A Hug Warms the Soul

You are stuck with me for the next week, as Margaret has company arriving tonight.  Hope I don't disappoint!

Tonight's card is a friendship card.  I have a friend that was diagnosed with breast cancer last week.  I hope to send a card to her at least twice a month, as well as participate in her Meal Train.  

I used a Cheery Lynn die for the circle aspect of the sketch, which comes from The Sweet Stop.  I forgot to use the wax paper, so I spent quite a while picking out all the little pieces (while watching an episode of Mad Men I had taped, which made it less of a task!).  DP comes from Queen Bee, cs from DCWV.  MFT flower dies were used, with an extra large rhinestone in the center.  The Inky Antics sentiment is stamped with Soft Suede from SU!

I am also entering the following challenges:

Nutcrafters - mostly monochrome
Lexi's Creations - Focus on the sentiment
Word Art Wednesday - Anything goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I just prayed for her -- I hope her treatment goes well. Thanks for joining us at Word Art Wednesday.
