The first is a RAK I received from Similin Stef on SCS with the Ink, Spray, Smash technique! It makes for such a cool background effect.
I received a BRAK (birthday RAK) from Deb Albright that was simply gorgeous. I just love it. It has one of my favorite stamps, Priceless from Stampin Up and real cute gingham ribbon. A one layer card, I'm so impressed, because personally I find those very difficult to pull off.
My design team buddies Kristine and Charmaine each sent me cards that they loaded with goodies! That was SO totally sweet!! Thank you girls, I can't wait till February! big wink!!!
My friend Audra, who I've known since my five year old was only 9 months old dropped by last week with a present and this super cute card. She used the bleaching technique, I've got to try this, its SO cool.
I also received a card from my new blogging friend Tricia! Tricia participated in the Prettie Girl challenge to "Try Something that Scares You" also recently created a notecard box based off my tutorial and a little card purse! She's super nice to boot, I love making new bloggy friends!!
I received this gorgeous card from Heather Phillips. I hadn't yet discovered her blog, so I was so excited to go check it out tonight. I have to say this is such a neat use of this stamp set that is so under-utilized in my collection. I love the spotlighting on the flower, and while it is hard to see in the photo, the bottom has the flowers tone on tone in Soft Sky.
Thank you everyone for sending me happy mail. I love to send it out, and now I know how exciting it is to get one myself!
