Priscillastyles Heart Wreath and Birds MMSC114

This card is for Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - MMSC114 - which can be found here: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/. I used 2 different digis from priscillastyles store - http://priscillastyles-store.blogspot.com/. The pre-embossed card was sprayed with gold Shimmer spray. The scalloped circle is cut with my Nestabilities from gold metallic cs, and the doily also cut with nesties. The leaves are from green metallic cs, and cut with my new Stampin' Up leaves die that my dear friend, Amy, sent me for my birthday. Thank you, Amy!!! I ran the green metallic cs through my Sizzix "Evergreen" Textured Expressions embossing folder before cutting the leaves out. Colored the wreath, birds and flowers with Copics. This was a fun card to make. Hope you like it. I know "pink" birds are kinda funky, but I like them!! hehe tfl

Cards and Prayers Needed Please

Special Request from my Sister:

For all of you that have and continue to participate in the "Do it for Deb" card campaign I have another special request to add...

My Dearest Mother-in-law has been sick and needs all of the care, support, love and prayers that you can offer! She is praying for a miracle and needs our help!

If you have not met Mom...she is an angel that has been such a blessing in my life! I could not have asked for a better Mom. She is kind, she is gentle, she is selfless, she is giving, she is warm, she is strong, she is beautiful, she is a smile on a day when you feel like you will never smile again and a warm hug that comforts you.

As with the campaign for Deb, I am requesting that prayers of well wishes are made and that if you could take a small moment of your time and effort to write a card, send an inspirational quote, send well wishes her way...it would be greatly appreciated.

The card can be on a simple piece of paper, handwritten...the only cost is a moment of your time and 44 cents for the stamp. Small efforts on our part can and do make a HUGE difference to others!! Send these out as soon as possible so she can feel your support.

The address to send cards/inspirational support to is:

Carol Perry
Caring for Carol Campaign
9 Smith Street
Bristol, Rhode Island 02809

For all of you who are and will participate in the "Do it for Deb" campaign and the "Caring for Carol Campaign"--thank you from the bottom of my heart! I am always humbled by all of your love and support for myself and those I love. May the kindness you offer others always come back to you!

With love and well wishes...
