Scalloped Envelope Basket

Today I have another basket to share, this one uses the scallop envelope die. I cut 4 of them and cut one side flap off and attached them to each other, then folded the flaps in to form the bottom, added a handle and decorated. I really love how this turned out. This is another one for the Pink Event.

Have you ever felt like God puts someone in your path for a reason. I certainly got this feeling today. I went to Dillard's today to look for a pink shirt since I wanted something pink to wear to The Pink Event on Saturday. The sales lady asked if she could help me and I told her what I was looking for and why I needed it. She told me that she was a cancer survivor and as we looked at different blouses and shirts she told me a little about her story. I found what I wanted and was ready to walk off when she said she noticed the t-shirt I was wearing today, it was a t-shirt that said First Baptist Church of Harrisburg, and asked if I would pray for her. She went on to tell me that her cancer is back and that she is having surgery next week. Today was the first time I had ever seen her and the two of stood there in the middle of that store and cried together, prayed, and talked for 30 minutes. I know God put us together for a reason, I don't know for sure what the reason is or was, but I know she has left an impression on me. We hugged again as I left and I promised her to continue to pray for her, she is a christian and has complete faith that no matter the outcome of her surgery, she is in God's hands but she is also very scared.

Sandy, saw you were a member of 1st Baptist. In our little stampin group 3 of the 4 of us are from 1st Baptist in Shelbyville. I could tell you were a Christian before just from your blog. Nice to be doing my SU business from a fellow Baptist and most of all a believer! Keep up the good work!!
