When I saw cactus listed as one of the flowers for strength and courage, I thought about this infrequently used image.
Colored image with markers mounted on Cuttlebugged papers, stickled, decorated the envelope and VOILA!

Beautiful! This cactus image is a favorite, though I hardly use it! I had no idea that the cactus is know for strength and courage, though it seems fitting! Kathleen will love this beauty, especially since there are no prickles on these cacti!
It's good to see you at the Tea party, Phyllis. You and your work have been missed!

So nicely colored and thank you for selecting the image. When you think about it, those protective barbs, that say 'look, but better not touch', is a good analogy for Kathleen as her body must get ready for the next step toward health.
This is sure to bless her!

Phyllis I love your flowering cactus. My DH grows so many different cactus that have the most gorgeous flowers like your card does. This is fantastic and sure to bring a smile to Kathleen. Love it! TFS :0)

Thank you so much Phyllis! Your wonderful "sunny" cacti make me think of my time when I lived in Arizona. What a gorgeous stamp and your coloring is beautiful!!! As always, love that you made your envelope to match! I agree with Susie, and have missed your "Viola" too!!! Thank you again!
