WOYWW # 168 - Another parcel....Oh My!!!


 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!

If I get tearful and say I get nothing like that in my post only bills do you think I'd get the sympathy vote? ;D
What a wonderful surprise and beautiful papers...the colours are so pretty.
I can't wait to see what you create using them.

Thanks for sharing and popping over to my place earlier ~ Have a great week :D

Thanks for the comment you left me - the distressing brushes are good for when you want a bit of colour on the edge, but more subtle than actually sponging it. How generous of Elizabeth - what a lovely box to receive - enjoy! Thanks for sharing your workspace. Hope you have a good week. Hazel WOYWW #8 x

Happy Mail is the best!!! these papers are so gorgeous.. Elizabeth is so lovely and generous.. the card is Stunning love that flower I wonder if it is from Elizabeth's Garden? Enjoy! Have a happy week, Hugs May x x x#4

Elizabeth said...

Hi, so pleased that you are pleased with the package - and it arrived in super quick time ... believe me 10 days is impressive when it takes standard size letters two or three days to come from England to my house in Ayr! It truly is snail mail!!!

I didn't know that our paper and card is a better weight than anything you have there - I've learned something today.

The flower on the card is indeed a photo of a lily from my own garden so well spotted :) Last year out lilies did exceptionally well so I took quite a few photographs just to preserve the memory and then I thought they would make great toppers for cards too.

After the washing comes the ironing, groan - better to visit the folks on WOYWW. Happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #105

Mary Jo Rhoda said...

You are one really lucky girl, wow what a wonderful surprize to get all that and a card. Blagland is a great place where friends meet and share. It is good to give, just as much as it is to receive.

Happy crafting.
