Recovering...

A friend of many, many years is struggling to recover from a catastrophic illness. I wanted to create a special card for her, which I'll do on a regular basis, just to cheer her on and to let her know she's in my thoughts, even though we live far from one another. I used this beautiful sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design, butterflies on acetate from Crafty Individuals, and corner flourishes from the Siberian Iris set from Flourishes Stamps for her card. The border punch is Stampin' Up. At Created by Hand, the challenge theme is to use sand and blue. The Crazy Amigos challenge this week is to use proverbs or sayings. At Timeless Tuesday, the challenge is to use acetate. Thanks for stopping by today.
