Marc's Guest Spot ......

Picture 001
On Saturday the postman bought me two wondrous parcels from Marc ….  one I am forbidden to open until Christmas Day and it’s now hidden at the bottom of my wardrobe emitting wonderful lavender smells, the other was full of crafty stuff, it was like Pandora's Box  (but more of that in a later post in the New Year ….)

But I was allowed  to open the box that my Christmas card was in,  just how beautiful is it?  I admit I went all unnecessary and had to blow my nose several times ... to maintain a certain level of dignity!

It’s more than a card, its a labour of love……. …. and after Christmas I shall have it framed so it will be with me everyday on my desk at work.
Lace
I can’t believe the detail ….. the papers, the lace and the beautiful, beautiful handmade pins …….

...... and I thought I was the Queen of the Flat Backed Gem but Marc has positively usurped me!

Even the inside is exquisite, but the silly whatsit wouldn’t write inside it because he says his writing is pants!  What is he like …..?  Thank you Marc, I adore it xxxxx

That's an amazing card - it would take me days, maybe weeks, to make. And mine wouldn't be nearly that beautiful. It's not really a card, it's a lovely gift!
