I Like Surprising People

and I have been working on something
Plodding away
Doing a little at a time
Lots of layers
To create a surprise for someone
Today I finished this

and now it’s on it’s way to surprise someone
Hope they like :)

I had left over paint from this page
I wiped it on some white cardstock to use later
Yesterday was that later :)

  12. Well that surprise is out, and I am literally breathless...I have tears streaming down my face and I can hardly type....

    I was having a bit of a tough time and then I hear the door bell ring...I look and I see my wonderful mailman standing there...mind you I am still in my pj's at 2:00 pm...hair standing on my head tooo...what a sight!!!

    I rip into this package being careful not to rip the information because it is from Australia and then I see these wonderful goodies.....JUST FOR ME and I keep looking and looking and crying tears of joy and then I try to figure out where it came from and then I FIGURE IT OUT!!!

    I LOVE YOU.....you are an angel from across the seas and it was as if you knew.....you just knew...and you were there in all you talented glory!!

    How can I say thank you....words are not enough...my heart will be with you always and I will remember your kindness everyday that I draw a breath!!!

    My angel, my friend...blessings to you!!!
