Awesome friends - and same paper 2 ways...

So, have I mentioned that I have some of the COOLEST friends??? Well, I do. The other day, I got a package in the mail...thought it my be my order from Just-Rite, but nope...it had a return address from New Hampshire.

My SWEET friend Paulette sent a bunch of goodies to me - just because. Isn't that AWESOME??? Of course, I put everything away, and didn't take a picture before doing so, but lots of fun stuff for me to play with...a pretty spellbinders die, some awesome silk flowers, rub-ons, an awesome card with a picture of her beautiful children, some ribbon, some great 8x8 paper, which I've used today.

In the paper I rec'd, I used one of the patterns for 2 different cards.

One is for Paulette - to thank her for her awesome generosity...
This used the great pink papers she sent, as well as the SU! Rub-ons. Easy-peasy, simple layers, a rub-on, a little bling (also from Paulette) and instant pretty card!

This other card is for my sister's birthday. Can't really see from the pictures, but I went over all of the really light flowers on the paper with my clear spica glitter pen. Very subtle, but pretty shimmer. The butterflies are the Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch, enhanced with a little aMuse creative candy. The sentiment is from PTI's Birthday Basics.

Thanks for stopping by today - hope you enjoy your Sunday - back to work for me tomorrow...BLECH. I really enjoyed the time off with my girls this last week and a half.

Until next time!!

Love these cards, Tracey! You are so creative--you always seem to know what to do to add a little extra "wow" to your creations! Our Paulette packages were amazing, weren't they! I know she'll love her card.

Tracey- these cards are lovely! I love the butterflies and bling on them. So pretty! I think pink and brown together is such a great color combo. You did an awesome job on these!

Tracey, these are gorgeous! So soft and feminine. It's really nice having friends who surprise you with stuff like that isn't it? Your sister is going to love that butterfly card!
