K is for Karina

My friend Karina lives in Sydney, Australia. We met at university in Liverpool back in the late 80s and have kept in touch ever since. Life took us in different directions - me to Israel and Karina to Australia - but email and now Whatsapp has enabled us to remain in good contact all these years. How great is that?
Karina is 10 days younger than me. This year we were both turning 50 and I wanted to send her something special to mark the day. I decided to make her one of my papercut initials. I cut out the letter K and filled it with flowers, leaves and my signature little bird.
My letters are available unframed and can be cut in various sizes. Do you have someone you would like me to cut a papercut initial for? You can order one right here.
