Precious Tears

Firstly, allow me to humbly offer thanks to every sweet precious blogaroonie friend who missed my face during the last few weeks as we prodded through life! My fingers have been busy since my brother-in-law's funeral, both here and at work as I finished off the biggest conference that I do for my job, just last week. O-V-E-R has a nice ring to it! It's timely that I've been blessed to get to know a widow lady over the Summer Scripture Challenge, who is learning more about tears this year than she ever wanted to know! Tears come to her as a period comes to the end of a sentence. It's her birthday, so I made her this set of cards entitled "Precious Tears", each one signifying something different.
Computer generated sentiments: Tears of Sorrow - Tears of Love - Tears of Laughter - Tears of Joy. I enjoyed this paper from the Wild Raspberry collection of K&Company. Makes a dang cute picnic basket from PTI's Vintage Picnic set!

This was my ever-loving first use of the Spellbinders Labels Two Nesties - oh be still my beating heart! Great size and I love the edgy design! I used a Fiskars scallop punch and some cream satin ribbon to finish things off. Bottom edge of card is randomly stamped with versamark.

Might be a little deceiving in the picture, but the set of cards fit nicely in one of PTI's Clearly Creative Card Boxes, which I decorated to match the cards. Tears have a mind of their own. So unexplainable at times. They might even take all the energy you have. The river runs deep. Only YOU know what is deserving of your precious tears. God bless you today and any day that you might have a wet face!
