I am so blessed!!

Well, talk about a happy mail day!! You could have knocked me over with a feather when I opened my mailbox yesterday & found a HUGE envelope from my good friend Dawn Burnworth ~ flowergal36 on SCS. We met on SCS a few months ago & became instant friends. My only regret is that we didn't start chatting sooner, because just as were getting to know each other, she moved from IL to NC for her husband's job. Aw, MAN!!!!! Had she stayed in IL, we could have met IRL!! NC is a little out of my driving range (not that I wouldn't LOVE to visit one day). But we email each other just about every day & she's become very important to me.

On to the goodies:

She sent me: a Martha Stewart snowflake border punch, a Magnolia stamp, a container of red & pink Primas, some bling, AND an *adorable* High Hopes card!!! Could you all hear the gasp I let out when I opened it? LOL!! Thank you sooooooo much, Dawn! This is all so incredible, but I'm most thankful for your friendship!!

Today's been a busy day so no stamping time for me. I went to school to help Michael's teacher, & I ended up instead subbing for an aide that had to go home sick. That's the third time that's happened, where I go to school thinking I'm going to help the teacher & I end up working, lol!! I don't mind at all, I usually end up working in the special needs room, where they definitely can't afford to lose an aide for a day. Some days I feel like I'm not much help but I think they just appreciate the extra hands. I have a feeling that's where I'm going to be tomorrow too ~~ the sickness seems to be running rampant in that wing of the school, & there are a few aides who haven't gotten it yet so I'm sure their turn is coming. LOL!

Have a great Tuesday!!

Awww aren't you sweet. You so deserve it. I am so glad I got that punch. It is hot around here. I have been a stalker of yours for years. (in a good way) So glad we have so much in common.
Hugs to you. Can't wait to see what you come up with.
