Wow - What a Card!!

Look what came in the mail for me. HWNSNBP brought the mail up and HE was grinning ear to ear. "You got something from someone in Colorado" he said. I told him that it was probably a birthday RAK because it's March. And he told me he didn't think so, then handed me this huge envelope. Well, not that huge. It was a manilla envelope that was flat but lumpy at the same time.

I saw the return address and smiled - it was from my Teapot Tuesday friend Cindy. She sent me the card that she made the week she featured the teapot that I sent her. Inside the envelope that card was carefully wrapped in some advertising posters from "The Egg & I" restaurant (which I think she might work at and if I ever get to Colorado will be sure to visit).

She wrote this in her note: "Bet you never got a cardboard card before! Snort"

Well Cindy, no I haven't ever gotten a cardboard card before and I'm thrilled that you treated me to my first! It's absolutely beautiful in person. The cardinal and the berries as well as the edges of the holly are all clear embossed. And the textures are simply out of this world. She must have used a ton of dimensionals to raise all those horizontal bars, let alone cut them out and color and wrap with twine.

I am so touched to receive such a work of (he)art. Thank you Cindy!!!!
