Lost and Found Cards
By: A cateyegirl  -  12/22/2016

Several years ago my mother-in-law sent home a tattered old box of paper dolls.  Paper dolls she actually played with.  She's was born in 1938, you do the math.

Now I could have just shoved them in a clear poly bag and slapped a price tag on them.  I didn't . . . because . . . well, I'm not really sure why.  I just didn't.

Early in the fall they surfaced and I knew exactly what to do with them . . .

I contacted Marie Shoup of Lost and Found Cards and asked her if she could take this box of tattered old paper dolls and make a few cards for a gift for my mother-in-law, Gayle, and her sister, Janet.

They are simply darling and come with a wonderful story that both Gayle and Janet can share.

I can't wait to hear Gayle and Janet's response to them . . . tickled I am sure but they both tend toward the sentences with lots of affirming adjectives.

I love this one!
