Gift From a Friend!

Hi all and happy Wednesday! Hope you are having a fabulous week! I wanted to share a very sweet R.A.K. I received from an equally sweet lady! I had a week recently that wasn't just stressful, it was crazy. Being the sweet woman that Stacy Morgan is, I got this beautiful gift in the mail recently!

She used the new Let's Have Tea set from Flourishes to create this BEAUTIFUL gift set that I am just so very thankful for! She told me she used a container that used to hold sliced apples that she puts in her twin sons' lunches. Golly jeepers, I really need to think about 'repurposing' more after seeing what she did!

I love the blue she used! And, I love this beauty of a card she created....

Here's a close up of the top of the box. Just beautiful with the pearl accents and that gorgeous coloring!

And, if that wasn't enough... look what was inside? My FAVORITE candy bars, some beautiful smelling candles (they remind me of fresh laundry - so sweet, clean, and relaxing!) and then, because we've been hit by bitter cold weather here in Montana, some hot chocolate. YUM! Her "orders" were to take a bath, light the candles and follow it all up with some hot chocolate. Isn't that sweet, in more ways than one!?!?!
Just had to share! Thanks Stacy!!! I'll be back soon with some of the fun I've been whipping up in my craft room. I actually took some down time from the day job just to be creative. We all need those moments, don't we??? ;-)
