Friendship

Guest Artist: Cheryl



This posting today is about friendship and how lucky I think
so many of us feel to have met such wonderful people while we have been blogging. Yesterday there was a surprise in my mailbox--the most beautiful
art by Cheryl from the UK.

Let me tell you right off that my pictures don't do these tags or magnificent altered book justice. They are so incredibly made that just holding them is special--I'm not exaggerating! The bird and bird cage are so sparkly and the pages of the journal are each individual pieces of art. They even have pockets to put special notes...How amazing is that?

The book is held together by the most exquisite clasp and beautiful key...I could go on and on about this because there is so much detail and must have taken forever to make!!


They remind me so much that not only is friendship such a
blessing, but so is being able to use our talents.



Thank you all so much for visiting AND for being my friends...You all make
the world a better place. And Tuesday, June's husband in England is having surgery and I hope you will join me in praying for him.

Cheryl, thank you again for being the BRIGHT spot in my day!!!

XO
Cindy
