Hug For A Friend!! Flutter By Wednesday

I made this card for a very good friend I work with that lost her grandfather to cancer last week. She is taking it so hard as the family has only known less than a month that he had cancer. I just want her to know that she may not want to talk but that there are BIG hugs waiting for her when she needs one!! She is an amazing women, mother and friend!!

For the Image I used a Wags n Whiskars stamp called Snuzzle Love. Isn't she just the cutest!! I just love her sweet adorable face and those big eyes!! I just want to pick her up and hug her!!lol, that is if she was real!!
The sentiment on the inside was computer generated!! As I didn't have a stamp that said what I wanted it to say!! I also created this card for the Flutter By Wednesday Challenge #98, and for the challenge over at the Wags n Whiskars Blog. Which both are open this week. The paper I used has butterflies on it and is from DCWV. Also I added some punched butterflies that I covered in glitter glue. Since the paper had so much going on I didn't want to add too much to it and over power the image.
Come back tomorrow for my first DT card for InStyle Stamps. It will be a Sketch Challenge over on the Club Anime blog. It will be posted here on my blog and the Club Anime Blog, along with the other DT's Sketch challenge cards. Until then I hope you have a wonderful start to your week!!
