A Beautiful Gift and more gifts to come!!!

 Hello sweet blogging friends!  Today I wanted to share a special gift that arrived at my house several days ago and I just have not had time to post it until now!  This beautiful package came from my sweet sister in Christ, and blogging friend, Sarah George!  It made it's way all the way from India to NC and I am just thrilled with the beautiful goodness in this gift!

I had decided some time ago to choose someone from my faithful visitors who leave me comments to gift with some fun goodies, and I chose Sarah.  She says she's still new to stamping but I think you'll agree that she does absolutely BEAUTIFUL work!  She made me two cards using some of the things I had sent her, and these AWESOME quilled tags!  These are very special to me because while I bought the supplies to try quilling a couple years ago, I really never got in to doing it and I sooooo love the beautiful work that can be done with strips of paper!  Sarah has made these tags and I just can't wait to use them!  Then in the back of the photo you can see the most gorgeous clutch bag with so much delicate stitching on it!  I just love it!!!

Sarah... thank you from the bottom of my heart!  I certainly did not send a gift to get a gift, but I do want you to know how very much I appreciate your thoughtfulness!!!  

I hope you'll stop by Sarah's blog and enjoy some of her beautiful work!

My idea is that every so often, I will be continuing to select one name from my regular commenters, and sending them a little  package of love, because who doesn't enjoy new toys to play with?  So you never know when I'll be contacting you for your mailing address... I didn't want it to be about getting new people to follow my blog to get blog candy,  and then never come back.... I wanted it to be about you, the ones who visit frequently, and leave the most amazingly encouraging comments!  It's also about passing on the blessings!  God has given me much, and I want to pass that along!  So... if you are reading this and leave comments along the way... you could be next!  :)

Thank you!!!
