Frame A Lovely Card !

A beautiful framed birthday card !
Some cards are just too beautiful to be put into a cupboard or draw and left and maybe looked at every few years or discarded. Especially when they can be put into a fame and admired often. My friend Carmela gave me this birthday card some years back, so I decided to cut out the happy birthday words on the front with an oval template I made.I printed out a lovely poem called the meaning of true love, then I put it behind the cut out oval. Then I trimmed the outside of the oval with a fancy trim that I glued, added a lovely white ribbon bow. I think it looks gorgeous I have it on my bedroom wall and I'm often reminded of my friend  Carmela who I've been friends with for 34 years. I love having things around the house that remind me of special people in my life. The poem is written by Helen Steiner Rice.

                                          The Meaning of True Love
It is sharing and caring,
Giving and forgiving,
Loving and being loved,
Walking hand in hand,
Talking heart to heart,
Seeing through each other's eyes,
Laughing together,
Weeping together,
Praying together,
And always trusting
And believing
And thanking God
For each other...
For love that is shared
is a beautiful thing--
It enriches the soul
and makes the heart sing!
