Here are the beautiful goodies from Kim
In the first photo is a picture of everything that was in the 2 boxes and the second shows a closer picture of all the cards Kim from Kim's Treasures made and included, along with the oh-so-cute little tote bag decorated with one of the cute yo-yo's she also made. Sorry the pictures are a little dark, but if you click on them to make them bigger, it looks better. I love all the colors of the cards, the bag, and really they coordinate with the main prizes, too. I told her I almost squealed with delight when opened the boxes and my family will tell you that I'm not a squealy, girly-kind of girl. The cards are so pretty! I really envy anyone who has the ability to make such lovely, professional-looking cards, as my rubber-stamping abililites leave much to be desired. I'm sure I will find it hard to ever actually use the cards, since I'll be wanting to hoard them for myself. Love the birdhouse, compote, and plate, too! Everything really! I wanted to get this post in before I went to take a nap.
BTW, I was notified by one of my art friends, Beth, that I won a prize from her blog, too! I was one of her visitors who knew the identify of her mystery bug, which was a katydid. Beth has a blog I love to visit to see beautiful photos of her flowers and lawn and what she's been up to with her art. She is a blogging buddy whom I've actually had the pleasure of meeting in person, as she just lives in Tennessee. Her gracious mother, Lottie, was kind enough to have me come stay overnight so that we could all visit along with another art group friend from New York, Jane. All very wonderful ladies!
So, wow, I really am being greatly blessed lately!
