A Bird in the Hand

Hello everyone, I thought I would do a quick post before heading off to bed - it is only 11:30pm and an early night for me - gee, I hope I am not awake at 5am!! LOL!

I made this card for two special challenges and they are a bit inter-related for me - this first in the Twisted Sister Challenge to make a get well or an encouragement card and the second was to honour this week's Featured Stamper over on SCS, who is none other than my dear Twisted Sistah and very dear friend, Pat Smethers.

I have not chosen any particular card to case, but just some 'Pat-isms' have been added to my card!! You can see Pat's amazing gallery herePat - I know how you feel about these little Tilda's and I could not resist making one in honour of you!! (The Lolly Man and I think it is only fitting! LOL!) I have used a number of punches in honour of the hundred's of photo corners and flowers you have punched for me, what a labour of love!!

I have added the gorgeous lace that my Mum sent me - it is from my Great Grandmothers collection, which now resides with my Mum....thanks Mum!!  By the way, my Mum is known as SuperNan over at SCS and has been stamping for around 7 months now - if you get a moment I know she would love it if you sent a little 'luv' her way! 

For the Twisted Sisters Challenge for last Friday, I decided to make a card  for encouragement - this little image just 'lifts my heart' holding that adorable little bird in her hand (I love birds!)    Each Square has been individually paper peirced and the swirl has had shimmer added, with the flower mounted on foam tape, for dimension and of course that gorgeous little 'bling thing' added!

I have to say I was not too sure about this card and had to ask my DH if it was okay, apparently it is - I would love to hear what you think!  Thank you for your lovely comments - you are always so kind - you know I love seeing that you have visited!  God bless you!
