With Gratitude

Take a look at this! WooHoo! My friend, Julie Koerber sent this gorgeous card and clear stamps! Yes that's right, I have a Julie Koerber original in the house. The colors are so rich in real life! I wish all of you could come on over to see! It has been a joy getting to know Julie and it is with gratitude, I am thankful and blessed to call her friend. Not only is Julie a special friend, she is an amazing designer and has made it into the top 15 over at the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol contest! You can vote! Click here or go to Julie's blog for more detailed information! Aren't these the cutest? I was in a GinaK secret swappers and received these awesome stamped recipe cards for Halftime Chili and Steak Fajitas! I can't wait to give these recipes a try! They sound so yummy! I bet she is a fantastic cook, don't you?Thanks so much, Emsmomthestamper! I so appreciate it. It was so much fun! You know when you meet one of the sweetest gals around! Linsey is that kind of gal! She is so positive and encouraging and it has been a blast getting to know her better! Linsey sent me this awesome gift! It also had a Starbucks gift card which has been put to good use already. "wink" In the precious tin there was ribbon, brads, dew drops, gems, and metal tags! I have used quite a few of the tin contents on my GinaK preview creations! So, come back on Thursday, July 24 to get a peek at those cool embellishments and a sneak preview of Melanie Muenchinger's newest set! Don't forget to check out GinaK's blog for all the release party info! You do not want to miss all the previews! The design team has been busy! You've heard it before, the cliche' that says, stamper papercrafters are the nicest people you will ever meet and get to know! Well, it is so true, in the last few months I have been blessed to meet many, and it is with gratitude that I say thank you, for stopping by, making a comment, sending rak's, and the encouragement you send my way! I am blessed. HUGS,
