More thank yous

I LOVE receiving hand made cards! Well who doesn't, but I think as a cardmaker you perhaps realise more than non-crafters the thought, effort and care that goes into the creation of a card. Is there anything nicer than opening a surprise envelope to reveal a beautiful, unique card made with you in mind? I don't think so! Talk about life's simple pleasures.

I've been lucky enough to recieve a few cards just like this recently from two of my loveliest blogging friends:

I'm very belated in posting this but it's well worth the wait - this is from Steph. Isn't it stunning!

but wait....she's such a honey that she sent me this as well: (sorry the photo's not great)

A selection of Raspberry Fizz products from Papertrey Ink! (And yep you can spy a matching Copic marker there too - and it's a colour I didn't have!) Isn't this THE most delicious, happy colour you've ever seen? Bless her, she knew I couldn't survive until my order made it's way across the Atlantic! Thanks Steph - you're a sweetheart!

Then last week Jo sent me these along with a fabulous collection of cards for the Marie Curie Appeal we're running over at In Love With Stamping.

The first is a birthday card using that yummy cupcake stamp (and you should see the glitter on those babies!)

and also this - I love the design, so simple and elegant. Thanks Jo, you too are an absolute sweetheart!!

Thank you so much for putting a big smile on my face ladies - I'm so lucky to have met you! Go check out their fabulous blogs NOW!!!!

I can see why you adore the Papertry one, delish colour and stunning design. I love the cupcake one too - its one of my fave stamps at the moment!

Thank you for sharing

Thanks again for thinking of me...you made my day!


Jo said...

Ahh, bless! You're more than welcome Kate. x

Love your new goodies too...I've made a small purchase myself of some copics to give them a try after seeing the wonderful things that you and Steph do with them.
