For my S-I-L

I created this card for my sister-in-law.

She loves Hawaii, and absolutely has a 'thing' for turtles, so this card will be perfect.

The sentiment reads:

Faith is knowledge within the heart...

beyond the reach of proof.

She's going in for surgery today to remove a cancerous tumor, though I won't share all the back-story and details here.

I wouldn't normally share something that is so personal to someone else on my blog, so I hope she understands and is okay with it. 

I know I could have just posted the card and left it at that.

But I know and have faith that prayers and well wishes do help with healing.

Please keep her in your thoughts/prayers.  :)

Happy creating!  :)

Edited to add:  Her surgery went better than expected, and she's doing well.  Thanks for all of your prayers and well-wishes.  :)
