A VERY SPECIAL GIFT.............

Hello girls! I just wanted to share something with you all today! I got a package in the mail from one of my AWESOME friends (Kristine Breach) who also happens to be an Inspirational Inkette! She is sooo... talented! If you haven't seen her blog yet, please check it out here. She will give you such great inspiration, her work is truly amazing!!!

I just have to share the story with you. Kristine & I have spoke on the telephone many times. A few months ago, we were on the phone chatting and sending each other pics on IM & she sent me some pics of her handmade ornaments. I told her how impressed I was with them & how pretty they are.......... She said they take alot of time but she enjoys making them for friends and family right before Christmas.

So, the day before yesterday, I went out on my porch and there was a box from Kristine and I was all smiles..... from ear to ear, might I add! I opened it and I was blown away! It truly touched my heart! It was so beautiful girls! Not only was it beautiful, but the fact that she took the time to make an ornament for me, meant the world!!! And it was made with 2 of my favorite colors.... I was almost in tears!!! Here it is, isn't it one of the most beautiful ornaments you have ever seen???? PLEASE NOTE: My camera takes horrible pics (as far as the color)

Then I noticed that there was a card in the bottom of the box and when I opened it I was in aww... then, I read the inside of the card and just about BALLED MY EYES OUT!!! The sweet, kind things that friends can say to make your day, huh??? The card is so stinkin' cute too! Oh my goodness, she is Mardi Gras Angelica....... Aren't these just so beautiful? This gift completely made my day!!! There is nothing like getting a special handmade gift from a special friend! Thanks so much Kristine! YOU ROCK GIRLFRIEND!!!
