Birthday for "Sister Dear"!

My only sister celebrates her birthday during the month of July.  I wanted to send her a birthday card to let her know that though we are miles apart, she is in my mind daily.  Now, there are many reasons for this, but three primary reasons are: 1) she is my sister, 2) she is my loving friend, and 3) she is my very first cardmaking mentor.  In other words, she is responsible for my very favorite hobby of my entire lifetime...cardmaking.  She has taught me right from the first novice stages:  how to cut paper; how to save paper while cutting; what glues to use; how to use a tape runner gun; how to make a mini album; how to color and shade, first with woodless colored pencils and then with Copic markers; and finally, she got me involved in Stampin' Up.  She has more patience in her little finger while teaching real beginners than I have in my entire body!  She also has more creative genes in her little finger than I do in my entire body!  So, I thank her and wanted to make her this little birthday card, which says it all "LOVE!"
