A Card for a Friend

I recently spent a few days at the summer home
 of a very gracious friend, and made this Thank You note for her.
Her last name is Reynolds and this is her nickname for her home on Cape Cod.

I wanted the card to reflect the beautiful hydrangeas
 and roses around her house.
Hope she liked it!!

Art With a Heart

Recently I was searching for paper artists online, and I came across the beautiful work of  cut paper artist Vanessa Stone. After looking at her creations, I went to her blog and read about an idea she had to give away a piece of her artwork in exchange for the recipient donating something to a favorite charity!

I was fortunate enough to be the first to respond, and received this lovely papercut all the way from England!! In return, I am making a donation to my local food pantry, which is always in need of support.

I think this is a wonderful idea, and I urge my readers to visit Vanessa's blog, see her wonderful work, and look forward to her next gift offering, which she hopes to do monthly.

Many thanks, Vanessa!
