Pressie in the Post

I am so excited, look what the postman brought me today!!!

My gorgeous friend Lavonne, who is the mother (& MIL) of my beautiful friends Kev & Bec (Kev of guitar card fame), lives in California. We have met several times over the years and really got to know each other well on her last visit 'down-under', enjoying visiting when I was over at Bec & Kev's, & going for coffee. She very patiently listens to all my ramblings. It was sad to see her go back. I keep telling her she should bring the rest of the family & move to Australia.

The box contains several of the 'Extreme' stamps (extreme surfer, skateboarder, guitar & elements), Matroyska dolls (my brother lives in Russia, so see these being very useful!), a gorgeous sentiment set 'Well Scripted', Choc-chip satin ribbon (yum), a paper piercer, the new 'Sweet pea' paper pack, the US in-colour markers and the new Scallop Border punch!!!! How happy & blessed, am I (doing a little jig)?

Thank you Lavonne, you are wonderful. Can't wait for your next visit down under (or maybe, if I stopped shopping, I could save up & visit the USA & stop by for a visit). MWAH!

Pity I have to work tonight, all my new rubbah, incl the gorgeous sets from the pre-buy, are calling me. (Sshh, mustn't listen, hands-held-firmly-over ears).

Catch you soon,
Love Fi xox

Oooh you lucky thing! I love those Extreme sets and was desperately hoping they'd be in the mini. I have a couple of them and my boys just love them! I look forward to seeing some of your creations with your new goodies. Have fun!
