It is Ash Wednesday and for all of you who celebrate the Christian faith, I wish you a day filled with reflection. During the journey of Lent, I hope you find peace in your prayer and penitence as we look to renew our lives with God’s grace.
Last weekend, my son’s school had a fund-raiser that was really fun. As a small Catholic school, these fund-raisers are critical to get needed books and up-to-date teaching supplies. The community members of Warrenton were incredibly generous and offered raffle items for the event. If you live in or near Fauquier County, please remember to tell Iron Bridge Wine Company, Hartman Jewelers and Old Town Athletic Center that their contributions are truly appreciated! As a small thank you to them, I made some cards for the school to send. We all know the power of a hand-made, hand-written note and I hope that these will show our gratitude.
I think the beauty of the card lies in the Clean and Simple style. I love the crosses in my Crosses of Hope set and the sentiment says it all. I stamped in Night of Navy and added a Night of Navy border. A large pearl from the Basic Pearls is the finishing touch. The event coordinator wanted to hand write her thanks and I think the sponsors will greatly appreciate her efforts!
Thanks for stopping in today. I’ll be back tomorrow with another ColorLab Challenge.
I hope that your Lenten sacrifices come back to you as rich blessings and that the true Cross of Hope strengthens you every day.
