From Lisa to Patty

I received this lovely card on Thursday last week but we were heading right back out to the cabin so I didn't have time to scan and post it then. There are elements of lace/sheer fabric in the background and then paper cut lace out front with a beautiful silver quill pen. I love the added touch of a monkey riding a polar bear (must have been made for me!) The post office got a few smudges on it, but it still came through quite beautifully. There is a verse on the back from a poem by John Donnne
"Blasted with sighs, and surrounded with tears, Hither I come to seek the spring. And at mine eyes, and at mine ears, Receive such balms as else cure everything."

There are some smudges on the poem, so hope that came through correctly. Another hint of SPRING! I am so ready!


  1. I am glad to know it made it. I was hopeful that nothing would be torn off. Happy Spring.

  2. Lovely! And fun!
    I expect Patty has to wait a little bit longer for Spring than we.......

    Great card!

  3. what a joyful card. love the bear -just in the right place too. we are all holding our breath right now but it is in the air-for sure.

  4. Wow, I can't believe the feather stayed on!!
    What a beauty..and the quote is so hopeful ;)

  5. what a beauty! Spring is coming!
