These were on some of [info]the_child's gifts to various family members. I adore them.

Red Light
My card, accompanying a framed photo she'd taken, developed, and pulled an archival print of; in my case an extreme closeup of a car tire

Mother of the Child's card, accompanying a handmade beaten and cut copper bracelet

Film Strip
My sister's card, accompanying a framed photo she'd taken, developed, and pulled an archival print of

Christmas Tree
Lisa Costello's card, accompany a very nice scarf

Puzzle Pieces
Dad's card, with a handmade wooden puzzle

Once Upon a Time
The Niece's card, with a very nice Cross fountain pen she had coveted

My (step)mother's card, with a handcrafted beaten copper bowl [info]the_child had made herself

Chinese Food
[info]tillyjane's card, with an illustrated Chinese cookbook and a request for lessons in Chinese cookery

There has been discussion of her opening a card shop on Etsy. I am so proud of her.

She is very talented and as you have pointed out, these are obviously very personal between her and the recipient. What an amazing daughter you have there...

She is a keeper!
I dare say, it is not to early to ask her what art school she might want to attend. She is tremendously talented!
