Gifts From My Blog Friends...

I've said it before and I'll say it again...Bloggers are THE best! Today, I'm sharing some photos of the goodies I've received in the past several weeks. During the Christmas holidays, I received some very unexpected boxes on my front porch.

The first one I got, was from the uber talented Jeanne. She sent me the cutest little cupcake! The photo just doesn't do it justice! It's sooo adorable and it has a prominent place in my Studio watching all of the goings on from atop my flower canisters. Look at that face! And there are even little 'sprinkles' on top! So so cute, Jeanne! I love it!

Then I got a box from Risa. I was so surprised when I opened it, because look what was inside...

Talk about CUTE!! My MIL was here when I opened this package and she saw the little basket and immediately placed her order with me to start making her some to give to her friends. The basket holds 3 peppermint patties, that have been dressed to match the card and the basket. I thought this was the cutest thing! So I placed an order with my SU! demo to get all of the punches I needed to make my own. Also included in this box was a wonderful package of gourmet coffee! Yummy gifts!!

And then, my RockStar friend, Kim hit the jackpot when she was able to purchase 143 House Mouse stamps. She was so very kind and generous to stamp off some of those images and share them with me. Kim and I are practicing our Copic coloring skills, and line images are our best bets for doing that. These stamps showcase the antics of some very adorable mice, rabbits and even a few bears. Just look at this array of images. Everything from Valentine's Day to Fall to Christmas and birthday and everything in between. I am anxious to get at them with my markers!

I am so blessed by these ladies and all of you who visit my blog. Thanks for stopping by today.

I agree Barb, Bloggers are the BEST! Hope you enjoy your House Mouse images. I have one colored and have to make a card for him.

Thanks again for the images you sent me.

Inky hugs,

What a DARLING cuppie!! It just looks soooo sweet! Jeanne did a beautiful job with that. And the card with the coordinating box and peppermint patties (LOVE those!) from Risa are SO pretty -- they look so festive with the poinsettia on top! And how wonderful that Kim sent you so many fun images to color! I'd say you have some pretty talented, thoughtful, and generous bloggin' buds. You're very blessed! tfs

You are spoiled - ahem, I mean, loved. I am jealous. :) Enjoy your goodies, Friend. [How is life treating you as a non-homeschooling mom this year?]

Jeanne said...

Aw shucks...thanks, Barb! I do think you are pretty evidenced by the fact that so many people have sent you lovely gifts!

Risa said...

Well my friend...this is our way of saying how much we love ya' dear. I adore your unique and cute, and I know you are going to have a grand time coloring in your images. Thanks for sharing your blessings Barb!
p.s. Thank you for the awesome comment Barb. Once you start making these baskets, you are going to love them. The possibilities are endless:)
