Get well soon!

My dearest friend Pen, who I've known way longer than I haven't known her, is going through a tough time at the moment. She was diagnosed with breast cancer recently and yesterday had a mastectomy. She's been unbelievably up beat (most of the time) and I'm so proud of her. So I've made her a tag with a little case for it to go in.


Some of you may know Pen through her work with Craftstamper and The Stamp Bug. I know she would really appreciate any support offered at the moment so if you fancy sending her a card, just let me know and I'll pass on her address (no spammers pleeeze!!!)



This has always been one of my fave Paperbag Studios stamps not only because of the obvious joy in the girl's face but also because of the great sentiment down the side. The second pic just shows the detail of how I attached the ribbon to the tag with wire.
I'm also putting it into this week's challenge on Crazy Amigos - rubons
