A crop party is a modern quilting bee. A group of friends gather to have girl friend time, sharing joys and sorrows while preserving memories and creating a special keepsake.

Sending Hope and Comfort


I have two friends whose husbands are fighting cancer.  One has been fighting for some time; the other is just beginning his battle.  Both are people of strong faith.  When I ordered this stamp I was specifically thinking of my first friend and her husband, but now I am using it for the other as well.  The paper comes from a very old Close to My Heart paper pack which I believe is called Majestic Blue.  I chose the compass theme because sometimes we just have to let go and let God determine the direction.  I used this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

Thank you for stopping by! Until next time, Hansi

  1. I love everything about this, Hansi. It is so fitting for your friend's situations. I love the verse, and the paper is a perfect complement to the theme. Really beautifully created. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
