Smiley Hugs to My Friends! { Awesome Mail Week }

This past week has been the best mail week *ever*! In my opinion, there is just nothing better than receiving handmade cards from others!

The *gorgeous* card on the left is from none other than Charmaine, of "Oodabug Alley" fame. Isn't it fabulous?! She's used two of the new Stampin' Up! in-colors, River Rock and Soft Sky. They are on my wish list now, for sure! Thank YOU so much Charmaine! :)

The next card (on the right) is SUPER bright and cheerful, just like the cardmaker herself... Myrna, a special friend from The Stamp Shack. She even included a couple *cute* little 2-step stampin flower stamps that I can't wait to use. Thank YOU so much Myrna! :)

Last but not least, I received a wonderful surprise RAK package from Debbie, "1 of 2 Shoes", at The Stamp Shack. Little did she know, I was doing a personal challenge this past week to create cards using scalloped punches. Would you believe she sent me a huge assortment in all colors, shapes and sizes?! I used two of them on my "Hoppy" card yesterday. (see previous post)

And that's not all! She sent me one of my ALL-TIME favorite stamps too... the Aloha Fishing Mouse by Great Impressions! OMG, am I going to have FUN with this! : )

And take a look at the beautiful card she sent with it. (below) It is just so lovely and her comments inside *so* very kind and encouraging! I should have taken a photo of her padded envelope too...a work of ART! She fancy doodled all around my name and address. And yes, I noticed the smiley face Debbie! You really must check out her blog, "The Shoe Closet". Debbie is The QUEEN of prismacoloring! Her gallery at The Shack proves this! Check it out...you'll be amazed! Thank you SO MUCH Debbie!

Bless you all and thank you again for inspiring me and motivating me to continue stamping and sharing my creations with you via this blog. And my "Quote of the Day" seems so appropriate here . . .

"If I had a star for everytime you made me *smile*, I would be holding the night sky in my hand."

Pam, I can't think of a better person to receive the Rockin' Girl Blogger award. Your creations are such an inspiration to me and your blog is one of my favorites! What a beautiful quote of the day too! You are one Rockin' gal! :)
