Personalized Cards *Cherished BlogFest* CBF16


Print
Yes, I love cards, the personalised ones! Just love them. And the way my sister crafts them, they turn out even more beautiful. Whoever sees those cards wants one for them, but obviously, I am the privileged one here and I take full advantage of that! Not that I ask her to make one for me!

The first giant card she made was for my birthday before the wedding and believe me it was huge. Sometimes, I wonder what is she doing in her 9 to 5 job... O let me correct 9 to no fixed-time hour job? Only she knows!

She makes cards for others as well, her close friends and folks but the kinds she has made for me, she hasn’t made such for anyone else! Does it sound like I’m boasting here? Yes, I am. And it’s fun to sometimes. Yes, I am bragging about my sister and her creativity and the love that she has in her heart for me!

And this not just you know sticking pictures and writing something something. It’s beyond that. It’s the pain that she takes to make it a perfect one, the endless sleepless nights that it takes to make the card for the given date (morning-afternoon, evening is all office), and putting her heart and soul just to bring that smile on my face! Am I not lucky to have her? Of course, I am!

Below is the glimpse of the card. I don’t have the pictures of the first card, but I have the second one :D


Isn't the card pretty? Pretty would be an understatement for a card like this one.

I have another card made by friends but don't have a picture to share with you. Will share in some other post.

Words have a special place in my heart. I always look forward to cards on special days and love to read what that person has written by themselves. It adds so much of personal touch, doesn't it?

It all started when I was in class 11, and for the first time, Ar and I exchanged cards! And the amount of stuff we wrote for each other... It was beyond one's expectations! Looked like we were writing for the board examinations :P

It's always good to express what's there in your heart and receive the love in various forms!

Cards are something I cherish. I love cards and enjoy reading them :)

What is your most cherished thing? Share with me in the comments.

  3. I agree totally, hand made cards have a special touch of love in them...it means so much more than the ones from the gift shop! My sister and I used to make cards for our parents on special days...though lately we've switched to Photoshop printouts. :D And hey that card looks awesome, tell that to your sister! :D

  4. Crafting cards always looks like so much fun to me. When someone make a card especially for you, it's so much nicer than a store bought one because you know that they took time and effort on it with you in mind.

  15. When I read your About Me section, I was completely blown away. We have many things in common. I am an avid dreamer, movie maniac, coffee lover, reader, traveler, music lover, hyper active imagination, fun loving and free spirited, but I'm a Pisces. I love cards, but I don't have enough time to make one. However, I have few cards gifted to me by my friends and I keep them safe in my closet. I loved the way you have written this post. Absolutely heart-touching. As a co-host I thank you for sharing your story in the Cherished Blogfest.
