A PACK OF WONDERFUL SCRAPBOOK GOODIES FROM A SWEET FRIEND

Good evening to you all;  we are getting rain again and I have a small lake in my back yard again.  I am not sure but I think I saw a squirrel water skiing out there, and my sweet little chipmunk  tossing a beach ball,,,,,,,,,,  lol;   Yesterday with such bad storms we had some Tornados  pass through ,  one was a few miles from our town, but where it hit did such damage to a Trailer park, it was so sad to see it all on the News, my heart we out to all the ones who lost their homes.  So tomorrow we had a high wind warring again, with some storms.  I will be Praying that it is not as bad as the other day.   OK  enough about the weather here... 

I have been very slow and not very thoughtful in posting about the wonderful packet of  Scrapbook goodies that Kathy from Country Chintz.  If you have not been to her blog, well then you really should pay her a visit. I just love her blog, she is a very talented lady. She makes such cute and pretty scrapbook  tags and trading cards and just about any thing scrappy.  Kathy is just a sweet dear friend,  we were trading  scrapbooking cards , so when her rather large envelope arrived  I was so surprised to see not just a card, but a packet of beautiful tags and photos of all sorts for scrapbook ing.  Kathy always go's above and beyond the call of duty.  I did send her a huge Thank You email to let her know I did get it....................   But I did not get around to share it with you all, and that is a very shameful thing.  So here are some photos of what she sent me....

There was so much in there I could hardly get them all in there.  So I had to take some at different angles.

You know I don't think I have shown you every thing, some are buried underneath.  I have been taking them all out at times just to look at each one, I have not used them yet, but when I do I will make sure to do a post  about it.    Kathy also has a very kind and caring heart, she is still waiting on my trading card, not even one unkind word about me being so late on sending it out.  But then that is how Kathy is with every one she comes in contact with, she is a true friend. 

I am working on her packet now, after what she sent me I would not feel right just sending her one little ol'  trading card.... lol   I am have great fun finding some really great goodies for her.   Now I am usually not so bad about things like this, but it has not been a very great  year for our family so far.  Now I am not making excuse's  here  but life just got in the way this time..... 

So Kathy  I thank you again so very much for you sweet thoughtful and very generous packet...   I am so over whelmed with   you  kindness....    So if some of you have not been by her lovely blog, pop over and give her a  look see, you will so enjoy it...

I have my new  Vintage Easter Swap Partner  and her name is Kathy, another Kathy...lol   So I am so excited to have met a new friend, she has not blog yet, but she is a sweet lady. And I can't wait to get started on her  basket.  Heidi  hosts such wonderful swaps, and we all have such fun getting to meet and make new blog friends, and to make them something special just for them.  Heidi  does just an amazing job at keep track of  all of us, and making sure every little detail is just so,  So Heidi you have  knocked this one out of the ball park............  

Ok I had better end this, it is quit long now... I hope I have not lost any of you... lol   So until next time;; God Bless

Hugs;

Wowsa! That was quite a collection of lovely bits and pieces from Kathy...so much potential.

I'm looking forward to getting my studio dug out and trying a few things myself. It's been a long, cold winter in terms of inspiration, but I am feeling stirrings of life within my creative side.

BTW, I'm not sure how long your blog layout has been up, but I LOVE it! Has such a warm, cheerful, chic feel to it.

Blessings on the weekend - it's rolling up on us fast. Hurray!

That is nice bunch of things you got there. So pretty too. I had to laugh at the idea of the squirrel waterskiing. Too funny. I hope you are all well now and that your hunny is too. Take care now.
