RAK Day!!!

So I came home to find a large stack of mail, an extremely heavy SU box and a dead plant. 2 out of 3 ain't bad, right? My hubby is out of town on business for the week so I decided to blow up the house and get rid of what I don't use anymore. I completely gutted my craft room and have filled 3 large storage containers full of "craft garage sale" items. So this Saturday I will be hosting a Stamp/Craft Garage Sale at my house and the world has been invited. LOL I have so many stamp sets, current and retired....new and used...I have ribbon, punches, cutters, candles, containers, cards, craft magazines, paper organizers, tools and so much that I just haven't touched in years so it's GOING! Amongst the patterns I was sorting through, I found a $265 check from my old apt complex from 2002!!!! How could I have NOT cashed that?!?! So I'm going by there today to see if they will cut me a new one...I doubt it but it doesn't hurt to try. Ok so that was the beginning of my night....here is the good stuff. I sorted through my mail and found not 1, but 4 gorgeous cards!!!! All just for me. ;) Here they all are...

This one is from Kristine (by PPDT sistah) I love the DP on it, she always finds the cutest papers!!!!

This is from Julie Masse (another PPDT sistah) and contained some fabulous images for me to play with (sorry, can't show ya just yet) ;) I just love how simple yet TOTALLY adorable this card is. I've been dying to get my hands on that Faux Ribbon set over at Papertreyink and now I think I've been sold on it. Oh and Jules, I MUST have that ribbon!!! :)

This is from Julie Campbell (another PPDT sistah) and I was her DT Sistah this week for the weekly PPDT challenge which was dry embossing....she didn't have a brass stencil or even a light box so she created her own template using a flower die cut and chipboard!!! Isn't that fabulous!?!?! She's so clever!

Lastly, this arrived from an unknown address.....and when I opened it up I was just in awe. This is a RAK from Kandi Kwirant from the Paper Pretties Yahoo group and she just wanted to wish me a big "congrats" for making the PP Design Team. Isn't that sweet?!?!!
So needless to say, I had a FANTASTIC Monday....my house is a mess, my craft room is in shambles, I need to finish baking & wrapping 400 cookies and 400 cupcakes by tonight and then clean EVERYTHING up before the hubby returns on Thursday night. Yea....miracles can happen right? ;)

Julie Masse said...

400 cupcakes... that is a tad bit of work. Here's hoping you get your money again. Beautiful card.
