My First Christmas Gifts! Thank You Carly & Jeanne!

I have to tell you having this blog has been such a blessing in my life! I have met so many new and wonderful men and women who are so talented and well, simply awesome! My cup runneth over!!! :0)

There are no words to describe the sheer joy when one of my dear blog follower and friend sent me vouchers to get stamping supplies! I was so touched at her generosity. Carly (who has an awesome blog "Shelby In Colour" which I have posted here on my blog) is from Australia. So what better way to send a most appreciated gift!

Carly, you are more than just a blog follower to me. You are a dear friend and your gift to me means more than you will ever know. As you can see everything arrived today! I wish you could have seen Lee's face when I was squealing with joy showing him each item and describing the cards I am going to make with everything! I don't know if I'm going to get any sleep tonight! I just want to play with all the new stamps and paper.

Did you see I got one of the ATYOU SPICA pens you had mentioned in one of your blog comments. I think I may have to have them all!And of course I had to have a cute dragon stamp. Every time I use any of these awesome stamps I will think of you! :0)

I also got a animated Christmas card that each day plays a different Christmas carol and shows a different scene in a little village. Lee and I have been enjoying it so much. It's fun to see what each new day brings. It was sent to me by Jeanne. She is in our stamping group and has become a good friend and someone I admire for her talent and great sense of humor! Love ya Jeanne! :0)

Most of all each day is like Christmas when I can read all the wonderful comments, tips and encouragement from all my blog followers. Each and everyone of you adds joy and spice to my life! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for your kindness and generosity!

Till my next post...
