Snail Mail Love.

I am so lucky to have some wonderful bloggy (and lifetime) friends!
Karriann and I have been paired for a Valentine Swap a couple of years ago, and we have been good friends ever since. She surprised me with two fabulous gifts last month, and I want to share their beauty with you, today, for Pink Saturday
She made, especially for me, a 'Double- Double', a fabric journal with two spines and four signatures. It was her very first experience with sewing... I'm so impressed!

Love her handmade cards too. Karriann always takes the time to make one (while I'm lazier and usually use store-bought ones).

She chose some lovely pink fabrics for me... 



... and also made a gorgeous button bracelet, and a cute fabric pouch embellished by a pink crystal flower. Thank you, my friend!♡




Glad I managed to join Beverly's Pink Saturday this week! 
Have a beautiful weekend,
Monica x.
