Hi there! Just another quick post today with a sweet songbird stamped out for a friend's birthday! This card was found on the Papertrey Ink's capture blog by one of their designers...I changed a few things but the overall design was inspired by them.
I was so happy to make this in one of my very favorite color combinations...red on white! A very dear friend from way back in 7th grade is having a birthday at the end of this month. She called me out of the blue about a week ago and when I asked her how she was...she told me that she was fine...now. Then she went on to explain she had suffered a brain bleed back in February and had been in Intensive care for two weeks before she was able to go home. Her Mom stayed with her and took care of her for a couple of weeks after that. Her lightheartedness accompanied by the heavy news left me at a loss for words...it is always hard to know what to do or say after a crisis has occurred, and been recovered from. I just said I was so happy she was fine now and that she was here and I valued her friendship. I won't forget her birthday this year...she loves the color red, so this was made especially for her! The little Happy Birthday to you stanza is actually meant to be a banner...but after not having much success cutting them out evenly; I opted to use it as a background stamp and love the way it turned out. A little prima flower perched on some natural twine completes the songbird ensemble.
