A Little Birdie Told Me.....


Good morning everyone!! Hope you are all well and have found a little time to stamp this week!!! We had some stressful news yesterday...our good friend from the Ft. Worth area had some chest pain so they rushed him to the hospital. He had 4 stents placed in the Cath Lab which eliminated the pain and prevented a massive heart attach!!! Life is sooo fragile, my friends!!! We went to see him yesterday and got back this afternoon.....Terry went home this morning ready to change his life style with a healthier diet and exercise!! My hubby and I are committed to a healthier lifestyle, too.....I want to live long enough to see my great, great grandchildren!!! Anyway....

I made this card last weekend and finally had a chance to post it.....the images are from Our Craft Lounges Tweet Thang set and the paper is from Echo Park's A Walk in the Park. I used the Mojo Monday #243 sketch and the sewing, twine, and button finishes it off.

This is also for Ruby's Rainbow Challenge to use things with wings, Stampin Doodles get outside challenge, and The Perfect Sentiment anything goes challenge to use a sentiment on the front.

Thanks for stopping by....have a great day!!!

Joan, I'm sorry to hear about your friend. I'm happy to hear that he's on the road to recovery at home and is commited to a healthier lifestyle. We are doing the same at our house. Bought ourselves some exercise equipment a few weeks ago and do our best to get on each day and eat healthy too. When things like this happen it's always a wake up call for the rest of us.

Your card is too cute! Love all those bright colours!!! You know I love bright! ha! CUTE image too!!

Oh that's so scary about your friend. My dad went through heart issues several years ago and it was a wake-up call to him, too. Good for you and your hubby for committing to be healthier. :)

Love your coloring on this card, girlie. Great job with the sketch, too...I love how you added twine to the flag element.
