I feel the love!!!

I'll have the candilicious details of our Just Rite giveaways through Flourishes in a few seconds - but first..... my mail box over the past few days made me smile -- big time! And, so I want to share it with all of you! Some very talented ladies sent me happy mail!!!

Janine Orchard, my sis from my SBS5 group knows me way too well! She knows I cannot live without my coffee! So, in addition to a beautiful card with a nice little note full of birthday wishes, she sent me a gorgeous coffee cup and a pound of coffee! I told her I plan to use it for my afternoon cup when I usually head down to my mom cave to create. I asked if she infused it with some of her creativity!!! I sure hope so!
My friend Joyce Edwards is one that I have been stamping with for 8 years now! It's hard to believe we have been talking about inky fingers for that long! But now, in addition to being creative, she is my daughter's adopted third grandma! She made me this classy card!

My mother in law stamps but her first passion is quilling! Has anyone tried it? Her creations always amaze me because it just looks so time intensive! Check this beautiful card I got for my birthday!
My bloggin' bud Denise Gooch is a hoot- she wanted me to lasso a good time! LOL! I think the card is darling and the boots even come complete with BLING! You know, I love my bling!
Today, some of the most beautiful Christmas cards arrived and they both made me GASP! This first one is from Karen Wallace. I love the way Karen used the gold mirror paper and decked it out with an embossed tree and plenty of red rhinestones. She created a real stunner of a card!


And my bud Cheryl Moody sent me this little number! I love, love, love the angel and she decked it out with plenty of sparkle! Isn't it just a darling card! Me thinks so!
Gosh, I can't tell you how heartwarming it is to know someone took time out of their day to create something for lil ole me! Truly heartwarming! I will have to make some room on my wall of fame! :-)
Now to news of candy! To help you make sure the holiday is Just Rite, all Just Rite products in the Flourishes store will be 25% off starting December 1st!
