polka dot). I tied some orange twine around and tied with a button.  The sentiment is a SRM Sticker.  I keep forgetting I have these so when I pull them out, I go a little crazy using them.  It seems like my cards have all had a SRM Sticker on them lately.  More to come too!  :-) Hope you will join us for the challenge!
