A Twisted Thank You!

My Mom has been in the hospital for a few days, as you can read from the earlier post.  She is now home but still is not out of the woods just yet.  She still has a clot in her leg and now one in her lungs.  Scary, I know!  But I have faith in God that He will protect her and heal her. 
Anyways, I made this twisted easel card for a lady who attends my parents church and is their neighbor.  My parents have kinda "adopted" her as a daughter, and she considers my parents like they are her "adopted" parents.  Well, every time I needed something for their church to do, like call the prayer chain, make meals for them...she has taken care of that for me.  She is such a blessing to my parents and to me.  The thing is that about a year ago she lost her sister to a blood clot in her leg.  So she was such a blessing to us all in many different ways.  Thank You, Pam!  So I decided that she needed a card to let her know how much she was a blessing to us as a family.  So here is her card!  I just love the red, black and white combination!  Such a striking contrast.  The twisted easel card is so very easy to make!  Not a whole lot of a difference in making the front, the inside is different and small, but that is fine. Saying thank you, is never enough, so a simple small card is perfect. 

I used: 
Red & Black Cardstock
DCWV, The Luxury Stack (I LOVE this paper)
Black ribbon from my stash
My velum flowers using the Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch
Gypsy Wanderings Cartridge for the Sentiment box

Thanks for stopping, and I hope you have great day, today!
