Oh Happy Christmas Day!

I had a wonderful Christmas and I hope ya'll did too! I thought I would share some of the mazing crafting gifts I received. First is my Secret Santa-Sandy. She remembered a conversation I had earlier in the year about my dismal lack of a circle cutter. I can typically draw shapes fairly well but circles give me a hard time. A few weeks ago I purchased one of those Fiskar's Shape Cutters so my circles would not be boxy and wouldn't you know - it was BROKE! I took it back and refused to get another one. It was a rough day. Well, Sandy is such a sweatheart. She bought the Creative Memories Cutting System with a circle template! I love it. She will be getting a thank you card with a big circle!

Next I will talk about this strange couple named Vern and Vixena Elfington. This couple sent out tons of boxes under a mysterious identity and they came from the NE SE BIPOLAR USA! Mr. and Mrs. Elfington had so many excited and confused because we did not know their identity until latter last night. But they sent out 25 boxes to our RCS group full, I mean jammed, with scrapbooking and cardmaking stuff! I am talking stickers, rub-ons, paper, punches, sizzlits, border makers, font CD's, ribbon and the list goes on and on and on. Dave and April, aka, Mr and Mrs Elfington, truly brought the spirit out in our group. They were awesome!

I got a beautiful card from Sandy as well today. So its a little late, it is still a beautiful card. Check it out!



Here is a beautiful card I got from Mel, another RCS member. I love her embossing!





Jessica sent me a wonderful Thank You card since I was her secret santa.



I hope ya'll have a wonderful New Year! Mahalo for stopping by!
