Courage and Healing
Lately life has been a bit overwhelming, and I have not had much time to create. I am always happier and more content when I can spend time feeding my creative soul. This one is a 3-fer. Last week's OCC challenge was to add a doodle to your project. My doodles are on the top panel. I used the colors from SCS CC208 (Pink Passion, Kiwi Kiss and Chocolate Chip), and the layout from SC218.
Stamps: Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps~Support the Girls
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Pink Passion, Raspberry Tart DSP, White
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pink Passion, Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: Dew Drops, Markers, Dimensionals, MS Lace Border Punch, Mat Pack and Piercing Tool
The inside has a beautiful blessing by Joyce Rupp that reads:
May you desire to be healed.
May what is wounded in your life be restored to good health.
May you be receptive to the ways in which healing needs to happen.
May you take good care of yourself.
May you extend compassion to all that hurts within your body, mind, spirit.
May you be patient with the time it takes to heal.
May the skills of all those who are caring for you be used to the best of their ability in returning you to good health.
May you be open to receive from those who extend kindness, care and compassion to you. May you rest peacefully under the wings of divine love, trusting in this gracious presence.
May you find little moments of you to sustain you. May you keep hope in your heart.
