Lookie what I got!

Hey there Bleeps!
Sorry I've been MIA lately. My younger brother has type 2 diabetes and is only 32 yrs old. He was in ICU because he wasn't taking care of himself like he should!!! He is out now and is doing much better....but it was touch and go for awhile because his kidneys were trying to shut down! Please keep him in your prayers as he still has a long road to haul....and he really needs to take his diabetes seriously and take care of himself better!!!

I received this gorgeous card in the mail Friday from Karrie O. Isn't it beautiful? I just love it. It's really so much better in person, what can I say? I have a crappy camera or I guess it's my crappy photography skills, LOL. I really love her sponging which gives it such a soft look....don't you think? She used the stamp set Just Believe from Stampin' Up!.....now I really need this stamp set after seeing her lovely card, LOL!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Happy to hear your brother is getting better Holley. I'll say a prayer for you all.

This card is lovely. I like the colors she sued and I agree her sponging is great.

Oy, here's wishing your brother a speedy recovery and healthy vibes moving forward. Lucky you for receiving that beautiful card! I LOVE the Just Believe set! It's been on my wish list from the moment I first laid eyes on it. Soon, it will be mine.... ;-)

Sending prayers for your brother. I hope he sees why it is so important to take care of diabetes. I know it must be tough to make yourself eat right. Your card is beautiful too!

You may notice that I also used the Sweet Summer stamps (the bee, butterfly and flower stamped on the flowers) That set was my FREEBIE from the Sale-a-bration promo! Love those FREEBIES!! Thank you again!! Have a SWEET day!! Glad your brother is doing much better!!
