Sharing ideas across the oceans

How great is it that the internet enables us to share ideas across the oceans?!

Helen emailed from New Zealand asking how I knitted the age for a birthday card that she’d seen on my blog.  She was keen to make something similar for a friend about to celebrate her 70th birthday.

I was delighted to learn that the birthday girl was thrilled with her handmade card.  I also noticed that Helen is a much better knitter than I am!

Has anyone made something similar?  Perhaps we can build a collection?
