Hello Birdie

With this card I am combining 2 challenges....the first one is from Friday Mashup and the theme is "birds". I love birds!! I have feeders all over my yard and love to watch the birds eat and interact. Here at my place I get a lot of black capped chickadees, nuthatches and hairy and downy woodpeckers. I could spend the entire day outside just watching the birds and taking photos of them, and I have, 'cause thats how I roll :P

The second challenge is a sketch challenge from the Stamping 411 blog. I love this sketch...simple, classic and easy to work with!

My stepmom loves birds and since my dad died I try and send her cards as often as I can. Shortly after my dads funeral she left to spend some time with her mom in FL and I just like to let her know that I love her and miss her, and that I appreciate everything she did for my dad. Taking care of a person with cancer day in and day out is a hard, tiring job but she was there for my dad everyday, and she needs to know how much that means to me, and how much she means to me! Therefore this card was made specifically with her in mind and will be in the mail for FL tomorrow!
