Another lovely surprise!

Hi again!

I JUST HAD to share another lovely surprise … that arrived at my front door by courier yesterday morning! I was so excited to open up the carefully packed box to find this …

My very special friend Lee-Anne (who I have never met – except through our blog friendship) sent this gorgeous parcel to me! Isn’t it all just so beautifully coordinated! I love the pretty pink Christmas Paper!!! (I wonder who’s it is??? 😉 ) The verse image on the card is one I haven’t seen before … but it is just perfect! (And the personal message inside was even more perfect!!!) Look at that gorgeous punched border! (Another I haven’t seen before!!!) And … even the envelope has some elegant dry embossing. The detail in these precious gifts is just lovely, Lee-Anne! Thank you so much for this really thoughtful and beautiful gift!

The box has some “yummies” inside … and the tin holds a lovely candle! Both things I am rather taken with … how did Lee-Anne know that I even have a candle sitting on my craft desk … that I love to light … just to enjoy the fragrance! I can’t describe how pretty this candle fragrance is … but it is something different to my usual vanilla or frangipani … and it is just lovely! Big hugs to Lee-Anne! 

I have received several beautifully hand made Christmas Cards … but just haven’t had the time to  photograph or post them all here. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to create something special for me this Christmas … I am truly touched by all your thoughtful expressions of friendship! I just wanted to share one more cute card made by my sis … my no. 1 supporter! Again, not a SU! image … but very cute and sparkly! (She has used the “Dazzling Diamonds Dust” technique to cover the whole of the background of the main image – you can see this on her blog -> Christine’s Creations.)

Don’t forget to check out my Christmas Card for today! (Scroll down to next post!) So … one more Chrissy Card to share tomorrow … before Christmas … I am about to prepare that post and then get back to my Chrissy baking!!! Still lots to do! But at least I feel like I am getting there! Keep smiling … even though it is busy … remember … it is “happy busy”!

    when you give with a generous heart , it comes back tenfold! such a thoughtful gift is appreciated by you and that is why your blog friends want to share…

    at this time of year i am also reminded of the story of Jesus feeding the multitudes the sparse fish and the bread! even though our energy levels are being exhausted we once again find a reserve to acheive our goals!

    remember to prioritize and find some me time to recharge your spirits!
    Andrea adds: Hello Helen! So nice of you to pop by in this busy time! And … your thoughts are so appreciated! Thanks heaps. Wishing you are wonderful Christmas with your family remembering Jesus’ birth and sharing happy times. xxx
