Today my worktop is a sea of folded laundry as I slowly work through the mountain that came home with us from the lake. Six sheets sets and assorted towels done and dusted...whew!
I pushed all that to the right so that I could show you all my special parcel..
It came all the way from Scotland... from the lovely Elizabeth at http://silverscrappers.blogspot.co.uk/
Elizabeth had a beautiful card on her blog that was sewing themed. Here is a link to that gorgeous card. Elizabeth's sewing themed card.
I left a comment drooling over the card and the paper...and...she emailed that she was sending it to me!!!
As this is my second parcel in as many days, I feel I need to assure you all, that if I comment on your blog...you don't have to send me something! teehee
Elizabeth emailed me to say that she had a couple of sheets of that patterned paper that she would like to send to me...
This is what greeted me when I opened the parcel...
Oh my!!! Let me tell you it is just gorgeous. The weight of the paper is just superb. It is all double sided paper...but it is much heavier than the double sided paper we can get over here. The papers are all from one line and all coordinate beautifully. I am still drooling over the flowers...they are in matching patterns to the patterned paper and are really nicely embossed around the edges. There are also 2 series of journaling cards that match the line as well.
Elizabeth tucked in this gorgeous handmade card. The cardstock weight is again superb. The weight is so superior to the cards I buy over here or even the cardstock that that we can buy to cut and fold our own cards...I was so very impressed with my lovely card!
The small photo of the flower looks a daylilly. It looks like a photo...I think maybe this is a flower from Elizabeth's garden!!! I love the way the inside patterned paper element inside, matches up with the card front.
I feel so blessed to have connected with such lovely blogging friends...
Well, off to check out all the other workdesks on WOYWW at the lovely Julia's Stamping Ground blog http://stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/
Time to leave some bloggy hugs!
