Sending Hugs

I don't know about you, but when I open my mailbox, I get a lot of paper, but nothing I really enjoy receiving. It seems everybody stays in touch with technology these days, and sometimes it's depressing.  Isn't it fun to find a letter, or a cute card once in a while? This past week, I made a real effort to send out a few random cards, instead of an email. This is probably one of my absolute favorite cards I've ever made:

The colors are so soft, and the picture really doesn't do it justice. I sent this to my mom this week. I know she gets lonely, and I don't get down to Texas to see her often enough. I know she'll love this when she gets it.

Another fun card I sent this week was this:

I can't take credit for making this card. I received it in a swap with some other Close To My Heart consultants a couple of years ago. Unfortunately, I don't remember who made this, so I cannot give her credit. The peacock is embossed with white, so this has a nice texture to it. And although you can't see in the picture, there are tiny pearls attached here and there. I sent this to my new penpal Jenny, from themodestpeacock.blogspot.com. I hope she'll enjoy this cute card!

I have such a stash of cards, just waiting to be mailed out. If you'd like to receive a random piece of happy mail once in a while, I'd love to send you some! Drop me an email with your snail mail address, and I'd love to share a smile. Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!


  1. awww, Cindy, that is so nice and sweet of you. What a thoughtful person you are. The cards are beautiful. Are you originally from Texas?

  2. That is so thoughtful. My mama is very big on sending birthday and Christmas cards. Eventually, you'll get back all the love you send out. Mama received over 80 birthday cards this year.

  3. That is a neat idea, makes me want to send out some personal letters and cards

  4. Hi Cindy, You are so right. It is so special to receive a real card in the mail to open and enjoy and see displayed in our home. Your cards are stunning and anyone would love to receive. Love the card you got too. I love to send cards and still do for all reasons and just because. I do make a few too, nothing as gorgeous as yours, but I am inspired when visiting posts like yours to keep trying.

    Thank you for stopping by and your kind comment.
    Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    hugs, CM

  5. Hello, Cindy! Your cards are lovely. The recipients of these are surely blessed!

  6. I love your cards Cindy. I enjoy sending cards too and send one to my sister every few weeks in the UK so she knows I'm thinking of her. Have become a follower of yours tonight and look forward to seeing more of your creations!
