Lost & Found

A ticket stub. A seashell. A penny. The daily horoscope. These are everyday items that can easily go from blah to Tada!.

I'm incorporating them into this greeting card I made -- it's all about Handmade Hellos in my blog this week.
When you open the card, you'll find these mini-envelopes.
You can make the envelopes or buy them ready-made at
the craft store (scrapbooking section).

Add a purpose to an old ticket stub to make it special.

Put some sentimental value to a vacation souvenir.

Discovered something a friend will like?
Read something that made you feel good?
Pass it on!

Picked up a penny on the sidewalk?
Share your wealth!

It takes very little to keep in touch & tell someone that you're thinking about him/her. If you can't find the words, let your little treasures do the talking.
