You are Amazing

A Telegram...
You are Amazing.
Recently I commented on an adorable teacher's set that someone had made. I had loved it and wrote how great it was. She was a complete stranger but I really loved the set and she was so gracious to offer to give it to me. Well, I received it this week and it is so lovely and I am so happy. I cannot wait to put it on my desk when school starts in another 12 days. The card below is a darling "telegram" set from the Craft's Meow - that is my thank you card (via snail mail) to this generous lady.
The Creative Details:
Image: The Craft's Meow
