  11. Amy, what a grand card! I love the bird, birds are my most favorite thing ever to craft with. Thank you so much for the birthday wishes and kind words and putting a hop together in my honor. Things have been super, super crazy (not in a good way) so I haven't been by to see your most fabulous creations, and I think I need to take the time to catch up...
