This is why I make cards...

Besides the comfort and relaxation I get from colouring, every once in a while I get an email or a phone call from some one who received one of my cards and it may go like this email I got from Kathy this morning...

"I LOVE IT!!! …thanks so much …I was thinking since you had given the first one to Emily I would never see it again!!! …so very excited to see it again …it’s truly beautiful …

..I’m planning on doing a scrapbook with just pictures of children I’ve taken and this card will be in that book!"

Remember this post...when I got the CHOIR with a star on top by Mo Manning I coloured it 'specifically' for my friend Kathy. Then Emily, knowing it was for my friend, asked if I would have time to colour another one for her before the Toronto Creative Festival. Well...heck, it was probably only September and I knew I wouldn't have time to do another one for her on such short notice so I gave that one to her and PROMISED myself I would do another for Kathy. But I never let on! hehehehehe! It was SO hard to keep it a secret!
 

Feeling pretty good right now that I kept my promise and I DID colour another one for Kathy because she is my friend, and my pod mate for 8 hours a day and if ANY image was meant for her, this was the one...and i HAD to do it!
 
I hope it looks as good as the original Kathy!
 
Now I'll be taking a few days off to spend Christmas with my family but I won't be gone long...I should be back next week. Maybe with some stray Christmas cards, maybe something different...who knows! I'm just gonna wing it!
 
Later, Linda! ....have a wonderful Holiday!
