old folks need glue.

FF snail mail

valentine for charity. 
hand embroidered on linen.  
handmade envelope.

this took wayyyyy longer than it should have, but don't all the good FOs?  i was originally going to just embroider right on the cardstock, but i punked out at the last second.  i'm super in love with the envelope, too!  i just made it up as i went, and i came out perfect.  i didn't write anything inside b/c i hate cards that are already written out.  they're usually kinda cheesy, or just kinda sad.  

i keep drawing this lil' guy on everything. i love him :-)

SnailMail Valentines will be online @ and in the brooklyn shop around the end of the month.
proceeds go to elder craftsmen. a NYC based organization that brings craft workshops to local senior citizens.

Just wanted to drop a line about your card. I got it at the FredFlare store wall today! It was soooo super cute and unique that I had to snatch it up. Sadly, it's not going to a special person but getting rehung on MY wall cause it's THAT great! Happy Valentine's Day!
