Thinking of You Card with For The Birds from Stampin' UP!

Good morning friends. Happy Monday and I hope you had a nice weekend. I had a busy Sunday after I got home from church and got a nap in to get rid of my headache, I worked on my swap cards for my down line meeting Tuesday night and I have been wanting to stamp a card for my girlfriend that has cancer. Please stop for a minute and say a prayer for Cindy if you would. She has not been doing good. She lives in my home town and I can't wait to get back to see her. We were having storms around here last night. I have had the TV on watching the NBS finals (GO OKLAHOMA) but they lost. The weather had been threatening thunderstorms with hail. YIKES! I went to bed after the news so not sure what happened. I was out like the light. I will find out when I go to work this morning I guess.

On this card I used the top note die and then used one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits to cut out the middle of it matching up the points. Then I stamped one of the darling birds in this wonderful set For The Birds on Whisper White card stock that I snailed down under the cutout in the top note. Isn't this nest cute? I just cut up thin strips of  card stock and used Tom Bow glue to glue them down and I used my markers to color the design. I thought it came out so sweet. YILM! I know Cindy will think it is cute. She deserves cute let me tell you. She has really been through it with cancer. I hate that word by the way.

Here are the details:
Stamp Sets: For the Birds, Sweet Essentials
Card Stock: Not Quite Navy, River Rock, Whisper White, Tangerine Tango
Inks: Tangerine Tango Ink Pad and Marker, Not Quite Navy, River Rock Marker
Tools: Big Shot, Top Note Die, Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies, Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Sponge, Dimensionals, Tombow Glue.
I better get going to work so I hope you all have a blessed day. Thank you for stopping by and hope you have time to create something cute.    Hugs, Bev
