Cupid is in da' house...LOL!
So I joined a cupid swap with some of my fellow demos a few weeks back. We have a little group we call Swappers Anonymous...we formed it last year before the Stampin' Up! convention when many of us signed up for probably way more swaps than we should have and we were all kind of stessing at the same time. I have to say that I have so enjoyed being a part of this amazing group of ladies who I'm proud to call my friends! This cupid swap runs three days, today, Friday and Saturday. We had to send our Cupid a small gift for each day for them to unwrap. On Friday, along with the gift we put in a card or a tag that identifies you as their Cupid. It's all so much fun and yesterday when my boxed arrived I was so excited! Luckily Ron was here so he scooped it up and took off the return address label so I wouldn't have a clue as to who has me! Anyway, back to the post...I got to open my first gift today and it's amazing. See for yourself...my cupid gift was wrapped in this bag that is covered with the Stampin' Up! designer series paper, Bella Bleu. Inside amoungst the crinkle paper.. was the little bag on the left which is also made from Bella Bleu paper and it is filled with some of the Stampin' Up! Pretties flowers and pearls! Next is the little scalloped book that is stamped with the Rooster from the hostess set, Rustic Rooster. Inside the pages are covered with more of the Bella Bleu paper and the pages have the Corinthians verse (Love is patient, Love is kind) printed on them! Last but not least, is a tin covered in Bella Bleu that once held Build a Brads but now holds yummy Hershey's Nuggets. The nuggets are wrapped in coordinating paper and tied up with a Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon. It's just a stunning set! THANK YOU so much to my wonderful cupid! I can't wait until Saturday when her identity is revealed so I can truly thank her! I realized today as I was getting ready to post this that I neglected to take a picture of my first day gift that I sent my cupid. I do have pictures of days 2 and 3 and will post them on Saturday and Sunday after my cupid has opened her gifts and knows who I am. I will also be back later today to post a card I made with the new Thoughts and Prayers set. Have a Terrific Thursday everyone!
