So glad we're here for each other!

Good morning/afternoon, friends!  Finally, Northern Ireland has a taste of beautiful summer weather!  It is so lovely to have heat and sunshine...hope it lasts.
Today's card is another one I made for the CAS-Colours and Sketches Challenge #32.  I don't know if it will be accepted because there may be a limit on the number of entries and I have already entered.  But anyway, I love these three colours together!  I'm also entering this into Lesley's Challenge at Fusion #13 using the sketch as inspiration.
All the stamps, papers, ink and embellishments are Stampin' Up! (just not the base card).

Thought for the Week
Today I'd just like to share a simple thought with you, that the LORD has used recently to bless my heart.  Prayer...I am learning every day that it is so wonderful to have someone who loves and cares for us to pour our hearts out to.  And not only can we talk to our Heavenly Father at any time of the day or night but He is waiting for us to come to Him.  It must be a bit like when you say to someone "Oh I'll give you a ring later" but you get caught up doing something else and don't get round to making the call.  It might not have bothered you, but your friend may have really been looking forward to hearing from you and they may feel a bit disappointed that you didn't call them.  We know deep down in our hearts that it will please the LORD and indeed bless our own heart if we pray, but something else always seems to get in the way.  The next time you hear that little prompt in your heart saying 'Go and talk to the LORD about this' then follow up on that.  Whatever you're doing, nothing is as important as having a talk with your Heavenly Father.
Thanks for visiting today!  Have a great week!
