I thought of another card in the middle of the night. It seems I'm quite creative when everyone else is sound asleep! I was thinking about how my back has been hurt for about two full years now but before long I will get to have surgery, I'll recover, and this will just be a small portion of my life in hindsight. The black clouds are almost gone, the silver lining will show itself and then happy times will be here again. White puffy clouds are in my future! That became the foundation for this shaker card. Everyone goes through hard, black cloud times but a silver lining and good times are just around the corner. It's simple and to the point. Hopefully it will remind the person I send to who is going through a hard time not to give up but focus on the future coming!
I am entering my card into Virginia's View Challenge #12 Shaker Cards. There are over one hundred shaker cars entered now. If you're a shaker card enthusiast, that is the place to go!
I am also entering my card into Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge, which is A Piece of Paradise. When you've been staring at black clouds for a while, believe me a giant cloud with a silver lining and a white, fluffy cloud is a piece of paradise!
