The card above came from my blogging friend Dana. Dana lives in Florida now, having moved there from Indiana a few years ago. And did I ever mention that she is a published author? No? Well, yes she is. She wrote a book entitled "Treadwell". I've read it and let me say that it was one of those books that captures you and doesn't let you go until the absolute end. I highly recommend it and can't wait for the sequel or prequel or whatever she writes next!
Dana is getting back into making cards and boy, it's like she never took a break. Her cards are wonderfully thought out and I'm so pleased that she shared this one with me. Thanks Dana.
The next two cards were Birthday RAK's from Splitcoast members Rita and Heather. What a wonderful surprise it is to receive a handmade card out of the blue from someone you don't even know. That they spent time creating something to share for your birthday sure does make one feel special. And they are so pretty!
I also recently received mail from New Zealand. One of my "pig ladies" (and I use that endearment with the most love) Sushine not only decorated the envelope she sent with a multitude of flying pigs...
inside was this little lovely.........
You can't tell from the picture, but the head wiggles! Sooooo stinkin' cute! Thank you Sunshine! And thank you for all the extra wings you also sent along.
From across the Atlantic came this beautiful card from my blogging friend Sabrina. Just look at all that detail, right down to the rainbow strips behind the image panel. What a happy card!
See how she adds that sparkly outline. I think she's "Goldilocks'd" it. What do I mean by that? It's not too much and it's not too little, it's Just Right!
Sabrina also made me something else I'll be sharing in a few days. Right now, before too many days passed, I wanted to thank everyone for the birthday wishes. Unfortunately I've been sick all week with bronchitis and a sinus infection so I'm wondering if I can have a birthday do-over next week?
