Cards from Suki and Patty

These arrived this weekend!!!! The first on is from Suki
On the back:

Some say it was a pear Eve ate.
Why else the shape of the womb,
or of the cello
Whose single song is grief for the parent tree?
Why else the fruit itself
tawny and sweet
which your lover
over breakfast
lets go your pear- shaped breast
to reach for?

Linda Pastan

Isn't this just great al together?
Love the card Suki!

This one is from Patty
Done in Scherenschnitte!
A lovely delicate fan on a handcut card!

On the back:

"Make new friends, but keep the old ones.
One is silver and the other is gold."

Thanks a lot Patty and Suki!


  1. These are so different, so beautiful.

  2. Glad it made it safely without the butterfly coming off! Suki's is beautiful - I love those colors.

  3. I am such a huge fan of Suki's art style. I love every bit of this card front and back. Love that sexy juicy poem.

    Patty's has an old fashioned style that appeals as well. And an old fashioned poem that rings true to me today@]!

  4. Oh, both are so wonderful! I used to collect pears so that card would have been perfect for me.
    I started collecting them when I becamse a 'full-figured' gal. I thought it would help me with my body image! I ended up with at least 80 of them. I finally boxed them up because I was sick of dusting them ;)

    Patty, your cut paper is lovely!
