Today I have a card for a friend that I have known for over 30 years. I miss her terribly. She is just one of those people that makes you laugh, and always makes you feel welcome.
My friend loves animals. Before we moved to Arizona, she had two small dogs and a bird. Whenever I see a bird or bird cage, I think of Maria and especially her bird. I decided today to pull out my Tim Holtz' "caged bird". I hadn't planned on aging the paper, but when I was putting all of the pieces together, I decided to give it a distressed look.
I hope you enjoy!
