Blessed

I’m not sure whether I told you all or not, but I was the one to win Tracey’s blog candy that I had pictured on my sidebar right at the top. Yesterday there was a knock at the door and it was the lovely Australia Post delivery man (who I see on a frighteningly regular basis!) with a pizza box and my name was right there on the front :) Inside it was the blog candy that Tracey had sent and let me just say that she is one very generous lady. I spent a good 20 mins looking through it all and ooohhhhing and aaaahhhhhing. I couldn’t wait for Mama to get home from work so I could show her all the loot! So thank you Tracey!!!! You totally rock :) I can’t believe how much gorgeous stuff you sent me and I have already made a card out of some of it(using one of the cutest Anya images that she stamped for me), and am about to embark on a cute mini-book because of how much this stuff inspired me!!!!

Want to see what I got???

This is the cute little card that came with my goodies. Now you can all understand what I mean about generous….the amount of DP (all 12x12) alone would have been awesome but all the rest of it too???? Too kind Tracey ♥

I know that I promised I would share photos of the craft room transformation yesterday, but I have to confess that there are still a few more things to be done before I can share. I haven’t mentioned this before, but Mama has been rather ill and it turns out that she has both a stomach ulcer and a hernia (which will need an operation to fix!!!). So we haven’t gotten as much done as we had hoped. But it will get there and I will share pictures as soon as I can….even if it’s not quite finished :)

Finally (long post today!) I wanted to share with you a cute card that I made…

S6302090

The Tilda with the bee was a RAK from Kellie but the suitcase stamp is mine (insert evil laugh). The paper behind her is Baja Breeze DSP layered onto some blue Bazzil textured CS. The other DP is Urban Prairie and if you look closely you can see that there are 2 different yellow crochet trims that I appropriated from Mama’s stash :) The crochet flower is Laundry Line and the button came from Mama’s fab button collection, while the blue Prima was from Tracey. The base of the card is Baja Breeze.

I just love this card, and I love that there’s no sentiment…I thought perhaps I would write/stamp Bon Voyage inside…don’t know though.

I hope you’re all having a terrific Tuesday and I’ll catch you tomorrow ♥

I love that DSP on your card! I was wondering where you got it, then you told us, and I HAVE IT! Oh, this is embarrassing ...

I hope your Mama is feeling okay. I know the two of you will take care of each other!
