For Naomi

Over on Flourishes newsletter today its a Free For All Friday. This is the last day for the new release bundle at 10% off when you buy all 3 sets together don't forget. This is a little gift set for a 5 year old little girl named Naomi. We were listening to a pod cast of Christine and her DH preach at their church on Leaving a legacy of faith. In listening to this service (which was awesome by the way) Christine shared about Naomi and her family. Naomi just underwent brain surgery a few weeks ago. Her family is not only going through all that goes along with surgery and hospital visits etc, they are finding time to minister to the other parents and kids at the hospital that are sick. Now that is just AWESOME! Setting your own situation aside to help others speaks volumes and I just hope that God blesses them for the faith and love they are showing others.
This looks like a card which it is, however I added a pocket to the inside and I have stamped out some extras of the Enjoy the Ride set for Naomi to color. I thought this fun little bookmark would be put to good use while she is at the doctor's offices. I hope she likes the gift. I have some sparkle added to the mane but its hard to see in the photo. Check out the girls Free for all Friday creations:

Only 3 more days till CHA. I am on a rollar coaster of feelings about this whole thing. LOL But the girls promise I will be safe and have a great time! The boys are a little nervous that dad will be making dinners and lunches. ha-ha The closer we get to me leaving the more anxious they are getting. They even asked if I could say I was sick and couldn't go. Aaahhh... they are so sweet. Making it harder and harder for me though. LOL It is going to be good for me and them!
Don't forget that Clear Dollar Stamps sneak peeks begin next Wed. 28th. I will only have a post on the 30th till I get back! Hope you have a fabulous week and see you at CHA if you are there!

What a precious gift for Naomi! I know she will be blessed to get it as will her parents! Nice to see you are going to be missed - love the "say you are sick" comment LOL! They'll be fine for a few days. Daddy won't do things the way mommy does but all will be well and you'll be very appreciated when you get home!

You're so sweet and thoughtful, Stacy! This is a wonderful gift for a little girl and Naomi will be enchanted! As time draws near, I feel funny about leaving my little Rich and Wally family, too. I love them both so much! We're all in this together and we'll just have to watch out for each other.
