More RAKs

Happy Monday morning Everyone! Time is spinning out of control here and I wish I could either turn back the clock or slow it down LOL! Right now, my personal feeling is that I need to take care of certain things first, and that is to express gratitude and give thanks to those who have blessed me with their friendship and bestowed gifts upon me for my birthday and for "just because." Until then, I don't feel comfortable keeping that aside and work on crafting. That being said, I would like to thank the following people who have enriched my life in so many wonderful ways by way of their friendship:

This cute birthday Anya card and golf towel is from my sweet and kolohe (rascal) GF Linda. When she laughs, I start to cry because her laughter is infectious! Those of you who know and hear Linda will know what I mean! I needed a new golf bag towel and voila! Linda seems to read my mind! I love this and will try not to get it too dirty! (Of course I'll wash it periodically!) I always look forward to getting together with Linda and her "other half," Kyoko. Thank you so much Linda!

This gift set is from my sweet BFF Denise. Look at all the ribbon, stickers, brads, dew drops and beads I get to play with! Denise has a beautiful house on the windward side of the island, Kaneohe, and from her deck you can see Kaneohe bay. She and her daughter Jamee love to entertain (?) and hosts gatherings at her home so we can craft, talk, eat, talk, eat, and maybe finish a project or two LOL! Denise has so many orders she's always working on them and can whip out 50 cards in no time! Be sure to stop by her site to see her wonderful creations. Thank you, Denise!

A dear friend, Linda Wright of Linanna Designs, all the way from the UK, has surprised me with this beautiful card and Forever Friends set of white embossed blank cards and envelopes, a pad of Christmas DPs, and two rubber stamps! I apologize for the bad picture. Linda and I live in different time 12 hours difference? So, when I'm ready for bed, Linda is getting up so I wish her a good day and she wishes me a good night! Please stop by Linda's blog to see her beautiful creations, and give her some love. Thank you very much Linda! I will soon start on my Christmas cards!

I will be back tomorrow to share a few more RAKs. Everyone out there is special to me and I always count my blessings for friendships made around the world! This truly is the new version of having "pen pals" across the nation! Have a wonderful evening/morning everyone, and thank you for stopping by.
