Praying Hands and Trust God

Here's a sample that I created using the new Praying Hands and Trust God stamp sets:
I used the Simply Scored tool to create a pattern on the card front.  I punched  the sentiment out with the extra large oval punch, then mounted it on top of the smallest Labels Framelits.

A few nights ago while we were getting ready for bed Clarice told me that she wants to go to heaven.  I asked her why and she said, "Because I want to see Jesus!"  What an imagination and curiosity my little girl has.  I told her that I need her to be here on Earth with me right now, but when it's time for her to go to heaven, she'll be my angel.

Stamps: Praying Hands, Trust God
Paper: Whisper White, Soft Suede
Ink: Soft Suede
Accessories: Big Shot, Labels Framelits, Extra Large Oval punch, Simply Scored

Happy Stamping!

Beautiful card! I love the scored lines for the background! Isn't amazing what a grasp children can have at such a young age? Your story reminded me of when my FIL died. My youngest couldn't understand why everyone was crying and sad if Papaw was in heaven and not sick anymore. Melted my heart! We did a simple explanation that we weren't sad that he was in heaven, but were sad because we were going to miss seeing and talking to him.
