High Hopes Challenge/Happy Mail

HIGH HOPES - challenge 1

So i finally got another challenge card done, this time its for the High Hopes challenge, which was a birthday card but must have brads on it. This is my attempt, again a quick card, I seem to be making alot of them lately. Just not enough hours in my days, not nearly as much crafting time as I'd like! I have used paper from the DCWV Rockstar stack, the text is one of the word circles from Craftworkcards. I've coloured the image in using my pro-markers, as they say practice makes perfect, and im still practicing with them!!

Over the last week I have received some very happy mail, firstly this gorgeous wallet folder below was sent to me by the wonderful Zoe and its filled with some lovely images. Thank you Zoe I adore it, you are very clever!
The following day I received this gorgeous envelope from my lovely friend Tracey again with some lovely stamped images for me to play with. I am a lucky girl having so many talented crafty friends.

Then to top it all yesterday I received this wonderful package from my good friend Jill who has been spoiling me! She made me this adorable House mouse card (I love these stamps) and also all these yummy craft goodies. I have been desperate to get my hands on the two basic grey stacks that she sent me, she must be telephathic! Also she sent me a bag of charms and a promarker pen to go with the set she previously sent me, I missed these off the photo - sorry.

Look at this gorgeous organza bag full of ribbons, I so love my ribbon, a girl can never have enough ribbon as far as im concerned! or flowers!!

So thank you girls from the bottom of my heart, hugs to you all.
