I LOVE receiving hand made cards! Well who doesn't, but I think as a cardmaker you perhaps realise more than non-crafters the thought, effort and care that goes into the creation of a card. Is there anything nicer than opening a surprise envelope to reveal a beautiful, unique card made with you in mind? I don't think so! Talk about life's simple pleasures.
I've been lucky enough to recieve a few cards just like this recently from two of my loveliest blogging friends:
I'm very belated in posting this but it's well worth the wait - this is from Steph. Isn't it stunning!
but wait....she's such a honey that she sent me this as well: (sorry the photo's not great)
A selection of Raspberry Fizz products from Papertrey Ink! (And yep you can spy a matching Copic marker there too - and it's a colour I didn't have!) Isn't this THE most delicious, happy colour you've ever seen? Bless her, she knew I couldn't survive until my order made it's way across the Atlantic! Thanks Steph - you're a sweetheart!
Then last week Jo sent me these along with a fabulous collection of cards for the Marie Curie Appeal we're running over at In Love With Stamping.
The first is a birthday card using that yummy cupcake stamp (and you should see the glitter on those babies!)
and also this - I love the design, so simple and elegant. Thanks Jo, you too are an absolute sweetheart!!
Thank you so much for putting a big smile on my face ladies - I'm so lucky to have met you! Go check out their fabulous blogs NOW!!!!
