Candy Win ... a heartfelt thank you

Afternoon Folks,

At a time when my personal life has gone a bit pear-shaped and life has been getting me down, my luck has taken an odd turn and I've won some lovely candy :))


The postie delivered this lovely package of goodies today from Mandy, at Crafty Fox Cards. It's a very girly and feminine collection of paper (my favourite polka-dots and stripes), ribbons (and more polka-dots), flowers, card candy (even more polka-dots) and a cute little Nellie Snellen stamp I've not seen before. Opening up the parcel fairly brightened up my day.

With all my delightful granddaughters, great-granddaughters and, not forgetting, my new wee great-niece to make cards for I can see this kit being well-used this year :)

I'd like to pass on my heartfelt thanks to Mandy for this most generous candy  ... I love the contents and will enjoy being creative with it - receiving it made my day :)

Happy Crafting,
