A friend was interested in a thank you note for a special care giver in her life. The theme she wanted to convey was the notion of "the giver and the gift." The small daily gifts bestowed by the care giver would be abundantly returned to her. I found a quotation from the extraordinary Amelia Earhart, "A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions....and the roots spring up to make new trees." Using this as inspiration, I found a wonderful nineteenth century painting, "The White Horse," by John Constable. I added a mat for framing and a vintage gold pendant, shaped like a leaf, for decoration. May we all plant seeds of love that root and flower.

  1. Sarah dear, The entire description of how you made the card and why you chose the photograph and the quotation were fascinating. What marvelous care and thought you put into it. The finished card is really beautiful. I can only imagine its giver being truly delighted and the recipient very moved.
