Giving and Receiving

As you know I love to make cards and gifts for others and love to share what I do with whoever wants to know or learn.

I also happen to love receive these things as well and I am so very touched when I get these things and to know that while someone was making it they were thinking of me. I have been so blessed with friends since taking up stamping and more so when I joined Stampin’ Up!® and became a demonstrator.

thanksfromcaroljLast week I did a demonstration for a lovely friend who rewarded me with a thank you card for doing her demonstration. I was so very touched and told her “I give you the thank you’s not you give them to me!”

She also made the little treats for all her guests as well! How very thoughtful of her dont you think?

Carol used the Sale A Bration  Botanical Blooms and the Outlined for Fun set to make the card and also added those lovely (and very sharp) hat pins from the Pretties Kit.

Here is the card opened – isnt it just divine?

thanksfromcaroljinsideThanks so much Carol for having the demonstration with me and blessing me with your friendship over the last few years.concertinagift-tanya

Then just this morning as my parcel guy was delivering several large boxes there was also a post-pak as well and wondered what it was as I wasnt expecting anything else. It was from the very lovely Tanya!

I opened the package to reveal this lovely wrapped gift. I think Tanya knows me a little too well as it was wrapped in the Forever Friends gift wrap and I just love those bears!

So I unwrapped the gift to reveal an awesome Concertina File for Memo’s, Receipts, Shopping Lists and To-do. Now I wonder if she thinks I need help in this area?? lol



How nice is this folder??

Here is the folder closed showing the lovely flower from Echoes of Kindness – a set I’m very quickly falling in love with!

I love the Outlaw papers and am sorry to see these go but am loving all the new Designer Series Paper packs available in the new catalogue.

Thanks Tanya for going to so much work and for posting this to me and without a word you sneaky girl!

Now I did say I received several boxes today didnt I ??

So yes I have new stamps to create with and share with you – now to just find the time to sit and create!

Until next time …
