2/17 A RAK from My Friend Mary

One of the most wonderful aspects of becoming a Stampin'Up demonstrator are the demonstrator friends I have made. Mary Rindal is such a friend. She moved to MN last summer and through SCS found a friend who knew me and hooked us up. I invited Mary to attend my demonstrator meetings, and also to come to any of my events that she wanted to. Her son, Trace, often comes along and hangs out with my daughter, Kasey. She gave me an absolutely LOVELY Valentine's day card pictured above. Of course I LOVE it. Mary is an absolute PRO with using the hat pins from our Pretties Kit. She has even inspired me to add them onto a card or two!

T'hen, she says, and I have something else for you and Kasey that the two of you can enjoy together. And, OH, did we enjoy it!! I've taken lots of pictures so you can enjoy it, too!! Thank you so much, Mary!

She created a basket from a 12x12 sheet of paper, decorated with our Delicate Dots Designer Series Paper and filled it with all kinds of goodies for my daughter and I.

Kasey's special V-day card from Mary and Trace. Don't you just love that banner over the pink designer paper. And how does one cut cherry stems that perfectly?? AMAZING!!
This was a treat holder filled with yummy fruit snacks and a very cute post it note holder. My daughter was nice enough to share the snacks with her sisters and her mom, too!

Mary knows how much I love the new Jackpot designer series paper so she created a Game Day card for me. Totally AWESOME!
Then, I got a gorgeous hand-crafted journal and some chocolate nugget treats.
And, isn't this journal awesome?? I had to take a picture to show you how the pages flipped out for all kinds of fun scrapping and journaling.
What a joy. Thanks again so, so much Mary!
