RAKs - Candy Treats Without Calories!!!

If I told you how excited I get when I have received a card in the mail, you would probably say I need to see someone! Spaz And that may be true! Especially since I received 3 within the last week and here they are in the order I received them.

Jackie Kalchert is the artist of this card. Isn't it a beauty? I love every inch. She has used a Technique Junkie technique I think is called Vada's Gesso Resist. It is lovely as you can see. Thank you so much Jackie for the card and for your thoughtful words.

Speaking of excited and surprises. This card was sent by a wonderful person I met at the Stamp Convention I attended in Kissimmee, FL. She was so friendly, a real stamp artist, and she knew exactly how to shop a convention. If you ever meet her at one, follow her. She can show you great buys and save you a lot of money on really good 'stuff'. Thank you Donna. This was so unexpected. Like a "blast for the past". Hope to see you again sometime, sooner than later. I love your very spooooooooky Halloween card and it really brightened my day.

This card is from a dear friend living in a town near me. Her name is Connie Thorson and she teaches classes at a stamp store in Mooresville, NC, called Stamper's Alley. She, her friend Judy Kleinrock, and I met for lunch once. Connie, I hope you had a wonderful Halloween and thank for this lovely card. By the way, that candy corn is a cute 3D embellishment too~!
