Memories from a Card

Have you ever received a card that induced a memory or brought sweet tears to your eyes? This happened to me twice this November and both cards were made by the same person.

One of my favorite quotes is from Earl Hamner, Jr., creator of The Walton’s. He said, “A mountain has no need for people, but people do need mountains. We go to them for their beauty, for the exhilaration of standing closer to mysterious skies, for the feeling of triumph that comes from having labored to reach a summit.” How true this is in my heart.

Card #1

Deb put a wonderful sentiment at the bottom of the card which said, “Merry Christmas from (the state she moved to)”. I felt I should crop it off for her privacy.

I met Deb just before she moved out of state and I’m so glad we’ve kept in touch. Recently she sent a lovely Christmas card. I’m sure she made it because she loves mountains, but she had no idea how much the mountains are a part of my life. Her card brought a touch of homesickness to my heart. Scenery cards are difficult and Deb did a great job portraying a beautiful place.

Card #2

A card that caused a few sweet tears was the beautiful Fall card that Deb made. You can’t ever go wrong with Autumn leaves on an embossed background. This card reminded me of the many years of walking in the woods and climbing the hills with my dad. His favorite tree was the Birch because of its unique qualities.
Fun Fact. Did you know that chewing on a Birch twig will freshen your breath? The oil of the tree has a Wintergreen flavor like you would find in toothpaste. It’s safe and edible in moderation.

Deb has a loving, caring heart and she has a gift of adding personal touches to her cards. As you make your cards, be encouraged and remember that your cards make others smile.
