I'm Back and RAKs I Received

Hi Everybody!! I'm back from Vegas. Did I win big? Of course not! But I did win back half of the money I initially lost so I'm happy. We had a fun time . . .Vegas is always fun. There's so many things to do and lots of yummy places to eat. If you've never visited Vegas. . .lemme' tell yah. . .you'll have a blast there.


Look what I received in the mail! Holy Cow! I was shocked when I opened the box that I received from Jen of "Pieces of Me" I was like "WOW". . .I couldn't believe what was in the box. Jen is so generous and I was so grateful for all the stuff she sent me.

Jen sent me 3 Bella stamps! Three of them!! Boy, they'll surely be put to good use! I also received 2 packs of scrapbook stickers (very pretty), a very beautiful handmade card and Christmas pictures of her and her family with a lovely handwritten note. She has such a beautiful family and her note was so kind. Scroll down there's more. . . .


Oh gosh. . .Jen's gifts were so thoughtful. I'm originally from Hawaii and she knows how much I miss the yummy snacks and food from there so the "mochi crunch" cracker snack is very appreciated. I can eat the whole bag in one sitting. . .seriously, it's addicting.

She also sent a bag that you can design yourself. The front has an insert for you to slip in a stamped design. This bag is so cool. I can't wait to decorate it. Last of all, she sent a "Stamper's Sampler" magazine. I love this mag. . .there's a lot of great ideas in this magazine.

Thank you so much Jen for being so thoughtful and kind! Lemme' tell yah. . .all of the items will be put into great use and I cannot tell ya' how appreciative I am of all of them! Jen, although we've never me, has become a wonderful friend! I can't wait to hang out with her when I visit Hawaii! I feel like I've known her for such a long time when actually, we've never met in person!!! In my opinion, blog friends are REAL friends. Again, I cannot express how grateful I am to have met such a lovely and kind person like Jen.


Here is another RAK I received. This one is from Karen. . .one of my blog readers. Karen is such a sweetheart! This card is so beautiful. This type of card is called a "bookatrix" I've never seen a bookatrix card in person. It's awesome. It's something I want to try to make and Karen's card is a beautiful example. It's decorated with pearly beads and the background design is embossed. It's very elegant. The picture does not do the card justice. . .

Visit Karen's card gallery to check out her creations and there's many of them to look at. Her cards are very artistic looking. Click Here to visit her card gallery and you'll see what I mean. Thank you Karen for being so kind!
