Surprises From The Queen of Generosity...

Francie from The Scented Cottage swapped ATCs with me for the December swap. Seems my assigned partner and I never connected and Francie was generous enough to share with me, as well as a few other swappers.
The Blissfull ATC group's December theme was "angels". I was the fortunate recipient of one of Francie's creations. She even painted the delightful roses so that they would stand off the card! Then, she added just the right amount of sparkle to make a girl smile.

Her work is always so incredible and I'm honored to have this angel artist trading card to remind me of my friend in Georgia.
You might remember when I shared this photo of my angel card. This was sent to Francie, along with a few little goodies of my own.

Francie always reminds me that I'm a rank amateur in the generosity department! Look at all the scrumptious gifts she included with the ATC!!!
My atc arrived in a card with a frame front, so that I have a way to display it. But then, look what else she sent! There were lavender buds and spray; beautiful blank notecards, and a set of Bucilla playing cards featuring gorgeous cross stitch designs. But then, OH MY GOODNESS, look at this!!!
Isn't this a beautiful spatula? Uh, huh...more acorns for this lucky girl! Francie, my dear friend. You've done it again! The Queen of Generosity strikes again, and I'm so grateful for the thoughtful gifts you sent to me. I love everything!!!

I have been on the receiving end of Francie's generosity too! Amoung other things she sent me the most delightful soap with oatmeal in it. The scent is wonderful. It lasts a long time too. I received it last fall and I am still using it. My other hand soap would not remove the makeup from my hands after I apply it. This soap cleans it right off my hands.

Donna, what beautiful gifts. I always love seeing something in silver that is adored with acorns. My sister gave me a piece for my birthday this year that I plan to share for the next silver Sunday. Love the idea of the playing cards with cross stitch patterns. Clever. ~ Sarah
