A gift Beautifully wrapped
Such a Pretty gift inside!!!
Good Morning Lovely Ladies,
Today I want to share with you all this lovely gift that I received last week all the way from sunny Germany! It came in the pretties jiffy (padded) envelope I have ever seen! All flowery and beautiful.
Well it ended up being like a pass the parcel, I was actually that excited, but I was like the grumpy child at the party and was passing this parcel to nobody!!!!
The next layer of wrapping you can see above, a beautiful piece of card, delicately folded into an envelope, the card was really pretty and had texture too, it was all secured with a pretty pink tulle bow, with a lovely white flower to finish if off, I was eager to get inside but took the wrapping off so securely so as not to damage it, (( I really don't like throwing any part of such a gorgeous gift away)
I finally got inside the envelope and found the prettiest card inside, at first light I thought it was blue and white, but on closed inspection it was gorgeous shades of purple.
Saba has used Creative Expressions 8 x 8 embossing folder Scored Lines to create the textured background, I notice that you have got it to sit flat on your card Saba, what was your trick, mine seemed fine at first but I am still having issues with the card buckling in the folder?
The beautiful flowers that Saba has used are Creative Expressions Open and Complete Petal Camellia dies, designed by our lovely friend Sue Wilson, Saba has finished the flowers of beautifully with some flat back pearls, the different size and shape and position of the flowers make for a absolutely perfect composition, the card is totally gorgeous and the words inside were lovely too.
Do you know that there are only about 7 weeks (ish) until we get to see Sue again at Ally Pally, I hope that there will be plenty of you all going, so that we can have a pre= retreat meet up!
Thank you so very much Saba, you are so very kind, I have another gift card coming up maybe tomorrow too.
I want to thank you all also for your amazing responses to my post yesterday, I just wanted you all to know how very much I needed and appreciated all of your kind words of support over the past few weeks, it really has shown me how much you all enjoy coming in a catching up with each other, there is hardly ever a day goes by where someone has bought a smile to my face, whether it be Maureen's barrage balloon knickers or Saba tormenting the living daylights out of her long suffering husband.
But you are also there for the darker times when somebody needs some love and support, which has been proved over and over again, bringing this huge bond between us all, I can see that there will be some tears when it comes to saying goodbye after this retreat finishes in October, we may have to organise two next year, one in Spring and the other in Autumn, I only say this because I think that after meeting up that one weekend, saying 'see you in a years time' will sound devastating!
We will see how this one goes and go from there.
I have Pat and Sue coming over today for some crafting and laughter, I love my weekly highlight.
I will call in and catch up later ladies,
Love and hugs
