Sweet surprise in the mail!

I received this beautiful belated Birthday card in the mail from my sweet blogging friend Gerri who writes a wonderful blog called It's all Treasure.   Thank you Gerri, this really cheered me up, and I really needed that too, I have been feeling a bit down, getting sciatica right now stinks!  My family needs my help installing the floors and I am more of a burden than a help right now.  
I love all the beautiful detail on this card, I told her it really is much more beautiful IRL than on the blog.  I love how she uses her Stickles, framing adding jewelry and accents everywhere!  
Be sure to stop by Gerri's blog and see the her work and and watch a video Etsy made for Etsy TV featuring her also talented husband John (Classic Wrecks) work.  They are both so talented.   Thanks again Gerri, your card really made my day!
