A Freshly Made Card to Go With a Freshly Made Dinner

One of my scrappin' friends has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer and is going through the stress of arranging for treatment while keeping her family going with their assorted activities.  I made this card using the Freshly Made Sketch below to go with the dinner that I will be taking to them tomorrow.  Yes, I know I have used this butterfly a lot lately, but of all my butterfly stamps, this one fit the paper and sentiment the best.  Here is the inside: 

I also plan to enter this in the Heart to Heart  challenge to Button Up.  Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time, Hansi

Paper:  Majestic Blues (retired), Bamboo and Colonial White cardstock
Stamps:  Find Your Style (retired), Be Still
Ink:  Chocolate, Bamboo, Outdoor Denim, Sky, Gypsy
