Picasa and Blogger have updated themselves, I see... it took some fumbling around to get this photo uploaded etc. but here it is. I was at Checkered Cottage this week, flipping through some pads of patterened paper and for a split second saw this paper and immediately knew that it would match the motif of this "Songbird" die from PTI.
My blog is called "Creating With Spirit" and I am constantly in wonder at how I am led to put random glimpses of things together to create these miniature works of art to give to someone who could use some kindness or appreciation. This card went to a friend who is caring for her elderly mother. I think it's particularly hard for a care-giver when the person they are taking care is uable to acknowledge the gift of love they are receiving. In this case, my friend's mother has dementia and I thought some acknowledgement and appreciation might be really nice to receive.
