Giftie Cards

Most of us can sit by the hours and make greeting cards of our own designs and creativity... What a wonderful feeling when we receive a handmade card from a friend, a messageboard friend, a design team sister. I recently was given two cards from two special friends. I cherish the friends and I shall treasure these cards.
Vicki Purdham is a friend from the Cricut Messageboard. Last year Vicki won a few of my froggy blog candies and because she loved frogs so much, I sent her a few more hand sewn items with darling little froggies on them. When Vicki posted this cute card on the messageboard, she said it was a monkey called Gene who was dancing in the rain. I commented that I had just watched Gene Kelly in "Dancing In The Rain". Vicki knows I will hold her card in a special place so she sent it to me. Isn't this the cutest???

Recently, I sent my friend and design team sister a white tee shirt upon which I had embroidered a butterfly. We had quite a laugh because I actually had to do 3 shirts to get one, and even that one had those surprise flaws. I told her "here's the shirt, but you can only wear it at home".
Sandi has that unique designer mind that never stops. The little butterfly had some puckers between the wings and Sandi saw the potential to create a little painting on the shirt that would hide the flaws. In the package I tossed in one of my wonderful little wristlet camera cases that I sew, and she saw a cute packaging for her iPod. Here is the card and little bookmark that I received from Sandi.
I feel so so so very special.
