When Life Gives You Lemons Make Lemonade -View finder Card! AND WINNER ANNOUNCED

I have a good friend who just found out that her husband is being deployed to Afghanistan. When I spoke to her she was very positive, but I know deep down she is upset and scared. She has two little children ontop of it all. She lives close by me, but her family lives very far away. SO she's going to be alone.  I wanted to send her a little card just to let her know I'm here for her.

I got the inspiration for this card from Melissa at Thank you so much Melissa.  Melissa puts up tutorials from Youtube every week and they are so fun and inspirational. I fell in love with this View Finder card because I knew I could use my new stamps and make an SVG file for this. I'm gifting this to all of you as a thank you for being a follower. Here is the original Youtube tutorial if you want to make one like Dawn (she's the best)with punches. But I knew all you SVG fans would love an easy SVG file! Enjoy! :) I changed some things around like using the scallop circle rather than just a plain circle and I made it a lot larger. Hope you like it! I would love to see what you make and comments are always great. I have been contemplating whether to continue free files or not. Let me know if you like this and like the free files? :)

This file is not to be sold it is for personal use ONLY. It will be available for a limited time.
