Surprises From Wonderful Friends!

Hi Everyone~

Yesterday, I received this gorgeous piece of digital art from my friend Linda from Random Creativity~It was such a wonderful surprise!!



I just went out to my mailbox and found these amazing surprises too! My friend Lynne of Adorn sent this gorgeous card (on the right) and the most beautiful Paris stamped ribbon!!! Ira from Ira's Creacorner sent this beautiful matchbox and it is filled with these adorable silhouette tags!




Ira is from The Netherlands and she also sent these precious shoes~But, what she doesn't know is that from the time I was a little girl, I had a pair of these that my parents bought for me on a trip....I held onto them for over 20 years, but they were lost in an earthquake...Ira--It was such a surprise, I couldn't believe it!!!

Life has blessed me with such wonderful friends~

Big (((hugs))) to Linda, Lynne and Ira and to all of you too!!!

XO
Cindy

People give to you because you love and are loved in return! What a wonderful surprise-all three of them...but those little shoes are extra special because of the story that accompanies them. xo Diana

Dear dear friend, your story really touched me, indeed, I didn't know about the shoes. Now I'm even more thankful that I sent you these! Big hugs from the Netherlands, Ira xox
