We Support You Day 4 - Indelible Pillow

Welcome to the Day 4 of We Support You Blog hop. I first wanted to thank these two amazing ladies, Mdm Samm for organizing this hop and our wonderful cheerleader for the hop Pat from Line in the Scrapatch continuously cheering us throughout the hop.

This is for a great cause and I made this pillow for my close friend Lillian who was diagnosed with breast cancer few years back. She has been doing a great job fighting it and this is to support her.

I am celebrating 3 year anniversary for my blog and couple of other reasons as well. Here is the link to the giveaway on my blog, click here.
