CASology Week 130: Friend

Without getting really sappy again today, I love being given the opportunity to say thank you to all of you who have become so dear to me... you know who you are. I also hope this little card I made for CASology's Friend challenge conveys just how much joy each of you has brought to my life & my heart:

"Joy-full heart"
 
A few sweet ladies made this card possible, but it will be sent today to another who recently sent me a darling bit of happy mail, just when I needed it.

A big thanks to CASology for your huge inspiration with just one little word!

Oh, you used that little chickadee in such a delightful way! Love that her beak is holding the heart and that cross stitch embossing has that same sweet innocent style.
I hope to get to play in this week's challenge!

Talk about sweet and I'm so jealous of the little birdies legs....wish mine were that long and skinny! Simply adorable and really like the stitched hearts, they add such a lovely touch. Just beautiful!

This is so sweet and adorable. So many great touches, and yet still so CAS. Love your heart in the middle of Joy. That is really clever, as well as your textured heart background. And, of course, I am in love with those sweet birds and like how you used just the one here. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

The THANK YOU is reflected back to you, Michele! You have made so many of my days far more 'joyful' than I thought possible, simply 'spending time' with me; something I treasure immensely! Your card: ultra cute! The long-legged bird, the happy-patterned joy, the heart embossing (love that!) and the wee heart...love it alllll!
Hugs~c

If it's not you bringing joy to others, Michele, this darling bird will. You know how much I love him - and his little friends, too.

Sharron said...

Aw, this is just too adorable!! Where did you get the textured background paper? Those hearts are such a sweet addition. And I LOVE your little chickadee with the heart!
