I won a Blog Candy and got a present from my Secret Pal!

Good morning and happy Monday to all my friends out in blogland!  I wanted to share with you what I got over the last two weeks in the mail.  My wonderful Secret Pal sent me another letter and a beautiful card.  It's embossed with leaves that are so pretty.  I wish I could ask her what she used.  I love it.  Also I've never seen an envelope turned into a clever!  I know she checks my blog so I figure I can anser her letters here.  Scrolling through our Secret Pal forum has gotten to be quite a chore! LOL  There's so many ladies chatting with each other and keeping up that it just goes on and on and on and on, well you get the picture.

So here's to my pal:
It's so nice to hear that you've been with your man for 14 years.   This summer will 20 for my husband and me. That's just so rare these days it makes my heart happy to hear it.  Lucky you to have 3 girls and grandchildren!  I have two boys but thankfully no grandkids yet.  Not that I wouldn't love to have them, but my boys are just starting out their lives and I want them to wait - lol. It's funny you talk about your best friend of 27 years because I have one too.  We've known each other 22 years.  Those friendships are hard to find and hold onto once you are lucky enough to find them.  I'm blessed to have my Jocie in my life.  She has been my rock when everything else was crashing down.  For all the things in my life that are challenging me right now I definitely have more that are blessing me.  God is so great!  I'm blessed to have been given such a great secret pal too.  One day I'll know who you are until then I'm saving up my letters and painting a picture of you in my mind!  Until next time, Happy Thanksgiving my secret pal!

I also won a Blog Candy from Susan Dupre.  The candy was for a package of Graphics 45 paper.  I have never used Graphics 45 so I was VERY excited to get it.  But let me tell you, I got this in the mail.  It was chuck full of Graphics 45, Pepples, and Flirt products.  All of which I've never used.  So I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to Susan for such a lovely gift.  Here's pictures of what all she sent me!

Thanks for stopping by I hope to have some cards uploaded later today!
