For my Friend, Sigi

I have a friend, whom i admire a great deal on a DT called Dutch Paper Crafts.  Her name is Sigi.  She takes in wildlife and nurtures them and cares for them and then releases them back into the wild.  Of course her "clients" are the wildlife and so she does this for free.  She has written about how she purchases acorns to feed the local squirrels because there isn't enough locally to feed them  She has cages that house birds with broken wings, hand feeds them...and in return they learn to trust and love her.  Who couldn't admire someone like that.
They just went through the worst winter storm, but she was prepared and had her wildlife protected as well.  She also endures physically things that most would not.  She just had surgery done for carpal tunnel and a nerve in her elbow.  She is taking care of her wildlife and all of this with one hand.  One of the things she is doing to make money to help care for the wildlife, is to make handmade flowers by hand...each petal.  I told her i would put up link for her on my blog to help sell her flowers. (see below). My understanding is that she is licensed to care for wildlife.

Meanwhile, i made this card for Sigi because it reminds me of the love she has for her wildlife friends:
 I am entering this card into Mo's Challenge Blog- "Anything Goes"
and into this challenge:
Forever Friends- February Monthly challenge, Animals, butterflies, birds

Here is one of Sigi's flower sample packs that she sells for $40...you can request colors and styles. Here is a link to her blog where you can write her.
