A Fab Parcel

Well. I've not really done much crafting since my last post, but I did get a fantastic crafty parcel this week. As soon as I saw the felt ric-rac over on Sarah's Paper-and-String Blog I knew I had to place an order and here it is:

and it arrived in a really cute paper bag:

I can also now share one of my recent cards; Mr Crafty Blogger's Valentine's card. He reads my blog so I can only show it now he has received it:

Heart wrapping paper from Paperchase
Mini bulldog clip from Paperchase
Felt letters cut using Cuttlebug red tag sale
Pen stitching
Finally I just wanted to share the lovely Valentine's card and present I received from Mr Crafty Blogger:

The book is book six of Wainright's 'A Pictoral Guide to the Lakeland Fells'. I had mentioned that I would like to do some of the Wainright walks this summer so he bought me the book. Proof apparently (according to himself) that men do listen.

Have a good weekend,
