something very special......

To say how thrilled I was this morning when my postman arrived is such an understatement. A white, square envelope lay on the floor of our porch, when I opened it up, the surprise I got was overwhelming. I truly never expected to receive what I did. Kerry sent me the most gorgeous wallet card, with her very own 'doodled' character drawn on the front. She sent it by way of saying thank you for the 'bling' challenge candy she won. I have loved seeing Kerrys cards displayed on the do-crafts forum and even more since she started blogging, but to actually receive one from her is something so very special and precious to me, for which I am truly grateful.

This is no ordinary card, the reason I find it so very special is because Kerry also sent me a selection of her very own ("KerryJo originals") doodles, one of my favourites being the ballerina, seeing it in real life is amazing, thank you so very, very much Kerry. I feel so priviledged to have been given these images, not to mention extremely ecstatic, excited, chuffed to bits, over the moon......

I know you can't really see Kerrys' drawings that well, the reason being is that they are copyright to Kerry, so for safety reasons I left them in the wallet, as I would hate for anything untoward to happen if I photographed them individually. I now know how Julie felt when she made that fabby 'skater boy' card. I'm still getting used to looking at these 'doodles', whether I will have the courage to make a card as yet, that feels so very daunting at the mo. To be honest I am still in a state of surprise. This has been such a special, precious treat and really has brightened our day. Sending you loads of love 'n' hugs and special thanks Kerry.
