Sing a Song of Thanks

Hello! :) I don't know about you, but my week sure has flown by! I think the next couple will too. We have a lot on our calendar. My son, Justin and 14 other young men from DeKalb High School recently received first place in the midwest region acapella competion. They are now one of four groups that will be competing at the national level in New York this month! We are so proud of them! They work countless hours practicing and perfecting their songs.

Mr. Travis Erikson is their Director and he has been such an inspiration and encouragement to the group. But there is also another person, behind the scenes, who does a tremendous amount for our boys. She's the music secretary, Angel Smith. Angel has been on the computer and the phone for two weeks now, finding plane and hotel reservations and looking for things for the boys to do while in New York. She's also been working on press releases and fundraising and keeping all of us parents up to date on things. I have come to appreciate her so much and wanted to let her know by sending her a card.

My new Inkadinkado Branchful of Birds stamp and Cosmo Cricket Fleuriste paper from Jacksonbelle Embellishments were the perfect combination for my design. The birds are embossed with clear EP and Chocolate Chip Craft ink. The saying is straight from the Fleuriste 8x8 paper pad. The faux stitching was done with my Crafter's Tool Kit from SU! And how 'bout those Dew Drops!? This is my first time using them and they are fab!!! I used SU! Crystal Effects to adhere them. (It only takes a drop!) After assembling my card, I sprayed the whole thing with Sugar Cookie Glimmer Mist. Love it!

With all of the details in it, this was such a fun card to make! Hope Angel likes it. :) Thanks for visiting! ~Patti

I think you've been holding out on me, I didn't know about Glimmer Mist. I can't wait to get some!

I love this card, I really love the birds.
