What did I receive…..September Part 3

As the end of the month was drawing near and other participants where thanking their Sisters I was getting very anxious. I’d received all my items and wanted to thank my Sister. I asked on group for her to please let me know but no replies.

Well I found out why a day or 2 later.

It was because of this.

Card 3 & Gift 2

My wonderful, generous and very creative Secret Sister had one more parcel on it’s way to me.

Isn’t it gorgeous. If you’ve read my blog before now you might remember that the Raspberry Tart DSP is one of, if not, my favourite DSP pack in the current IB&C and my new favourite stamp set is of course ‘Great Friend’ from the Spring Mini.

So would you like to know what I received? I’ll go clockwise again starting from the front.

A Days-to-remember calendar for me to decorate, on top of that is a lovely crystal handmade angel (which my girls have already informed me could go on our Christmas Tree this year…,  a lovely card purse which inside contained the personalised Post-It Note holder (also the Angel and card where packaged in there too), then up the back is another wonderful bag which when you untie the ribbon the front and back fold down to reveal a little box which contained 2 little christmas cross-stitch kits (super idea and must make sure I get them both done before Christmas), next is that gorgeous box (there’s a close up of that coming) which inside contained some SU product including ribbons, clips, heat & stick powder, dazzling diamonds, Stampin Dimensionals and a Quickie Glue Pen, then there is the card. I love how Kylie used the leaf stem to create the background and I also love how she used half backed pearls on the butterflies.

Here’s a close-up of the gorgeous box with the paper ruffle.

Isn’t that gorgeous. I’ll be trying this out soon.

So that’s it for all the wonderful items I received. I was totally spoilt beyond any expectations. If you are reading this Kylie, thank you so much for being a fabulous Secret Sister. I sure hope I get to meet you in person one day to thank you properly. Maybe Convention 2010????

Now even though I’ve shared all the items I sent and those that I received I will have something else to show you tomorrow and hopefully on a more regular basis too.

Happy Stamping

You were lucky to have Kylie as a secret sister. I've been a follower of her blog for some time. The rasp tart goodies are gorgeous. TFS,
