For Faith, From the Heart

Hello, friends!  I am here to share a card today in honor of Faith Skrdla, the founder of From the Heart Stamps, who passed away at the end of July after bravely battling brain cancer.  I have been meaning to make a card in her honor since I heard the news, and today I get the chance to share a card using one of her digital images that always brings a smile to my face.

Reading Faith's obituary (shared at the From the Heart blog) left me feeling sad and very humbled.  In her 40 years of life she accomplished more than some people accomplish in twice that time.  Education, athletics, travel, family, ministry, career...she did it all and with great grace.  Although we never met, I have always admired her artistic abilities; after reading about her life, I admire her on so many deeper levels.  

What a gift she has left us...strangers and friends from all around the world.  Images, drawn by her hand, that we can repeatedly use to both find and bring happiness to others.  

This card is in gratitude for Faith, for her shared talents, for her life.  I hope it makes you feel happy...I'm willing to bet that was her intention.

I'm entering this card into the current challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #256: Anything Goes.  

Thank you for stopping by,


  1. Oh Judy, this is such a loving post and such a sweet card! So thoughtful of you. <3

  2. Wonderful tribute to Faith, Judy. It wouldn't surprise me one bit to find she's smiling down from heaven at your card, and loving the kind words you've written. To her family, I'm sure, she'll always live on, and to the crafters of this world, she most definitely will through her artistic endeavors. You're a kind friend. Bev

  3. This is such a beautiful post Judy. She sounds like someone who was truly blessed. How wonderful that her art can live on for so many to enjoy. Yes, this little bird did bring a smile. It's an adorable card!
