Life is Beautiful....

Well, it is when you have yummy gifts & Basic Grey papers to play with.....

I made this card yesterday to use some of the lovely things my most wonderful sister sent to me last week...she is the best!!! There's some more pics of some of the goodies she sent me later in the post. The gorgeous pink ribbon, felt flower and red prima all came from the stuff she sent me {see, I actually listened to you Mad and I'm trying really hard not to hoard it all}. The card base is Regal Rose, the papers are BG, the flower gems are Kaiser, and the rub-ons come from SU's Eastern Elegance. Oh and the button is SU Pretty in Pink.

Now, you will notice in this next pic that there is a cool scalloped edge on the back of the card....this is a Save Yourself From Yourself moment, a la Leslie! Having a momentary Blonde Moment I scored the CS in the wrong place and instead of just throwing it in the scrap pile to be cut up, I thought that I would just scallop the back edge and use it anyway!!!!
I think it looks kinda cute...so I've got it in an envie ready to post out to my lovely Mama today :)

As I mentioned earlier, Mad sent me a delicious parcel of goodness last week, including this stunning card:
A whole bunch of lovely pink & purple goodies (there was more ribbon & some bits of cute chipboard too, but I forgot to put it in the picture), all packaged up in a cool Christmas tin that I shall be altering some time in the NEAR future :)
Do you see that cute felt birdie....I am SO going to hoard that until I find the perfect project deserving of it's adorableness!!!! But best of all, there was this uber cute birdie paper.....
I don't know where she got that....shall have to find out....I do believe I need more of it....MUCH, MUCH MORE!!!!!

So there you have it....I have the bestest sister in the whole world. With everything she has on her plate right now she took the time to buy/find all this Kristie-ish goodness and send it to me....she is the most wonderful and generous person and I am completely blessed to have her as MY sister :)

Ok, better go do some work....have a great Monday,
Kristie

That birdy paper is from the Basic Grey Phoebe range. That piece is called Japanese Tea Garden - so cute!
