Recent RAKs + Paying It Forward

It always makes me so happy when I receive cards in the mail. I usually know when something is coming because you've asked for my mailing address but sometimes it's a big surprise! I received all of these gorgeous packages in the past three weeks. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Kary sent this gorgeous card and bookmark all the way from Malaysia! I just had to take a close up photo to show you how intricate both the card and bookmark are. They are absolutely gorgeous.

I love Kary's attention to detail and if you haven't been to her blog, I'm sure she'd love for you to pop by and say hi. Thanks so much, Kary, for thinking of me!

Angela sent this beautiful card knowing that I love those houses. Hopefully it came with some good luck, too, on the house-hunting front. ;) She sent along some fantastic papers, chipboards, epoxy stickers and some Unity sentiments from a kit that I passed up a couple of months ago. What a sweetie! If you haven't been to Angela's blog, you need to stop by and check out her amazing scrapping skills. Plus, she has three cards in Paper Crafts' July/August issue out this week!!!

Meg bought a Silhouette recently and linked to her first card HERE which prompted silly me to ask for a panda version. She surprised me with this stunner. Plus, have you seen what magnificence she's been making with it? Now I want a Silhouette!

Cindy posted about Pay It Forward at the beginning of the year and I was one of the lucky recipients of a handmade item from her - this gorgeous album! I just have to show you one of the inside pages so you can see the lovely papers and details. Please stop by Cindy's blog to see her wonderfully cute and whimsical creations. Thank you so much, Cindy, for this beautiful gift!

The first five ladies who responded to MY post saying they would like to play along are as follows and will be receiving something made by me by the end of the year:

Angela H.
Lindsey M-P
Ujjwal
Wendy ten Hove
and
Karen who said...

Please note: Karen, I have no way of contacting you since you don't have an email address linked to your profile and you don't have a blog. If I do not hear from you in the next month, I won't be able to send you anything but I do hope that you will get in touch with me!

Thanks for stopping by to enjoy these beautiful gifts from friends! I will have some Paper Smooches cuties for you shortly.
