My dear friend Amy over at the blog Love Made My Home organized a Christmas card swap again this year. It's so fun as it's all random and you never know whom you may be matched up with for a swap. Last year I swapped with a lovely Friend in Australia that I hadn't even known before that time. And due to that swap we still visit each other blogs!
This year was really neat as Amy, completely by accident, ended up matching with me a lovely Lady named Patsy...whom I had just started getting to know and become Friends with before the holiday season. We share a mutual love of cooking, vintage finds, and card making. When we found out we were paired together we were tickled and communicated about it back and forth. We both agreed that we were okay with sending a little more than a card, as I really wanted to send her some of my homemade sugared pecans and some little extras. And she was SO generous and sent me a lovely box full of goodies!! I took some photos of just some of it to give give you an idea:
She sent me a whole lovely bundle of paper crafting goodies! Papers in different sizes, stickers, card pieces, and even more stamps than you see here! She even sent me some neat card layouts from classes she goes to about card making. Completely above and beyond.....but so fun!! ;)
Here's the lovely Christmas card she made me for me and then SENT ME THE STAMP she used to make it too!!
And the inside - so lovely! I think I've made another forever Friend.
