Stationary Gifts

Close up of the detail in the Birthday Card.  I just love it!
When I went to the mailbox today I reached in to find a very unexpected package from my sister.  I love surprises so I hurried home to open the envelope and find out what was inside. 

The first thing I pulled out of the envelope was this beautiful card.  It's made with Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White card stocks.  She's made good use of her Top Note die, Finial Press textured embossing folder, and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit for the butterflies.  The image from the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set on page 111 of the IB&C is one of my favourites and she's stamped it in Pirouette Pink and Old Olive.  Love this card! 

Knowing how much I love "all things" paper, my sister also sent me two little note pads that have beautiful designs imprinted on the outside. The covers are just stunning.  These notebooks have small magnets inside the top and bottom folds so they close and hold shut, and inside each is a small note pad.  Well, you can bet your bottom dollar I'm going to be designing some of these in Stampin' Up DSP to hold post it notes.  I love them!  She also included a larger pad that has an elastic that holds the cover shut and it's filled with blank pages.  Love that one too!  Just the right size for my purse.  So without further ado, here's a view of what she sent.  Enjoy!

These peacocks are stunning.  Wish you could see the colors in real life!
Full view of my beautiful birthday card........ loved the verse inside.  It said:
My heart is filled with thanks
For the wonderful friend and sister you are
And how much you mean in my life.....
And with wishes for all the happiness
That someone as special as you deserves

Thanks sis for the wonderful gift and card.  You are so special and mean so much to me too!

awww thanks Penny for stopping by my blog and adding me to your list of blog followings :).

I just am in love with these butterflies lately, might be because we are under 6 feet of snow here in New England. I miss summer!

You have lovely cards on your blog!
