Happy Mail and Photo Heavy

Hello there ...
I'm getting organised for my trip tomorrow but I just had to pop in and say a HUGE thank you to 2 sweet blog friends who sent me happy mail ...

My friend Sylvia sent me a beautiful handmade card and some sweet angel scraps ... (that's what we call them over here) 


I'm old enough to remember 'scrap books' when you filled an ordinary book with things like the above and did swaps with your friends ... (Do any of you know what I'm talking about?)
Isn't that card just beautiful!! Sylvia is one talented lady!

As you may know some of her family live in Oklahoma and you can imagine, she has been very concerned ... so to know with all that going on in her life ... she thought of me ... well I am humbled ... Thank you my friend

Now the talented Linda B. (Hands to Work Hearts to Love makes the most exquisite albums and cards and we decided to help each other out ... I couldn't get the bags needed for the albums and Linda couldn't get the transparencies ... hence we did a swap ... 
Well, her package to me just arrived and rendered me speechless ... Not only did she send me the bags ... but a gorgeous card ... AND ... one of her amazingly beautiful albums!! 

I know this album has been posted on her blog  (do hop over and check out her work) ... but given just how much detail and just how stunning it is ... I am going to show it again 








... And the card 


Even my husband was rendered speechless!
Thank you so much Linda ... 

I am truly blessed to have such wonderful, thoughtful friends ...
And thank you all for letting me share this with you ...

Wow, the cards are great - and the album is to die for! And yes, I know what you mean about the "old" scrap books. We used to have what was called a poetry book and you would give it to all your friends and they would write a little poem in it and decorate it with these "angel scraps" and such, sometimes they came with glitter. I have to go look for mine...

Joanne Leddy said...

Hugs ...
