A card from my sis'

Well technically, she's not my sister, there's that pesky little 'in-law' appendage there, but for all intents and purposes, Janny is my sister and I love her like one, so I figure that's all that is really required! And today she sent me a card, for no other reason than to tell me that she's so glad I'm her sister-in-law and that she loves me.  I'm sure you can imagine that its arrival in my mailbox (quite aside from the fact that there were no accompanying bills) totally made my day.  My week in fact.

Wanna see it...?!  Behold...........

In all the time that I have owned this hostess set A Little Bit of Happiness myself, never have I thought to cut out the stamped images from the different stamps and comine them in a shape other than the long thin one that they naturally exist in!  How cool is that?!

Here are some close ups of the beautiful colouring in, precision cutting and gorgeous decorative touches that I was just in awe of when I opened it....

You will note that Janny now also has her very own watermark that I created just this afternoon, which means with any luck you will be seeing more of her stunning creations right here.

Anyone want to weigh in with a little encouragement...?  :)
