For Janelle

I'm so happy to be back today to celebrate a wonderful, inspiring, truly strong woman - Janelle. My friends Laurie and Dana have organized a special blog hop just for her!

If you don't know Janelle's story, you can find it on her blog, along with her beautiful creations. 

While I've never met her in person, it didn't take long through our online interactions for me to realize she is one of the sweetest, most genuinely caring women I know. Her faith and strength are truly inspiring. 

Janelle and Ken, I think of you both often and hope that this blog hop provides some sunshine to your day. 



To see the other cards to celebrate and honor Janelle or to participate in the hop, stop over at Laurie's blog. 

This card also fits for the CASE Study #83 Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by! 





Supplies:

Stamps: Love and Marriage, Faith and Hope (PTI)
Cardstock: Simply Chartreuse, Soft Stone (PTI)
Patterned Paper: Simply Chartreuse Leaves (PTI)
