Just Us Girls challenge # 368 ~ Encouragement

Word Week is over at the Just Us Girls Challenge and the word is "encouragement"
I have a special friend that just found out she has breast cancer, so when I saw the challenge was for encouragement, I knew I wanted to make this card for her!
This is what I used:
Altenew: Beautiful Day
PTI: Inspired: Hope

It has pretty much rained all day!!

Heart Hugs, friends!


  1. Oh wow, Col, this is absolutely gorgeous. Love, love, love it. And your friend is going to love it too.
