Hope…Ministry Card #8…!

Hello All!

Another Ministry Card

and the last of the Black and White Tropical DSP!

This will not be the last Ministry Card, but it is the end

of the rogue tropical DSP, I found in my stash on a clean out!

‘Stay-in-Place’ made me do it!

Today’s Card is to offer ‘Hope’!

I guess it is appropriate for these times, right now!

We ALL could use a little ‘Hope’!


Here is Today’s Card!


I stamped these flowers in 3 different colors,

3 different times, and fussy-cut,

before I settled on these for the front!

The color of these flowers, is Poppy Parade!

I wanted the flowers to ‘POP!’

Hint: the inside flower stamped, was the first choice!


Here is the inside of the Card!


This flower was the original choice, Petal Pink

I liked that it didn’t overpower the sentiment.

It is why, I stayed with this color for the interior!




White from Michael’s, base, 8.5″ x 5.5″ scored @ 4.25

inside panel, 3.75″ x 5″

Call Me Clover- front mat, 2 1/8″ x 5.5″          inside mat, 4″ x 5.25″


Black and White Tropical paper, found in my stash, either from Michael’s

or Hobby Lobby, 2″ x 5.25″


Timeless Tropical- flowers and leaves

AliExpress- found these scripture-like quotes- greeting and inside sentiment


Memento Tuxedo Black- greeting and inside sentiments

Call Me Clover- all leaves

Petal Pink- inside flower

Poppy Parade- front flowers


Share What You Love, Artisan Pearls, in So Saffron- flower centers, on front


Here is the Card, once again!


This is the last of the Black and White Tropical DSP from my stash!

I still have the TROPICAL OASIS DSP in my stash from the Mini Catalog!

I will be using that up in the future, but not now!



Most states are now slowly opening their retail stores.

This will be gradual, and slow. Be patient.

We really are not out of the woods, as far as, this pandemic goes.

We will see much improvement over the Summer…but, then FALL.

We will have the regular resurgence of the normal flu, but Covid-19

will rear it’s ugly head again.

Do what the CDC says, take your precautions.

Continue to:

Wash your hands, thoroughly,

Wear a face mask, inside stores,

keep social distancing, minimum 6 feet apart,

Use common sense folks.

We are a Social Species, that is what telephones are for!

With all the gadgetry out there, Facebook, Facetime, Skype,

and all the other media screen times…use them to keep

the elderly informed of you, but also to keep an eye on them too!

And to stay in touch with friends and family!

This is a different World we live in…we ALL need to adapt to the new norms!

There is Hope! We have Faith over Fear!

God is in Control and this is part of His plan.

We only see this side of it…God sees the other side.

Keep the Faith, Trust in the Lord, and Pray for your Family!

Until the next Post…Blessings and Hope to you ALL!
