Hi All

I actually got to craft today and made this card:

This sentiment I have always loved as I think it sums up what we all need sometimes. I paired it with this stamp as a Lion just seemed the right image! Sentiment is from Verve and image Happy Little Stampers-both companies closed now but I still love to use their stamps.

As many of you know my Best Friend passed this year due to cancer and it is her Birthday next week and she is on my mind all the time. However it is her husband that this card is off to as I know it will be a hard week for him-his Birthday is a few days after.
I used to send Pheds (my best friend) cards to make her smile through all her tough times and now I like to send him cards every month at least to let him know I am still here for him too. As you all know a handmade card can mean all the difference. So he has another next week too for his Birthday-I sure hope they make him smile just a little!

Thanks to these 2 challenges for inspiring me to make this card:

AAA Cards-one small image and I went with the positivity twist
Just Us Girls-photo week-obviously went with the safari image and picked out the yellow in the photo



  1. That's an amazing quote Sandie and pairs up brilliantly with the lion image. I'm sure your friend's husband will really appreciate knowing he is being thought about. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards, hope to see you join in with future challenges too.

  2. Such a wonderful quote that is. So inapiring.And I am touched as always by your thoughtfulness Sandie 😘. You are a gem of a person.
    Lucky are the people who have you as their friend.
    Hugs to you

  3. Saw this on IG and it really stands out a a great design.

  4. Love this Sandie, perfect for our challenge. Thanks for joining us at AAA Cards.

  5. You are among the best class of friends, dear girl... you are bound to cause a few tears with this one, but I know he will appreciate those, too. I am so sorry for your loss. xx

  6. This sentiment is so special and so true!
    Great the combo with the yellow lion! Hugs, Gerrina

  7. One of my favourite quotes too, Sandie (you already know that) ... so perfect with the stately lion image. What a lovely way to keep Phed close to you ... and to support her DH ... he is sure to welcome and be comforted by the warmth and kindness you send in your cards each month. What a star you are! Big hugs, Anita :)

  8. So sorry you lost your best friend. I can't imagine losing mine! Your card is amazing and it's so nice that you still think of her hubby. I'm sure he treasures these cards. Beautiful card. Thanks for playing with Just Us Girls!
