This is from my sweet friend Valerie, her blog is called Bastelmania, you must visit her! The sweet hand made card with the beautiful fence and flower, I wish you could see the gorgeous deep embossing on it too, my camera did not really pick it up.
This is a close up of the beautiful roses and daisies and look at that ribbon! I have never seen anything like this before! The red satin ribbon has sweet little chipboard butterflies and it is a double strand with the pearl balls on it too, just gorgeous! The beautiful blue sheer ribbon has beautiful satin flowers along with the double strand and a pearl ball and a leaf, totally gorgeous!
And the suspense continues, see the pretty package all wrapped up in tissue and more pretty paper underneath I forgot to photograph. Like how I made you wait like I did :)
Now look what was inside! Isn't this the most gorgeous wall plaque you have ever seen! There is so much detail in this, the tiny seed beads, the jewelry pieces, the dragonfly, flowers and strands. There are so many layers to this, it is totally exquisite!
All of this my sweet friend Valerie sent me! I could not believe my eyes when I opened this package of sheer beauty. I actually gasped when I opened the little wrapped package with the plaque inside, I had seen it on her blog and really admired all the intricate details, along with being my favorite color combination too. I must say this really did make me tear up, the sweetness of someone so far away, that I get to be friends with through our blogs. I am so fortunate, and so very grateful, for the wonderful gifts and for the wonderful friend you are Valerie. Oh and I did not photograph it but the box was all decorated with an angel and flowers and a star, my mail man said there must be something very special inside here, I knew there was. There was also a quote which was very touching and oh so true. "A friend is one who can touch your heart from across the world or across the room" Anonymous. I am hanging this in my craft room so I can admire it all day long. And to remind me how fortunate I am to be blogging and meeting new friends across the oceans. Thank you Valerie, you totally made my (I was going to say day) month! I am really touched by your kindness. Please do stop by her blog, she is an amazing artist on so many levels using so many different mediums too! And I keep telling her she should be writing a book, she is an excellent author too!
