What a nice crafty suprise!


.
Who doesn't love receiving post through the letterbox that isn't a bill? Well today i had the nicest of surprises when i opened a letter to find a beautiful handmade card from the children at Kids Company. Some of you may remember i knitted some scarves for the kids last winter, and this was a lovely thank you from them. :)
.
They'd obviously put a lot of work into the card, a gorgeous seascape theme to it and lots of little details that outshine my cards lol. I love this spray they've used on the gold card, it would also look good in a snow scene...
.

.
The little sailing boat is just great! Almost makes you think you are there under that blue sunny sky with the big white clouds...
.

.
On the back of the card it says, "Dear Calvin, thank you so very much for knitting warm wears for our children, you made them very happy last winter."
.
Makes all those years of me getting stressed whilst trying to learn to knit worthwhile doesn't it?
.
So a huge thank you to the children at Kids Company (and of course the staff too) for sending this, it really has made my day. :)
.
For anyone else that is interested in making or sending donations or items for the kids, my friend Nicki's website explains it all in great detail.
.
Bye for now...

Hi Calv
That is indeed a fabulous card they did for you - I knew there was something afoot but had no idea it was to be such a work of art :-) I'll send your link to my friend at Kids Co ... she'll love telling the kids it has arrived. Hope you're all keeping well, much love and many hugs, Nicki xxxxxx
