A great week

Whenever Friday creeps up, I'm always amazed at how fast the week went by. I found out yesterday that my colorful bird-on-a-hill scallop card received an Honorable Mention for Hero Arts' mail it challenge. I hope the card found its way to Judy in Alabama.

And I'm still celebrating my birthday as a few cards and gifts arrived this week. Just sharing a photo of a beautiful BROWN clutch that a sweet friend from Indonesia sent me. The batik print is so pretty and reminiscent of her country. Love the browns!


And another sweet (and sneaky) friend sent me this stuffed felt owl keychain. The embroidery work is really amazing and I dubbed her "Owlice" after her designer. Big Owl looks happy...



This year brought the most number of hand stamped birthday cards that I've ever received. It's all thanks to the Hero Arts Flickr group and the many friendships I've made. I am blessed.
