Spring Exchange Arrives - Thank You Valma!

Just wanted to send out a big thank you to my gift stitcher Valma. I didn't know where my partner was from, but when I saw mail from France in the box on Tuesday I knew it could only be my present from the Margaret Sherry exchange. What a lovely card to brighten my day!

Thank you Valma! I really appreciate the time you took to stitch this and make it for me. Valma included a beautifully written personal note in the card. I thought I'd have to recall the high school French I learned many, many years ago and, I have to admit, I was somewhat relieved to find Valma's note was in English! (French being our second language here in Canada, we all learn it for a few years of grade school and high school, but here on the West Coast it isn't used as much as in eastern Canada, so I haven't spoken or read French in quite some time!)

I love my card and the beautiful spring ribbon and other notions that were included with it. Thanks again!
