This is a double pocket card I did a while ago.

Hello crafty friends!

Here is a quick post to let you know about the August challenge at Eclectic Ellapu.  The August challenge is geared toward friends.  We want to you show us something you made for a friend within the last 12 months; it doesn’t have to be a card.   It just so happened that I had a friend who was going through a very difficult time, so I sent her this card of encouragement.  I wanted to remind her to keep her faith as our Lord and Savior ALWAYS has her back…praise HIM all the time even in the mist of our trials.   Praise HIM for what HE going to do in your life even when you can’t see it… 
See you in the challenge…
