Blog Candy for a Cause

Blog Candy for Francesca

Hi everyone,
I would like to ask you for your thoughts and prayers for this little one that is in the NICU right now. The lady that owns this blog is friends with the family and they could use some RAK's (Random Acts of Kindness) right now. This blog candy is being offered in exchange for prayers and if you can mail the family a card as well. Lets lift our prayers up for Francesca and her family that she might be healed and be able to go home.

God Bless,
Monique

Prayers Needed

Thank you to all who read my blog. I haven't been posting because my father in law has been very ill and to our demise he passed away to be with our Lord this evening around 6:30pm. So please forgive me but I won't be able to post anything new for a little bit. I would appreciate your thoughts and prayers at this very difficult time. He was a very kind man and I won't ever forget him, he was like a father to me as I didn't have one.

Thanks,
Monique

Another Kitty!




This image was sent by my secret sister so I don't know who makes it. Pictured is the inside and outside of the card. I made a little pocket inside for some card candy! Isn't it cute? You can not really tell but I used stickles on the glasses. I used a Cuttlebug folder for the background and some floss to keep the folder attached to the card.
