Tonight was card class. Our card class friend had six cards ready for us to make. She won't take any money for them. She designs them, buys all the supplies, pre-makes part of them, and then welcomes us into her home for as long as we want to stay. She is amazing.
Here are my favorites. This one is made like a quilt, all the colored pieces are different bits of scrapbook papers. We pieced them together on the back and then turned it over to see how it looked.
This one folds open, the first heart says, "Love," and the second one says, "You." There is room for a personal message under the 2nd heart.
The "candle" on this cupcake pulls up to read, "You take the cake."The white part on this one is embossed and a little gold heart hangs from the "E."
One of the women who comes to card class couldn't come tonight. She is home with a bad cough and is trying to get well so she can go to Oregon for her grandchild's baptism. She sent fabulous chocolate waffle cookies for everyone there! This woman is the Primary President in our ward which means she is in charge of all the children, age three to twelve for two hours every Sunday. It is a huge calling and she is always smiling. How does she manage that job with such grace? I have been in a Primary Presidency as a counselor and I can tell you it was a huge job and I was just a counselor.
Two extraordinary women--women who go the extra mile and even a whole lot more. I am privileged to have them as friends.
