Linda's Special Day

Yesterday I went out to lunch with Linda who celebrated her birthday last week.  Linda is the wife of Pastor Jon who went home to be with the Lord in July.  Jon and Linda were inseparable and did ministry side by side for years so being without him has been a major adjustment for her and her family.  

I was glad my friend Kristy and I were able to meet her at Kahala mall and take her to lunch to bless her on her special day.  Linda is a very kind and loving person who loves Jesus with all of her heart and is finding strength in Him each day to carry on.

Since I have been preparing for my weekend Holiday Catalog Stamp A Stack class and upcoming Holiday Stamp Camp, I have been stamping almost exclusively with our Holiday catalog stamps.  I decided to use a stamp from Here's to Cheer's to highlight a cake I stamped from the Build A Birthday stamp set that is featured in our regular catalog.

The color combination on this card is Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry.  I didn't feel the need to add any texture because the card was so colorful with the different cake layers I stamped.  I used my favorite mini flower from the Tree Builder Punch to add some jeweled flower embellishments.

We had a wonderful lunch together and I hope that its something we can do more often.

 It is wonderful to be an encouragement and support to those whom God blesses your life with.  Its important to take time to let others know how loved they are and I hope that is how Linda felt on her special day.
