I've been experimenting with using doilies on my handmade cards. The sentiment on this card says
Friendship is what binds the world together in peace.
For Christmas I received a wonderful card from my sister - not handmade, but amazing all the same. It was a card saying a donation had been made in my name to help a woman start a small business in Sri Lanka in the wake of the Tsunami and Civil War.
This is through an Oxfam initiative offering other great gift card ideas for sponsoring a bicycle ambulance, clean running water, chickens etc. Best of all, these cards can be given all year round. Great to see imagination, creativity and reaching out all come together.
And I love the idea of a card. Like our handmade cards, there's a sense of connection and something special in a card picked out especially for you. Wishing you all everything wonderful for 2011.
