Hang In there...

I've had a busy few days, but was able to create a card for one of my best friends. She just lost her 4th baby in the last year (this time at 20 weeks)--and my heart just aches for her. I'm hoping this will be a little something to let her know how much I care for her.

I actually bought this stamp (Sympathy Bugs by Wee Stamps) specifically for this card...I'd been looking and looking for it but it was out of stock at a lot of places, but I finally found it at Stamp and Create...one of my favorite online stores. I love the way the image looks cut out of the box and I had a blast with my embellishing of the image. I used several different bottles of Stickles: cinnamon, black diamond, star dust and diamond. I used Glossy Accents for the berries and the little bugs noses.

Did you know that I didn't even realize this was a butterfly with a LADYBUG until I stamped it out. Then I went "Oohhhh!!!" I loved it even more. So cute.

The sentiment is from the Verve set "Always on My mind"--I used another stamp from the set on the inside where it says "You're in every one of my thoughts today", stamped on a faint copy of the front image. I think my bestie will love it because I made it just for HER!

The layout is this week's Mojo Monday Sketch #233--perfect for what I needed!
