I want to start off by saying this is a card made with love! My dear Aunt Donna, whom I love dearly, left a surprise on my doorstep for me to find one day when I came home from work. I say "I" because my hubby isn't a big fan of what was in the package, but, I am so a fan! I am of German-Irish descent. My mother's side of the family is German, and my Father's side is Irish. My Aunt every year for Christmas makes Lebkuchen. Find out more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lebkuchen. To my knowledge I am the only one of my generation who likes Lebkuchen. It's a cookie that has a distinct warming taste, and pairs great with coffee in the morning... yes cookies with coffee... why not? You only live once! :o) There was also another little goodie in the bag that just warmed my heart. Love you Aunt Donna!
Anywhos, this is a card I made for her. I used From My Kitchen, a gift from my MIL for Christmas - thanks Charlotte and altered the apron a bit. I hid the original cut of the pear or apple or whatever it was on the top part of the apron and then cut a star in Kraft paper (brown is the color of Lebkuchen). The star shape is one of the shapes my Aunt cut her cookies in and she tops the cookis with a thin layer of frosting. So thin it's practically see through but adds a great sweetness to the cookie. I then cut the Thank You from Wild Card and doodled on that a bit and used my new "Sew Easy" a gift from Mama - thank you Mama!
I loved to make this card and hope Aunt Donna likes this card! She is a very crafty person - all my mother's sisters are! So, hopefully, she will like this card!
Thank you for looking!
