A little Kindness Goes a Long Way... Happy Day

Last week was full of hustle and bustle, but I did manage to do one amazing thing.  I accompanied my friend to her first day of chemo infusions and surprised her with a day of crafting, keeping her mind off cancer and medicines.  The night before I stayed up until 3am and cut the layers needed for 100 cards and embossed the cause ribbon on each card front.  The next day wte had 7 hours in front of us to either be scared and sad, or laugh and make cards.  Not only did we do that, but we prayed over each card and wrote a message in each one for unknown recipients.  I am including a blurred picture of my friend to protect her privacy, but you can still see that smile!   In addition to the cards we made together, I made a few depicting RAK cards. Please feel free to check out my cards and say a prayer for my friend.  Without further ado....
