The one I've decided to show was made and sent by an elderly couple - both in their 80s - it is beautifully cross stitched and equally beautifully printed inside, including one of the lovely quotes from Isaiah:





This is an opportunity to thank everyone who has sent a gorgeous handmade card - every one is so much appreciated.
