Hello everyone.  I hope you're all having a great day.  I got busy this morning making some Design Team cards I needed to take care of, and when I finished those, I decided to make another card for a couple of challenges.  I used Simple Stories Summertime for the patterned papers, and then October Afternoon for the stickers and chipboard embellishments, then added some machine sewing, a Melissa Frances rub-on and some Baker's Twine.  I plan to send this to a friend who is terminally ill.  I try to get at least one card per week in the mail to her for encouragement.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek.  I truly appreciate your comments, and look forward to visiting your blogs as well.  Have a wonderful day.
