Brave, Strong and Courageous

I hope you are all having a happy Valentine's Day!  The best part of  mine was a sweet cuddle nap with my 8 month old.  Those are getting more and more infrequent and I cherish them SO much!
I haven't had much time to craft lately but I threw together a couple of super simple Valentines cards last night with Unity's Everything Love set (which is currently ON SALE)!


This next card is one I made when I was still recovering from skin cancer and reconstructive surgery on my nose and cheek under my eye.  I love creating, it feels therapeutic to me and making this made me feel better.  Wednesday I gave it to someone who needed it more than me.  My son has a great Speech Therapist/teacher and she had the same surgery/complications as I did shortly before I went through it.  Today she is having a second round of reconstructive surgery to help fix some of the problems she is still experiencing.


I used the Strength and Dignity KOTM which is one of my all time faves (also on sale now)!  The inside sentiment is an Itty Bitty.
Can't wait to look through all of the Friends With Flair entries this week, you ladies are all so creative and inspiring!

Lovely cards. Take care of yourself. I had melanoma in August. Had to have 2 surgeries but in the end all worked out okay. It is a scary event. Best of luck to you.

I'm sure your son's speech therapist really appreciated that lovely card. I hope you heal quickly.
