Mara is Secretly Stitching

I would like to thank my bloggy friend Mara @ Secretly Stitching for this wonderful fabric Birthday Card. It arrived in the post with perfect timing for my birthday from beautiful Greece, where she lives with her family. I actually won this fabric card during one of the generous giveaways she organises on her blog and I am so grateful I got to know her in that occasion. This is the best giveaway I've ever won: I won a new friend!


Look at the beauty she sent me! I love the hand stitching on this side of the card and the stamp is perfect, so realistic.


On the front Mara used this wonderful toucan fabric with the hand stitched words that remind me what a fun person she is every time I look at it!


Mara is full of energy and ideas, so don't miss reading her blog. She is now running an international fabric swap called  Swap Group. This round is for swapping text fabric. If you're interested, she'll be running a second round soon so drop her a line or fill in this form.


Have a look at this video to see what an incredible place she lives in. One of the most beautiful places in the world!

Thank you Mara!
