More Goodies to Share!

I finally had some free time this week to play with some paper!
So the first challenge I wanted to play was one of my favorites,

Tag Tuesday

The challenge was to put a calendar on your tag..  And I had
just received this little calendar from a Jar swap..



Of course I picked the month of October.. My favorite Month
Can you guess why?  Yep it's my Birthday month..




This was mostly just made by layered paper.. No stamping!
A little distressed ink..   Some sewing,  as you know I love to sew
on my projects..  Some seam binding and Lace..  flowers and buttons
Oh it sounds so pretty..

If you want to play along or go check out the other tags just
hop over to Louise's Blog  (Kard Krazy).

Time for some more sharing...
Yes I got a package from a land far away..

A wonderful and talented fellow blogger sent me some wonderful
 ATC all the way from Norway..

Linda (her name is Linda also)  is so talented just look at the
 wonderful little pieces of Art she sent me.




Aren't they wonderful..

and that's not all, I also got some
wonderful doilies, ric-rak and ribbon..
to play with..

Linda~

Not just one tag but two! I just love the yellow and blue color combo that you used. I dont know why I dont think of it more often.

Its so much fun to get stuff in the mail. It always means so much doesnt it... That someone thought about you enough to put together a few things and send. Really is special.

Thanks for your visit and nice compliment on my Tag. I really had a lot of fun making it. If you are interested in some more tags I posted a few more and cards to this morning at http://scrappingwithsherry1.blogspot.com/

Take Care~ Sherry

Hope to see you again soon.

Hi Linda,

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a sweet comment. I'm hoping to have Brenna's pie crust lesson in the mail by the end of the week; I hope she likes it.

I took a little tour of your Happy Place blog and your 365 blog and I especially love your photography style. I think my favorite is the close-up of the light bulb but it is certainly hard to choose.

Have a great day,
Susan
