Thanks for Caring

Well, no more promises, guesstimates, whatever, regarding how often I will post.  This time it is health issues keeping me away.  Perhaps if I just let life happen, I will be able to get back in the groove!
Today's card is for a very special donor who gave a nice sized donation to the animal rescue for which I volunteer (Out of the Woods).  She doesn't live within a 1000 miles of us, but saw fit to make a contribution that will provide medical care for a number of our babies.  We are so fortunate to have such generous donors, and as the donor/memorial coordinator, I try to make special cards for our special donations.
I used the sketch from MOJO Monday 347.
I am also entering:
Kit & Clowder - flowers
I used stash paper, MFT flower and leaf dies, Lil Inker stitched circle, and Verve sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Margaret!

Well, I guess I wasn't so ready to get back to blogland on a regular basis just yet.  I've been dealing with some medical issues for the last month and that has left me with little energy for much other than just getting through the day.  However, over the past couple of days, I managed to put together a birthday card for my dear friend, Margaret, who, BTW, has become my advisor for all things in the supplement realm.  I am not having much confidence in conventional medicine at this point.  Those guys need lessons in listening and communicating!  Ok, enough of that, on to the card.

But first, let me share a photo of a cute little cardinal baby.  There are actually 3 in the nest, but only one looked at the camera!  This little guy's parents made a nest right out our patio door in a ligustrum shrub.  We watch them coming and going all day long, as we have a feeder visible from our kitchen, and a short diagonal flight from their nest.  

This is the first time we have had cardinal babies!

Now for the card...

You will notice that the sentiment says "belated".  Well, that's because her BD is tomorrow but her card is still with me.  Her presents have not arrived yet, so I procrastinated with the card since it will go in the package with the gifts.  So technically, it's not late yet, and she will see it on time, but it won't be in her hands until later!  I had expected her gifts to arrive earlier in the week and then I would expedite them to her, but that just didn't happen.  It'll be okay because it's stamping stuff and that makes it worth the wait! Ha!
