Napkin folded card

I made this napkinfolded card for my daughters host family in Iowa
this coming year. She is on her way to a year as an exchange student,
and in this regard I thought it would be nice to make something
special for her to bring, and give together with a little gift from Norway.


The host mum and I have been communicating for a while now,
and we both agree that in this world of data and  internet, where
the kids go around with a cell phone and/or an iPad everywhere
and always, it is so important to be together, hence the text.


Here I have opened up the 'belt', and below you can see the
inside (where I had to 'delete' the letter..)




At least; the backside with my personal stamp.


I am so pleased to confirm that my card has been received, and they
enjoyed it immensely, whiuch makes me very happy :-)

Lekkert kort Turid! Det er jo klart at vertsmammaen likte dette :) Det må være rart å ha jenta si så langt unna, men for en opplevelse det helt sikkert blir for henne.

Og grattis med ny jobb!!! Du å du. Så bra! Masse lykke til med første dag :)

Synd det ikke ble noe treff på fredag, men vi sees vel den 7 september?
Ha en strålende uke Turid.

Åhh så flott Turid, utrolig lekker bretting, tror ikke jeg klarer å lage så mange bretter på kryss og tvers. Ikke rart det sitter en lykkelig mottaker "over there". Håper jenta di har funnet seg godt tilrette og trives. Lykke til i ny jobb, spennende :)
Klem Sissel
