Happy Mail

This is pretty much what the package looked like when I opened it.
However, I had already rifled through it before I took the picture.

I went to the post office today to get my mail for the first time in a week and what should I find?!!! Some Happy Mail from Carla at My 1/2 Dozen Daily! Remember my other Happy Mail post when I told about being in Carla's Secret Sister Swap but I didn't get anything? Well, Carla and Cindy teamed up to make the Secret Sister Swap super special:) I got TWO packages instead of just one!!! If you didn't see what Cindy sent be sure to check out my other Happy Mail post! Between the two of them I feel like one lucky lady!!! 

My second handmade zippered bag made by Carla herself. This picture doesn't do the fabric justice. I love browns and this fabric has a little shimmer to it. Oh so pretty! And guess what was inside...

Looks like I should have picked a better background for my picture:(

A chocolate mint candy bar!!! Oh how I do like chocolate mint!!! When I was pregnant with my son (over 40 years ago) I craved chocolate peppermint sodas. 

A great assortment of buttons, lace and bling to use for cardmaking

And, Carla knows I like to make cards so look at all the lace, bling and other goodies I get to play with! These should be great for the Easter and Mother's Day cards I need to make.

Softlips tinted lip balm

A little something to make my lips kissable for my sweet hubby:)

Very pretty card ala Carla

Plus she made me this adorable card!

Thank you, Carla! You're the best! I love everything you sent:) 

I have "met" some of the nicest people via blogging and look forward to developing better friendships with these very special ladies.

I'm on a roll so I will be back a little later today with another post! Guess I'm trying to make up for not blogging much last week!
