A Rosy Thank You

Today's card was made for a lady who is a complete stranger, who showed me such unexpected kindness. I took a feral cat that was sick and badly injured into the vet to have him neutered. He had been in so many fights that his face and neck were scratched and bleeding; on top of that he had mange, and probably some serious diseases. This kind lady offered to pay to have him tested for feline leukemia, which would have been big bucks for me to pay out of pocket. She works at an animal shelter in another city. As it turned out, according to the vet, the poor little guy was so sick that he could not have survived the neutering surgery and she recommended that he be put down, which I did. So sad, but he was really suffering. The kind lady gave me her card, so I sent her this thank you note.

These were used to make the card:

Die-Namics Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose - A favorite because it is easy to make a pretty rose from this die, and the end result is a nice size for an A2 card...
Spellbinders Ribbon Banners
Martha Stewart Branch Punch
Stampin' Up Victorian Lace Stamp
Blue Ink
Hero Arts Stamp
String Pearls
Silver Flecked Tulle
White Ribbon
Loose Iridescent Glitter

Here it is:

Romans 10:9-10
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.  NLT

Acts 13:38-39
"Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is declared right with God--something the law of Moses could never do."  NLT
