Blue and Green

Hope you had a lovely weekend. It has cooled down a bit here, but the temps will go up again. Tomorrow I start my third session Chemo. I am half way to the finish line and in September my hair should start growing again, I can't wait! It has been too hot to organize myself to take photos of the cards I received, there are so many I don't know where to start! Thank you to everybody who thinks of me!

Just recently a Dutch Christian friend sent me these words:

Difficult moments . . seek God
Quiet moments . . worship God
Painful moments . . trust God
Every moment . . thank God

have a little share today, quick and simple - I can't get my head around difficult cards for a while. What I did which is something I hadn't thought of before. I stamped the bottom half of the stamp and then left a gap and stamped the top half of the stamp. In that gap I placed the sentiment. I'm sure there are many stamps that lean towards this little trick, to use your stamps in different ways. I still want to get the maximum out of them!


  1. As always, just lovely, my favorite colors, too! I'll have you in my prayers tomorrow, my friend. And thanks for sharing that little quote - it will surely be something to remember during difficult times. Sending hugs!

  2. Beautiful cards do not have to be complicated Jacqueline, it's a lovely card! Blessings for tomorrow, I'll keep you in my thoughts, take care, hugs, Ira x
