#beastmode Blog Hop

It's the #beastmode blog hop for Jen of Reverse Confetti!  What's #beastmode?  Read on:

“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!”

Please schedule your annual mammogram today💚

Thanks to Jennifer McGuire for putting this together!  

You should have arrived here from Heather Hoffman's blog!  If not, the fun starts at Susan Liles Blog!  

So, I had the pleasure of spending some time with Jen at CHA 2016.  I'm always grateful to meet up with my crafty friends💚  She's awesome, seriously.  So when I started to decide on my card design for her, I knew that I wanted to go springy.


I think she'll like it....did you see her Hop Project from this week?  The Blooms 'n Buds set makes me smile every time.  I just love all the elements in that set.  The sentiment is from the A Friend Like You.  I stamped it on a Lacy Scallop Circle.  The embossing folder is from my stash.


Funny thing, the front is chock full of all those die cuts that I had to decorate the interior to keep it somewhat balanced.  No problems there, check out the cute Mouse Mail stamps.


I stamped the outside of the envelope using Alphabetical:


Jen, my friend, I'm here for you...whenever you need anything💚

Next up is Laurie Schmidlin!  If you get lost along the way, the hop listing is below!
