Rudolph Day and My happy Mail

Hi everyone, I hope you're all having a great weekend and looking forward to the extra day Bank Holiday if you're lucky enough to be having one. Yesterday I receieved some 'Happy Mail' from the lovely Mia in Greece.... I was very lucky to win the Name Day candy she had on her blog Craftartista and she sent me a parcel full to overflowing of so many wonderful goodies so I set to last night and made a card using some of the stamps and ribbon.

I shall head over to the August Rudolph Days challenge with this

I thought you might like to see the parcel I received

... and to show you how many wonderful goodies she managed to pack in there I've made a photo collage. There is so much - ribbons, lace, buttons, stamps and lots more, as well as her own crochet work, some shells she had collected from the beach and last but not least a packet of greek coffee which is bubbling on the stove as I type. Thank you so much Mia for all these fabulous goodies.

Mia is new to Blogland so it would be lovely if you could pay her a visit and say Hi to her and also see the crafts she makes.

Thanks for popping by today and taking the time to leave a comment . I'm just off now to do a spot of tidying up in the garden while the sun is shining, so I'll be round to visit you later.
