A Very Special Card!

Hi guys! Well, after a frustrating day of not being able to post anything here on the blog, or comment on any other blogs, the people running Blogger have finally got it working! So onto today's post!

I received a nice message awhile back from Kathy Racoosin. She was thanking me for often commenting on her blog and wanted to send me a card. Of course I jumped at the chance! I mean, we all know that Kathy's cards are not just cards, but works of art! So I went out to get the mail the other day, and there was an envelope from Kathy. I ran (literally) into the house and opened it up. I could not believe my eyes! I know many of you will remember seeing this card in the Flickr pool. It is the most fantastic card ever, and I cannot believe it's actually mine now! Just look at this masterpiece!



I am telling you, it is so amazing! I tried to capture all its beauty by taking a few more pictures. The love and hard work that went into creating this card is truly spectacular! Wish you could all see it in person! The details of the stamping, coloring, stitching, paper piercing, dimension, etc, etc....are just so cool! And I love the colors!








The inside is fabulous too! Just look at this perfect stitching!





I want to thank Kathy for sending this card to me! I love looking at it, everyday in my craft room! Thanks Kath! Hugs to you!

Glad you all stopped by today! Hope everyone has a nice week with some time for crafting! :)
