RAKS The Kindness of Stampers

It never ceases to amaze me how KIND and WONDERFUL my stamping friends are. Today my mail was evidence of that.

First, I received this AMAZING card AND punch from Juanita. The card is soo pretty. I love the wonderful colors and her little tiny crystal stickers so perfectly placed. And check out the bottom border and then read this---

I have exchanged a few emails back and forth with this amazing woman---one regarding a card I did a week ago. She (and about 35 other people) asked where I got the punch I used for this card. I told her that it was a Martha Stewart pre-made card that I had used. Well, on a recent shopping excursion, she found this punch (which looks just like the beautiful border on the card minus the embossing). So, she picked one up for ME?!

What a sweetheart---I can tell you that I will be using this A LOT! Thanks so much Juanita!

Here is another one. This beauty is from Shawn. Shawn won my blog candy a few weeks ago and she just had to send this as a thank you!?!?!?! Wow---I feel like I just WON blog candy!

Thanks so much Shawn---you are soo sweet and your card is just amazing. I love the beautiful embossed swirl in the background.


I KNOW---I am a lucky ducky!

I have received hundreds of cards in just the past year that I started doing this. I usually do not post them but I think I just might start doing that. I keep every card (as you can see) and it is such a fantastic feeling to go back and read each one.

I am touched that so many wanted to share their beautiful hand-made creations with me.

Stampers are AMAZING!
