I've made this card for my mom to send her a little bit of Spring her way.
Cherry Blossom Card with Envelope
I know my mom will appreciate this card and the time spent making it, with her being a major crafter as well. Actually, I like the card so much that I have a hard time sending it off ! :)
And isn't it nice to receive a handwritten note from time to time? I don't know about you, but I LOVE to receive mail.
It sounds a bit old fashioned in this time of the internet with email, facebook and twitter and me being a software engineer. But a handwritten letter is just something special - the postage stamp, the post office stamp, the paper for the envelope and the letter or card, the embellishments, perhaps even some photos - it's just a great treasure trove that allows me to connect with the sender.
When was it your last time you wrote a letter? Perhaps Spring is a good opportunity to send a friend a nice little note?
BTW, you can purchase the crochet Cherry Blossom card pattern (includes a template for the envelope as well) to make one yourself.
