The Overwhelming Generosity of a Stamper

Wow! Did I ever get a package in the mail today!!! AND.....this package included RIVER ROCK paper, ink pad, ink refill AND ribbon, along with the 4 SAB sets. What did I do to deserve such a treat??? I really don't know, but Mommybird from SCS is the responsible person for MAKING MY DAY! She had read, here on my blog a week or so ago, my comment about how I didn't know what I would do if I ran out of my hoarded RIVER ROCK paper supply and my regret that I had never bought the ink pad. And.....just like SANTA CLAUS, she fulfilled my wish. Isn't that so awesome??!! When I get back from my upcoming trip (which begins at 4:30AM tomorrow I will certainly be sending her some surprises in thanks.

I am a true believer in Random Acts of Kindness, and Mommybird surely blessed me with a great bounty of kindness. Thanks so much, T.!

My second share for today is an altered notebook. I love this sentiment as if reflects how I feel about my fellow stampers. This is a Michael's $ notebook which I created a new cover design for. I used punches by Paper Shapers to create the flowers. This is what it says (just in case you can't read it....)....

In everyone's life
at some time
our inner fire goes out.

It is then burst into flames
by an encounter with
another human being.

We should all be thankful
for those people who
rekindle our inner spirit.

Actually, this could certainly also apply to Mommybird's generosity as well and to any struggle we face in life.

May you have many people in your life who rekindle your spirit. I am so lucky to have many friends who do this for me.
