My Besties Big Hugs Card

Morning Guys this post is of a card I've made for a fellow My Besties Member of The My Besties Swap Group on FB who is going through a bad time at the moment so I wanted to make her a card to let her know she isn't on her own as all the fellow Besties swap group are here for her and felt by sending a unexpected card it would make her smile as its a hug in a card.

Here is what I have made and sent all the way to Australia from England United Kingdom.

I do hope she likes it.
