The Greatest Gift Ever…..For an ARTist….

Hey Everyone and Happy Thursday to you all!!!  I just have to share this with you……..I had tears stream down my face when I received this email today…..
Remember the Easel Card I shared with you that I made for Shawana…….well Terri gave it to Shawana today…this was her email to me……
I just got home from Shawana’s.  When I walked in she started to cry and I had to give her a huge hug for her to calm down.  I had the box in my hand and her granny was talking to me and she grabbed it out of my hands.  There were a lot of people.  I read the card out loud for everyone to hear and Shawana touched all the embellishments and said awww the entire time.  I made it thru it without crying.  I think I was able to do that because some of the people there I did not know.  But her family was all in tears.  I have attached a pic of her and I with your card.  Her granny put it up on the headboard of Shawana’s bed.  I looks perfect there.
By the way I also received two cards in the mail today.  They are from Louise Key and Janie Thornley.  It says they are friends of Penny and Terri on the card and they are from the MTC group.  Do you know which group or a way I can contact them to say thanks.  I was going to send out a quick note to the groups that Shawana has received her card and I am going to try to attach the pic to it as well.  I don’t know if I can do that on the group though.  I am going to give it a try.  Thanks again for the beautiful card.  Her family was very touched.
