Pink Birthday Girl

All pink birthday card for Presley who is turning 4 years old and her favorite color is PINK!
 I hope she likes her card, because I feel that this card is more appropriate for an older girl.  I had a hard time making a child's card, and I feel so rusty since I haven't been stamping in the last couple of months.

Have a great weekend!

My Teacup from Lisa

 I participated in Stephanie's Then Enchanting Rose 10th. Teacup Exchange.  I have participated in several of her teacup exchanges and have never ever been disappointed!  It's such a great way to meet new friends, with the hope that we communicate with each other the old-fashion way: snail mail!  I am working on it...!!!

I received this beautiful and so very feminine teacup from Lisa, Little Bits of Blessings.
 I am simply in love with my new teacup!!!  It's simply darling!
I haven't used it yet...just waiting for that special moment where I can actually sit down and savor a hot cup of tea and my "me" time.

 I love every little beautiful and touching detail of the teacup, saucer and pretty and delicate.

 Lisa included so many special treats and goodies.  I love her handmade teacup card holder, tags and her handwritten letter.  I learned so much about her, and it feels like I known her for life.

She knows me well!

 For a summer quilt project!

 OMG...Scrabble tiles!

 Lisa sent me my favorite tea, delicious chocolate, a set of blank pretty cards (always so handy), napkins and cute straws!  Oh...and the cutest string of butterfly lights!!!  I see a theme here...butterflies!

This cute gazebo will be decorating my future miniature garden pot. 

Thank you so much Lisa for all of the well thought out gifts and my beautiful new teacup!  Words cannot express the joy your package brought to my life!

A HUGE THANK YOU to Stephanie for coordinating such a wonderful party!  I really appreciated her time and effort of bringing us together!
