Whispering a prayer

Before I show you the cards I made for today, I'd like to ask you to whisper a prayer for my friend, Vicky Gould. Vicky's husband was hospitalized last night to prepare for some minor cardiac surgery, when he had pacemaker trouble and suddenly, unexpectedly passed away. Please pray for her, for that peace which surpasses all understanding, and for strength for the days to come. I suspect that right now she is just numb, but as the reality begins to sink in, she will need our prayers and support. I believe that prayers really do make a huge difference. Isn't it great that even though we have never met in person, our SCS family pulls together to bring comfort when someone needs it.

The challenge today was to use plaid designer paper. I have had this green plaid paper for at least two years...I was saving it for a scrapbook page, but decided it was time to cut into it. I used yesterday's sketch with this cute Fluffles, and found the perfect prima to go with it (thanks to Faith!).

Stamps: Fluffles
Paper: SU! Whisper White, Summer Sun, Close to Cocoa; greens of unknown origin, DP of unknown origin
Inks: Black Stazon
Accessories: Markers, prima, button, paper piercer, coluzzle, Cuttlebug, hemp

I tried to squeeze in another card before heading out to choir practice (my son and I are in a musical, and the first performance is 10 days away), but should have known better because usually stamping in a rush just doesn't work for me. I decided that I would just post it this is for Leah's 2nd Freaky Friday challenge, to use a Halloween stamp to make a non-Halloween card. More plaid paper too, along with lots of glitter and stickles.

Stamps: Inkadinkadoo All Hallow's Eve
Paper: SU! Whisper White, Plaid dp from Michael's, unknown purple
Inks: Craft White, Craft Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Martha Steward glitter, Stickles, Fibers, Primas and jewels, SU! circle punches, computer-generated sentiment

Thanks for coming to taking a look!
