Happy Mail...and another sweet surprise

It's just me again. ;) I wanted to show you what was waiting for me in my mailbox yesterday from one of my sweet blogging friends, Patti: She recently offered that stamp set as blog candy, and I won! ;D I adore Verve stamps (especially the ones with Scripture), and I'm looking forward to getting this one inky! Thanks so much, Patti!

And she tucked this darling birthday card in with it too!: The patterned paper is from Close To My Heart, the apron is paper pieced, Patti's coloring is wonderful, I love the tiny pearls in the flower centers, and the cake is deliciously sparkly (Stickles?) --VERY cute! What a fun surprise! Thanks again, Patti --you really made my day!! ;)

Oh, and before I sign off for now, I thought I'd throw in another (though not as recent) sweet surprise. Not stamping-related though.... One afternoon last month Chloe and I had gone shopping for a few hours. When we came back home it was dark, but as Chloe got out of her side of the car she noticed something written in the snow (NOTHING gets by that girl, I tell ya!). Turns out my hubby decided to have a little fun with the garden hose in our front yard. (I had to take a picture of it so I can remind him of it if ever he gets really upset with me. lol) I couldn't get it all in one shot, but you can get the idea. ;) Isn't he the sweetest?! Hope you're enjoying your weekend. ;)

Thanks so much for the visit, and I hope you'll stop by again soon. Until then, many blessings to you!
