For Cath (sans CHA) with Love Blog Hop

Good morning my dear blogging friends.  As many of you know, dear Cath over on the Moxie Fab blog couldn't make it to CHA this week due to severe shoulder pain.  Thanks to the super kind Virginia, we thought we'd all have a blog hop to let her know we're thinking of her.  Hopefully she will be on the mend quickly.  In the meantime, we want her to know we're sending prayers and good thoughts her way.

Many happy thoughts to you Cath!  You always bring a smile to our face so this is the least we could do to bring one to yours!  Hope this simple thinking of you card does just that!

Now...be sure to hop on over to Virginia and Lorena's blog to check out all the gorgeous creations of the blog hop participants!
My card is inspired by this week's CAS-ual Friday's Sketch Challenge!

Beautiful layers and textures Lynn, and the colors are so soothing too. I've got to take some lessons from you on color choices, you seem to match them to the reasons for your cards perfectly.

So love the cork die-cut. I have a sheet of cork I haven't used yet, but will now with a tree branch die from Memory box. You give me the best ideas!! I also like the simple frame and all of twine. This is wonderful!
