Thanks So Much...

Hello all,
It is so nice to have friends. Dear friends are hard to find. I have found a few whom I cherish so much they are dear to my hear and bring my peace of mind. All of my friends are one of a kind and I thank GOD for them everyday. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for all my birthday wishes and wonderful gifts that I received last week for my birthday. It was such a pleasant surprise when I received all my goodies. Here are a few photos of some of the wonderful gifts I received. I got tons and tons of cards, and emails. which was so nice.

My dear friend Sylvia Anderson made me a beautiful necklace. It the one with the cupid silohuette. She also sent me alot of other goodies that I will be using soon at a Sally Jean class that I will be taking in Hampton,VA. I am going with Gina Smith. I am excited about going to this event. Mary also sent me near and dear. See created me a hand crafted card and some vintage butterflies. That was so sweet of her. My friend Jackie who is a sweetheart has a special touch with senitment gifts. She sent me a adorable card and yummy chocolates with a sweet angel inside. I will love it always. I am praying for you during this time. I hope you feel better soon. I also bought a few things for myself. I found an adorable button ring on etsy Angela has has some really cute things. Check out her store. I also odered these beautiful marble magnets from Amber Anderson of Beautiful Era. I love her work. Visit her etsy shop at

Let me see who else, oh, my traveling buddy Nicole sent me some great new rubber stamps and a gift card from the Cheesecake Factory. Yummy!! can't wait to go us it. I also wanted to share the cards that my kids created for me. It really touched my heart. I love them so much!! Take a peek

My daughter said she was inspired by my Valentine's bunny that I made to create this card. My son loves to draw. He title is "drowning in your love". I thought that was so sweet of him. I think they are both talented. My daughter is 8 and my son is 15.
Okay, I will talk to you soon. I a fininshing up a few swap itmes and I am starting on some new pieces and I will post when I am done. Stay warm.
