A while ago I was on eBay looking at retired SU sets to add to my ever growing stamp collection, there was an absolutely gorgeous set of Lilacs, that took my fancy, but I didn't win them.
Then a little while later I spotted them on a blog that I visit regularly Flower Sparkle owned by the very talented Ruth, (I know that if I ever need some inspiration I will get tons from there!) and to my surprise she had won the lilacs set and had made some beautiful creations with it.
I left her a comment straight away, and received an email from Ruth asking me if I would like a card made by her. Well of course I jumped at the chance! A card made by someone those blog I had admired for so long!
On Wednesday I came home to a 'while you were out' card from the post office and yesterday eagerly went down there to retrieve it. I was so excited, and couldn't even wait to get back to the car before I tore open the envelope, and WOW WOW WOW! That's all that could be heard for ages, and here is why
Not only a fabulous card, but a trio of wonderful gifts from Ruth! A card with decorated envelope, bookmark and a gift box.
Here's a closer look
I love the colour combo, and it features my favourite things, glitter, ribbon and gems!!
I'd never thought of making bookmarks before but I will definitely be giving it a go. Again gorgeous sparkle with the added glitter and I HAVE to get some of those jumbo eyelets now.
And finally a fabulous little gift box......................
with a girls best friend inside...CHOCOLATE!! Yum Yum, haven't eaten it yet, but I can see a mid-afternoon cuppa with these chocs in my future.
I can't thank Ruth enough, she is truly wonderful. I'm glad that you won the stamps, you have done them justice.Thank you Ruth xx
