Sending Big Hugs

My coworker who has cancer just went through surgery last week to remove as much as possible, and then will resume chemotherapy to destroy the rest of it.  Up until the surgery she was in the office working every day, leaving in the afternoons when necessary to get chemo.  She said even though the chemo wore her out, it would just make her crazy to just sit home & worry about it,  I think she's pretty amazing!  Anyway...I thought this might bring a smile to her face.  I stamped the purse/bag made by TooMuchFunRubberStamps onto some lightly colored designer paper twice, then fussy cut them both out & glued them together.  The flowers & leaves were die cut out of my scraps with My Favorite Things Stitched Flowers that came in one of their kits I bought a while back.  The Sending Big Hugs sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp's Big Scripty Greetings.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!
