Cardinal Thank You

I'd like to thank MariLynn (Mississippi McGiver) for a fabulous tutorial on making birds out of punches. She was also responsible for the MMTPT68 Challenge this week. Since her teapot had cardinals on it, I thought it only fair to use her tutorial which I have saved for a LONG time!

The WT today was to make a thank you card, regarding what we are thankful for.... so this is really a multiple. I am thankful for RED (of course), and cardinals, and birds in general, but this is specifically for my mom, who also loves cardinals. I am so thankful for her.....the best Mom you could ask for, and the best FRIEND you could hope to have. I send her cards for all sorts of reasons, but this is the perfect reason to send one.....I am so thankful to have HER.

Thanks for looking. Hugs to you all.

No doubt that a card with a cardinal would be one perfect for you, Anne! Better than a blue jay or yellow canary!! Your card is wonderful and I have to go and check out that tutorial. How creative to use punches. Thanks for the lead.
