Pie for a Friend

We have a dear friend who's recently had a heart transplant.

His old heart was as big as all outdoors.

His new one is too and it's giving him a chance to continue to live, laugh and love abundantly.

We pray it will be for many, many more  years.

When I saw the Make it Monday challenge,

I thought of a sun.

That made me think of Bill.

A card was born.


I don't have a lot of Papertrey Ink products.

That's a problem I've been trying to rectify!

This sentiment is in the Meadow Greens set.

I thought it was a perfect sentiment for this occasion.

I hope it will bring some sunshine your way today too.

I can't resist taking this to 
Pixie's Snippet Playground
as this is a wonderful way to use some of those snippets.
Thanks for the shout out on my tulips, Di!

I'm so glad you could stop by today!

Enjoy!

This is so lovely Bonnie. It's just another ray of sunshine, and Friend Bill will just love it. Really like all these 'rays' designs I'm seeing. I have a die but it's a NBUS. This makes me want to go hunt it up. Have you looked at ODBD for nice sentiment sets? I don't have much PTI either. Some stamps (NBUS). Happy Sunday. Hugs & tfs
