I Love Care Packages!

Normally I am not thrilled to go to the mailbox.  It's usually filled with junk mail or even worse...BILLS!!! But this month has been much nicer than usual!  I actually won blog candy from the ever fabulous, Button Junkie herself, Ms. Sherry! She has the most beautiful dyed wrinkled ribbon and we were supposed to comment and tell her our favorite color.  I just couldn't choose one and told her I loved all of them!  This is what I received in the mail...

along with this super sweet card!

Then today I checked my mailbox and there was a box of really yummy taffy from my favorite candy store in Gatlinburg!  My BFF and her DH went to Gatlinburg to celebrate their anniversary and she bought and sent  me a box! How sweet was that?!  But that's not what really made this package special.  She is VERY new to cardmaking. ( I roped her into attending one of my classes this spring and she was hooked!) The most wonderful part (not that I don't really, really love the taffy...) was this awesome card!!

She even decorated the inside!!! Unfortunately, she mentioned the fact that it would be really nice of me to share the taffy with my DH and two girls... piece each is still sharing right?!  Actually the box is rather large and I'm sure I will not have a problem with them taking more than a few  pieces!

Hope you have a wonderful evening and I hope to be able to post some of my creations before the weekend!


  1. What the gorgeousness!!! Indecisiveness really paid off got all the colors. :) Congratulations to you for winning the coolest blog candy. That looks beautiful.
    As for your BFF and the Taffy! That's a double whammy wonderful surprise! The hubs and I went to Gatlinburg for our honeymoon and you are right...the Taffy IS amazing!! BUT...her card is outstanding with the textured embossing on the inside. are blessed my friend.
    Kudos to you and I can't wait to see your creations over the weekend. :D
    P.S. I love reading your comments...I get the best laughs, but you really must expound on the aversion to cotton balls. :D
    Hugs to you!

  3. Oh Margaret I am so happy you like the ribbon colors I sent you. I can't wait to see them used on one of your fabulous cards. The taffy sounds yummy.
