#BEASTmode Blog Hop

Today, I am participating in a blog hop to encourage my friend, Jen Del Muro.


Jen was diagnosed with breast cancer toward the end of last year. 
She's been dealt a pretty bad hand as far as the treatment for 
her type of aggressive cancer, but the prognosis is good. 
This year will be quite the journey and battle, but she is a strong and very motivated woman. 
She's done lots of reading up on how she can take on a positive role in fighting 
her cancer from all angles, including diet and exercise. 
With only a couple of treatments under her belt so far, she is looking and 
feeling good, and plans to keep it that way! 
Her mantra has become a viral hashtag among her friends and crafty peers - #beastmode - 
and it totally fits Jen's personality! 
We love her!

Here's the card that I made for Jen, to let her know that 
I'm thinking of her and praying for her. 


I started by stamping my background with my Color Me Happy stamp in Stone Ink.
I diecut a from Stone Cardstock.
I stamped my I stamped the leaves and blooms using Blooms 'n Buds


I stamped the sentiment (from My Heart Trusts) in black ink.
