Chickadee for Aunt Toni

My Aunt Toni has always been a sweet person.  She would take four of us to her house for a week when she doesn't have any kids of her own - which is a big undertaking.  I remembering being homesick and she was so nice about it.  My uncle Jay and her have a gorgeous island off Minnesota where my family spent time last year.  My son enjoyed the fishing and my daughter enjoyed lying in the sun as well as going for a boat ride.  Aunt Toni would send my kids books for their birthdays and Christmas as well as jelly-bellies...and she continues to spoil them with some cash and jelly-bellies.  She has a "thing" for chickadees so I made this card that I plan to send for her birthday in February.  I just purchased this stamp specific to make this card since she has treated us all so special, I wanted to return the favor.

Your cards are all wonderful. Your Mo one turned out great. I had an Aunt like that too. She taught me to sew when I was homesick. Thanks so much for joining us at MO's this week.
