ADFD Sparrows

I know what you're thinking. 
You're thinking I'm trying to hide my last post. Now what makes you think something like that?How do you all know me so well???? lol
OK well I like this card better. I made this for a friend who lost her home in the tornado two weeks ago. Its a Day For Daisies image colored with Prismacolors and set with DCWV papers.

I have used Nesties for the frame and heart shaped sentiment, which was just printed on the computer. I thought I had saved it , in which case I would share it with you but I can't find it so I'll have another look later on.


Ah! Found the sentiment!
Just click to enlarge, right click and save. Or go to my free sentiments box located on sidebar and download from there. Enjoy!
