Sophie's Birthday & A Surprise in the Mail

In 3 weeks' time, a group of Michigan Splitcoast Stampers are meeting in Bay City ... as part of the preparation, we have all been assigned 'secret sisters' to treat with cards and gifts before the event. My secret sister isn't a secret!!! We decided we'd like to know who we're receiving things from so I found out that my Big SS is Vicki aka CraftCrazy98 on SCS. She's really been treating me with some fab stuff ... but last night I went to the mailbox and got this BEAUTIFUL card from her ~ it's my fave so far. She knows I love pink and this is just perfect ... don't you agree? She used some lovely embossing folders and a set from Papertrey Ink to monogram with. Thanks Vicki, this is FANTASTIC.

And after several days of not stamping, I made a card today! I just received a new set from Stamp Tapestry ... soooo pretty. I needed to make a card for my niece, Sophie, who is 17 on the 19th. I wanted to get it in the mail next week because it takes over a week sometimes to reach the UK. Happy Birthday Sophie! Love you!
