For Janelle...

If you're just tuning in...
take a hop over to Laurie's blog (Soapbox Creations) to start from the beginning...
but this is a special blog hop for a very special person...
Janelle from Show and Tell who is quite literally one of the sweetest, most encouraging and just amazing people you could ever hope to encounter.
Janelle was diagnosed with a brain tumor last Summer and if you have spent time on her blog...
then you know what a beautiful soul she is and I don't have to tell you about her beautiful creations...
unwavering faith...
her strength and courage...
and that incredibly beautiful smile that greets you with each visit.
Now I won't keep you long...
I want you to be able to get to everyone on this hop...
most especially Janelle...
and send some warm wishes to help brighten her day.
So here's a card I made for her...
and though it's not an exact CASE you can tell I was heavily inspired by Tosh's card here...
when I saw it I just knew this was one for Janelle...


I used Waltzingmouse Nordic Spring and that big, beautiful butterfly...
colored with a few Copics...
it just seems so fresh and clean...
just like Spring...
and a time of hope and new beginnings.

Janelle...
I hope you enjoy this and know that many thoughts, prayers and well wishes come with it!



The Details:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Nordic Spring, Say It With Style
Cardstock: PTI STamper's Select, Plum Pudding
Misc: Copics, bling

  32. Hi Renee!

    First off I am a huge fan of purple :) and the little rhinestone accents/butterfly flying over the edge of the card are so nice!

    Thanks for being part of the BlogHop! I am having such a great time reading everyone's blog entries for this hop. You said such sweet things about my mom, and every one of those things is true. She is absolutely amazing, and so BLESSED to have "friends" all over the country thinking of her during the time :)
