This card was sent to my son's teacher. His wife battled cancer for 2 years. I was sending the family a card a month while they were on this journey. I sent this one to let him know He still is being prayed for by our family. She is now with Jesus. I'm not sure it turned out as manly as I wanted it, but I had fun making it and alot of prayer went with it, which is the most important part of it.

The background stamp-I found this at michaels in the clearence area. It was a set of rubber impressions for soap making. I thought this would make a great background stamp. the stamp is actually the size of the square on the front and stamped it 4 times to make the back ground. I added adheasive foam to the back and viola I made a stamp out of it, for .99 I got 4 different stamps.
