Blog Hop for Dawn McVey

 Hi friends!  Have you heard of the Blog Hop for one of our favorite Papertrey Designers?
Dawn McVey just had an intestine transplant last week in Washington DC; it will be a 4 - 6 month recovery for her and cards is what we do to encourage and lift friends up...so dig out any stamps or dies designed by Dawn and post them over at Capture the Moment...the hop will last all week!   Go Here: Papertrey blog to send words of encouragement and hope to Dawn and to bring a smile to her face...let her know we love her, miss her and wish her a speedy recovery!
  Even before the full reveal of the "Envelope Envy" I went all out on this special card...
I stamped the inside (above)
 I made an insert for the inside of the envelope,
 I stamped on the front of the envelope...
And lastly the back flap of the envelope!
See you at the HOP!!
Garden Party stamp set.
Heart Hugs, friends!
