It's Hard to Say Goodbye

I know I'm getting older, because I can feel it!  I've lost a few friends, and several others have gotten sick.  I don't want to get old, but I know it's all in God's hands, not mine, and there is nothing I can do to change it, prevent it, or stop it.  I don't want to sound morbid, but it's one of those things in life that eventually one has to discuss, we just put it off, and sometimes until it's too late.

I've recently come down with Diabetes type 2, and since my diagnosis, I've lost 44 pounds.  It seems as though I've come to a plateau, but hopefully, it's just a minor one!  I haven't felt this good in a long time, and then again, other things hurt more!  Go figure!?!  Don't wait until something happens to jeopardize your health before starting to take better care of yourself!  I care about you, and so does your family!  Your body is God's vessel, so please take care of it while you're here!  I'll step down off my soap box and get on to my card, now.

This sentiment is one from Justrite Stampers.  The roses were made from white cardstock scraps, and the leaves from green textured cardstock.  The edge punch is from EKSuccess.  Cardstock is from my stash - I'm sorry about not having all the details about what I used on this card - it's one of those that I needed in a hurry, and I used a little of this, and a little of that, from here, and from there. 

Thank you for your visit, and I hope you'll come back again soon!


  1. Your card is beautiful. As one who is also getting up there in age, and losing friends more and more often, not to mention our own health issues, I can relate to what you said.

    1. Hi, Kathi! I appreciate your sweet comment, and I pray that your own health issues are not serious, and that God will keep his healing hands on you! I guess it's all called, "LIFE".

      Thanks again! You can write to me anytime at

  2. Your card is beautifully gentle & I do like your colours - it's good to see these rather than the very sombre ones usually found on this type of card. I also like your thoughtful sentiment. The flowers are gorgeous - I'd love to know how you make those from scraps - are they punched, perhaps when you have time you could make a tutorial, but no pressure.
    Much love & take care

  3. Beautiful card, Clare! The colors are so pretty and uplifting and so is the sentiment! Beautiful flowers!Sorry to hear about your diagnosis, but congrats on your efforts to be healthier! Take care!


I appreciate the time you have taken to visit! I love hearing from you and hope you have a happy and blessed day!
