Christmas cards are such a delightful part of Christmas , well so many events happen during the season but this is one that gets to be written about today. I do love sending them out and receiving them is a treat. Seeing what the postman brings us in the mail is like getting a present. The e cards are also a treat and we did get a beautiful one or two of those. Such technology for today. OK a bit of silliness-do you think when the Indians sent smoke signals around the Southwest that they would have ever thought about the Internet sending the e cards? Can you imagine how pretty they would have been floating in the sky? I mean they created some pretty awesome pics in the sides of stones. OK, sorry about that had to stray a tad there.
If you remember I had posted about the White Donuts and how that sharing of them helped me find some long lost Aunts and Uncles and Cousins over in England and Australia . Well in the mail I received one beautiful card, not that we ever get an ugly one and I think the ones that send them to us know our personality and they all are perfect for us. I save everyone of them and look at them during the year also. I just had to share this card, we have never seen one like this and so beautifully sewn with jewel toned threads and the sine of them. You know how I love bling.
This is from cousin Janet in England and I asked her if it was OK to post this. I just had to share it with you all. So Merry Christmas to all and please enjoy this card.
This is the whole card, I couldn't believe it when we opened it, the sewing skills it took and the hours to create this.
Trying to get a different view so you can see all the stitching done with love. What a talent.
One more view all sewn by hand and on paper.
One more view.
So there you go, my little treat to you all. We are wishing you all a Merry Christmas and my goodness what will 2012 bring to us? I can bet some wonderful experiences. I don't know if I will post again until 2012 but if not have a Happy New Year and thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world. xoxoxox
