A Big Hug


Cream and white - one of my favorite color combinations. How lucky I am that the newest Sassy Cheryl challenge just so happens to be a Vintage cream and white challenge. I used the Just Be Yourself Sally image which is available at Sassy Cheryl Stamps or Squigglefly.

I seem to have a great need right now for cards that express hugs. I know that getting a handmade card (or any card) is like getting a hug anyway, but I need cards that REALLY pack in a hug. I decided this one should have an obvious hug message as it is going to a couple that really really need a hug and they are too far away for me to give them one.

Hope your week has gone well and that you are getting in a lot of crafting or whatever makes you smile and feel less stressed.

HUGZ,
Nancy
