Treasured Moments

Welcome to the Sunday morning upload for Stampin Sisters in Christ. I read one verse further then stated on the website and it says "Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything." Oh what a wonderful point of knowledge "The Lord will give ME understanding in everything!" Isn't that amazing? The challenge this week was to make a Father's Day card or a masculine card. Well, the card that I made is masculine and is for my dear dad. Dad takes care of my mom every minute of every day! He is amazing. I know it hurts him to see my mother failing and I also know that God is with him because he loves to tell me when she had a good day. It is in my nature to ask why - God  - why, yet I have never heard my dad say those words about mom. He truly treasures every moment that they  have together. So this card is for him - my dad. 

I used a stamp set called Timeless Treasures by Theresa Momber and sold by GinaK. The designer paper is from Basic Grey called Porcelain and the solid paper was Fresh Asparagus also from GinaK. I used some Chrystal Effects on the face of the pocket watch and a couple of brads. 

Have a great week and remember to treasure the moments - I try to!

What a perfect card for your dear Dad who loves your Mom and considers caring for her his privileged! I'm sure it's not easy but God does give extra measures of grace as needed to get through these tough times! Sounds like your Dad is full of God's grace right now! He'll treasure this card and the moments it took you to make it for him too! Have a wonderful week!

That is a great reminder to hold onto and remember those treasured moments, you are so right! And what a great Dad God has given you, a treasure beyond measuring. This is a lovely card and I'm sure will be much appreciated.
