ave you every had those moments in your life where your feeling overwhelmed or uncertain? Maybe it's because your a new mother, just started a new job or moved to a new town and haven't found any friends yet! I wanted to come up with a card that would be great to send to our family and friends that are in this situation. The difference receiving an assuring card can make in someone's live is monumental.
I have a brother who is fighting cancer at this time. He lives in Australia which is so far away. Anytime he gets mail it brightens his day! Now this card would need to be a little more masculine for him but the point is, we need to send more cards that can uplift people and brighten their days!
For this card I used the Hydrangea Haven Bundle by Stampin UP!® The great thing is that Stampin Up® designed an entire suite of products that coordinate with this bundle! So lets look at how I put it all together!
