Just Us Girls 123 technique week, PDCC118, SSD114 and a really incredible story..


Hey friends!  It's the weekend and I am excited to share the latest in challenges from Just Us Girls but even better than that, I was inspired to combine a few great challenges this week in order to better get the word out about this amazing kid named Sebastian and his sweetheart of a teacher.  Often times in blogland we come across stories that strike a chord and stir the emotions...this is one such story as the quote at the top of my post first caught my eye at Amy's blog and led me to Sebastian's story.  Spare a moment and read about this special boy and you will be inspired by him along with his sweet, caring teacher.




All that inspo led to this card which I am hoping will bring some sunshine via snail mail to Sebastian.

If you are looking for more button embellished inspiration look no further than
