Grateful for You

Hi everyone!

I hope you've had a good week!  Do you have any big plans for the weekend?  I want to get some of my fall decorations out this weekend.  And of course, spend some time stamping!  

My very talented sister is still on the mend this week, so no Friday card from her.  Hopefully she will be feeling well enough to return next week.  

I have a very cool story for you today...at least I think it's cool!  I've been selling some of my retired stamp sets through a group on Facebook.  This week, I posted a new batch of stamps - I have to make room for all the stamps I've purchased from this year's holiday mini!  It's always an agonizing decision for me to figure out which sets I can live without.  Anyhow, I digress.  Back to my story.

This week, I sold several sets to local ladies.  So, rather than mail their purchases, we've met and completed the transaction in person.  On Wednesday, I met a lovely lady, Julie, that bought one of my stamp sets.  I gave her the stamps, and she gave me an envelope:



After I got back to my desk (we met at my office), I opened the envelope and found this great card inside along with the payment:


What a nice surprise!  And what a pretty classic clean card!

Once I saw the card, I send a message to Julie asking if I could share it with you here.  She said yes.  So Julie, thank you!  What a really nice unexpected surprise.  You made my day!  

What about you?  Have you given a card to someone recently for no special reason?  

The DSP (Sweater Weather) for the envelope and the card base (Baked Brown Sugar) are retired.  The other cardstock colors are Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla.  Crumb Cake is also the color of the background stamp. 

The stamp set, For All Things (#135155), is from the current annual catalog.

What a nice surprise indeed. I love the card too. Unexpected kindness is the best. I'm feeling much better today and will hopefully have cards for you this week.
