I love receiving handwritten notes and greetings in the mail as much as the next person. But I rarely receive cards that cause me to drop to the floor or holler to the neighbors, "Hey, check this card out!!!!" I realize that most do not have the time to go shopping for the perfect card; three fourths of my friends have little ones, husbands and jobs that make the handwritten note or card just a mere belated afterthought. And if a Hallmark card happens to land in my mailbox I will not complain. It's the thought that counts, right? But if you really want to knock my knickers off and wow me until the cows come home consider the handmade brilliance of some of my favorite designs below!
