I received some beautiful one of a kind works of art for my birthday, and wanted to spend this week showcaseing some of them. Some days we get so caught up in the actual making of a card, that we might forget how much sheer pleasure and joy it gives the recipient to receive it in the mail!
Thanks ladies, for your kindness! Your talent inspires me, your thoughts touch me, and your generosity overwhelms me!
This first card is from my wonderful friend, Dawn (flowergal36)...Dawn knows my love for Tilda's and sent this adorable Edwin (is Edwin a cousin, a brother, not sure??) having fun in the fishing pond! I love this, it has real fishies swimming across the page and what looks like a nautical knot on the border...Dawn even decorated the inside of this cutie. I am so blessed to have gotten to know Dawn this past year, and find out we share much in common besides our stamping interests!! Isn't this such a fun cheerful card?? Thank you, Dawn!
The house mouse in pink tulle is from my fun friend, Pat Smethers. Pat is so loving and exuberantly shares it with friends...this card touched me with the sweet image, the pink tulle, and her stitching is making me itching to try it!! I have met Pat when she came to Colorado with Shirley (wannabcre8tive) and we stamped together, drove up to the mountains with some other stamping friends...the first thing I noticed was her huge heart and loving words that she sprinkles her conversation with! No wonder Pat is a favorite person of mine!
The second card is from one of my dear dork sisters, Linda R. Linda is a new SU demo and her work just explodes with new creative ideas...I love this beauty in pink and her background border just makes it so soft and romantic! Thank you, Linda!
I will share the next 3 tomorrow, thanks so much for stopping in!!
