With millions of us not seeing our friends now due to Covid-19 this special ‘Send a Card to a Friend Day’ on February 7th is very apt. There is nothing like receiving a card with some lovely words in it from a friend or family member, but it does not have to just be for birthdays, anniversaries or Christmas, it can be any time of year.
‘Send a Card to a Friend Day’ is your chance to tell that special person what they mean to you and why. It is nothing like a phone call or an email this is something far more personal than that.
A handmade card would make it even more special. I had decided after Christmas that I was going to write to all my friends, and I have just finished making my cards when I came across this International Awareness Day. Do you get excited when you hear letters pop through your door and you find a hand written card or letter? We all love getting items in the mail. But why? Perhaps its the time it takes to sit down in our busy lives and write the card. Perhaps it’s the fact that the person was thinking about you when they selected the card. Perhaps it’s the quaintness of receiving something so physical in our age of rapid digital and instant gratification. Whatever the reason, join in on February 7th as we celebrate National Send a Card to a Friend Day!
Here are some of my ideas, I hope you like them. All hand made, some hand sewn and painted, some just painted and decorated but all to cheer someone up during this difficult time.
