Traci S. said...

Dear Grace,

First of all, Congratulations on winning the He IS Able Blog's Candy Extravaganza! It will be on it's way to you on Monday! Congratulations!

This card is so beautiful. It made my eyes tear. I loe what is written in that beautiful frams with the tiny "jewels." It is so appropriate to have the cross hanging right there. The ribbon that makes that incredible bow is spectacular! I love the section which has Ecclesiastes 3:1-8. It is perfect with all of these warm colors, and perfect because it is His Word, which is the Perfect Truth.

Grace, this is so beautiful!

Remember~
He IS Able!
Traci S.
