Tag for my Teacher

Hi Guys,
Well my blog hop was a blast for my birthday, thanks to all who helped make my 12th birthday a GREAT one!!!
I got some sad news from one of my teachers, they found a mass on her pancreas, so we have been praying hard!!!  She has decided to call it a cyst ~ just sounds better!!! and she even named it Tommy!  She is an awesome lady and such a caring teacher and and strong Christian so she will get thru this.  They are unsure if it is cancer or not and right now she is going thru a lot of testing and will have a major surgery to remove it later this summer.  So I decided to make her a tag she can use as a book mark as she has several books going at one time!
Here it is . . .

The stamp is from God's Art, my newest A Jillian Vance Design stamp sets found to Pre-Order here
I used the "No worries in a year of drought"sentiment because with God we SHOULD have no worries but of course as my Mom always says, she gives her troubles to Him and then takes them back 50,000 times! 

The sentiment comes from Jeremiah 17:8 "He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit."

I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Vintage Photo and Wild Honey for the back ground with a little Perfect Pearls Mist in Sparkling Sunflower.  Then stamped the tree in Coffee Archival, bird in Black Archival Ink and Owl in Library Green Archival Ink.  For the flowers I used Vermillion Archival Ink and instead of stamping them on the branch of the tree, I used them at the base to make it look like they were growing around the base of the tree.  I think it adds a special touch!  

The ribbon was hand dyed with Barn Door Distress Ink and Perfect Pearls Mist in Sparkling Sunflower to add the perfect touch to bring out the flowers!

Thanks for looking, leave me a comment!!
