This little light of mine...I'm gonna let it shine

Hello dear friends!  Welcome to my newest follower Judith :o) 
So happy to have you along to share my crafty journey.  

I recently shared with you that I am now on the design team for Deedee's Digis.  
Today I have a card that I made using one of the Deedee's images called "Little Light".
You can find this awesome digital image and sentiments in the Deedee's Digital Store 
where it's currently a FREEBIE.  Yes, that's right I said FREEBIE - but only for awhile 
so don't delay in grabbing it. You will find it in the Newest Releases Section. 

My card today is made in memory of my beloved Grandma Hester 
who passed away recently (just a few days after she had her 98th birthday).  
Here's my card and my story about it is noted below:
Grandma Hester had a love for small children like no one else I've experienced in my life.  Even in her late 80's she could be seen crawling around on the floor with the toddlers.  She loved the Lord and was a faithful church goer.  Her very favorite song was "This Little Light of Mine".  She sang it to me and my sisters always when we were little (sometimes even after we were grown) and to our own children.  
Each and every week (at least once) she sang it to her Sunday school class. 

I nearly burst into tears when I saw this image and it's sentiments in Deedee's store because of the special meaning it has to me. It came out right after my Grandma passed away. As funny as this may seem it felt like a gift directly from the Lord to me.  I think the reality of losing her is just now hitting me and I miss her so very much more than words can express.  I was her very first Grand daughter and I believe that I held a very special place in her heart.  I know she did in mine.  
Thank you for letting me share my story and my card with you today!
