Reindeer Cactus and Home is Where the Heart is

Hand Full of Stamps: "Getting ready for the Hollidays" we are to make a card for any holliday
365 Cards Day 259 "Imagine This: Snow"

FYI SNOW = YUK to me!!! :0)
I am a desert rat born and raised so this is my "snow" Pam ;0)

paper: BG wassail, fiskars threading water punch, the super cute reindeer cactus is a new digi from Simple Doodles , sentiment is CG, su! large oval and scalloped oval punch

Day 260 "Super Sketchy Sunday"
It looks nothing like the sketch so I am not even going to post the sketch!! LOL

paper: k&co, ms butterfly punch, nesties, digi and sentiment are from Simple Doodles , pearl heart

I made day 259 yesterday before being told I no longer had a job. So today's card is a forced effort and it shows!! Even my new nesties didn't help :0(
I know I have several Christian women as cyber friends and your prayers are needed. TIA

Both of these cards are great, Rose!! Love the paper you used for the is a really fun card. The sketch card is so bright and cheerful....I really like the way you did the little house.

I am very sorry to hear about your job. This will give you the chance to seek out a job with better hours. My thoughts and prayers are with you that you are able to find a new job quickly.

Rose dear,
I am so sorry to read that you lost your jub. even though I'm not Christian, I pray for you to find a new, and much better, job.
don't lose your cheerfulness. I'm sure things will turn out good.

The cards are adorable. I too find it hard to make a snowy challenge, living in a warm desert country...

big hug.

Rose, I love your cards. I haven't posted by SSS card either cause I think it looks nothing like the sketch. Oh well, tomorrow's another day.

I am sorry to hear about your job. But know that God works in mysterious ways and there's a better plan in the works for you.

Forced effort or not I think it's a lovely card, love the colors. I will for sure be praying for you...

I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Just know that all things work together for good for those who are called by God (Romans 8:28). Keep the faith and KNOW that He has a plan for your life, even though sometimes we don't understand His ways.

BTW- your cactus card is simply adorable.

It is very diffult to lose a job because the path is so uncertain and one's fears come to the forfront.Somehow though one always makes it through and often we need to rely on friends, faith and creativity to help us through. Your cards show the love and care that you need and it also inspires others to find the fun. All the best and thoughts are with you
