This is my all time favorite hello card. I used to make it all the time with Bunch of Bugs. I haven't really taken the time to recreate it with Bugs and Hugs until today's challenge. Thanks Jen for the fun challenge! I REALLY need to stick to that limited time thing with all of my challenges.
My 36 year old cousin just passed away this week. He was really a one of a kind person. He was SO FUNNY and loved you (no matter who you are) where you were. He could walk into a room and pick out the hurting people (even if they were really good at disguising their pain) and his focus became one of putting a smile on your face as well as in your heart.
Jen, REALLY, thanks for the challenge. I wouldn't have thought of this card if it hadn't been for the challenge. I will be sending this to "Tippy's" older brother in a few days to remind him that we are all thinking of him and we will be saying "hello" to Tip one day.

I am just viewing this in May posted as the sample for today's sketch challenge. My deepest sympathies on losing your cousin so young. Your card is what I call a perfect card. The design is simple used with dramatic color to make the impact. TFS Kathy
