Fabric Postcard Gift
The fact, however, is that while many acquaintances are made, there are a couple of people with whom (well, I'll just speak for myself here versus in generalizations) I have felt a connection...a feeling of knowing them for years...knowing they would indeed, if we lived near to one another, would become 'real' friends. For me, one of those connections is with Sandra at Croque-Choux, and the only reason we aren't hanging out laughing together or creating together is because I live in California and she lives in Paris. I love her fabric collages. She does a lot of Artist Trading Cards (ATC's). I posted this one of hers back in November (because I was so moved by it), and she wrote to me and offered to send me a gift.
Today I received this fabric postcard.

Sincerely (I am not just saying this to suck up or be polite) SINCERELY this is one of the most amazing things I have ever received. She must have a sixth sense, or a psychology degree or something, because she couldn't have chosen anything more appropriate. I am all about natural elements and color. Sunshine, and butterfly symbolism, and the written word. It's so perfect. The back is also fabric, and has an inked message and two lovely stamps from France.
Thank you so much, Sandra. I love it.
