What I love about making handmade cards for friends
is gearing them specifically to each friend.
Above, it's for someone who loves and celebrates
the flowers of spring (among many other things.)
A card for a friend who is recovering from a fracture.
Polka dots make her happy.
They made me happy as I was polka dotting them.
And, they brought back some happy
polka dot memories from childhood.
It's like I get to borrow a bit of joy from my friends,
and return it with some of my own mixed in.
