Godspeed Our Dear Friend...

*This morning is a rather sad one here in our little part of the world.  The voice of our local radio station, Mr Randy Jones passed away Sunday morning.  We are all so very saddened and shocked at his sudden passing.  Randy was one of the kindest men you could have ever met with an amazing radio voice like none other.  I distinctly remember Abby's first time meeting him in person.  At just over a year old, she had already grown accustomed to his voice because it is what she heard on the radio every morning as we woke up and on the way to her Mam and Pap's house...  Her face lit up like she'd saw Santa Clause, and with his amazing love for children, Randy's lit up as well :o) Please keep Randy's family in your prayers.*

How appropriate that today's challenge over at Deedee's Digis is one of encouragement.  She has an awesome scripture digi as a freebie today and you totally don't want to miss this one!  I decided to pair this challenge with the color challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts today.  To be honest, I *tried* to combine it with The Sweet Stop Sketch challenge for this week, but got a little too far off track when I couldn't find an oval (or the cord for my Gypsy to cut one out)!  LOL  My wonderful image is of course from Deedee's Digi's Bloom Where You're Planted.

So, what are you waiting for!  Click on over to the Crafting with Deedee's Digis blog and pick up your freebie!  While you are making the encouragement for someone else, remember to add it to Mr Linky for everyone to see!

God Bless You,


  1. Stunning, Mary! I'm sorry to hear of the story behind the DJ's passing and his family - how very sad, and praying the family finds comfort in the journey ahead!

  2. What a vibrant, beautiful card, Mary! Love the colors you used and that fun lace. I am so sorry to hear of Randy's passing. He sounds like he was a terrific man, and I'll be praying for his family.
