Lovely Stuff

This post is not to show off anything I've made but to say thanks to some fellow blogger friends for some truly lovely stuff indeed.

Yesterday Mr Postie delivered this lot to me from my lovely friend Sue.....

She knows my pennies aren't for crafting at the moment so stamped me these images, punched me some leaves and some fabulous borders in perfect vibrant colours for me.

And then, in preparation for my baby arriving, in memory of my precious son Flynn and to celebrate the arrival of Blake, I received these beautiful cards....

This one is from Keryn, so much detail and perfect image and sentiment (sorry I can't make it any bigger, it goes blurry on me!)

This one is from Chrissie to help me through Flynn's anniversary. I adore the simplicity of this one and the gentle sparkle on the butterfly wings that doesn't show up on my my photo (sorry Chrissie)

This one from Sue to say good luck and hope all goes well. Sue and I used to work together and when I left 'the office' it was in a bit of a hurry some years ago and Sue has never forgiven my team for not getting me a leaving to have a baby card back then and has made me one each time. Love you Sue xx

This one is also from Sue to welcome Blake to the world, isn't it gorgeous? Sue was secretly delighted I had a boy as she doesn't like making pink cards, it's just not her colour! I love the detail in this and the gorgeous image.

This one is from Donna. Isn't it a cutie? Again so much detail and effort has gone into this gorgeous card. the flowers even have tiny little blue brads in the centre.

And finally this one from Chrissie. I love how the image has been cut out by hand and the fabulous train punch on embossed card. Even more special for having my little chaps name on the front.

I'll treasure these handmade cards from my friends as much if not more than any of the gifts we received. Something so special to receive.

So to my fab friends - a massive thank you for thinking of me.
