Encouragement - Hugs

Hello, Friends!
I was recently encouraged to use this die by a friend who has the new release to it, so here 'tis!

What a fun card, huh!  The die sentiment wraps from each side to interlock, and give a sweet hug to the recipient!  This was quick and easy to make, just following Jennifer McGuire's wonderful instructional video.  I did make myself a "template" like she suggested, and put it in the envelope with the dies for future use (how smart is this woman?)!

So one card was sent to my "encourager" as encouragement, and the other sent to Daughter #2 since I miss her so!

Products - 
   Die:  Concord & 9th Hugs Cardfront (NBUS)
   Paper:  PP from MS Botanical 12 x 12

And since I couldn't find a good challenge to fit into (since I totally missed the SSS Hip to be Square), this'll have to stand on its own for today.  Thanks for stopping by!

ETA:  Yikes! I forgot Darnell's NBUS #7 Challenge!  I'm heading there now...

Hugs (literally),
