Life and May Basket

It has been a busy last 2 months.  That seems to be an understatement!!!!
Lots of stress but then along comes a friend who makes my day, week and month!!!!

I belong to a couple online boards.  It is online but many of us have met IRL, some several times.  We try to get as many as possible together once a year.  I am also very lucky that one of the board members live right here in my city and two others live close to my daughters or on the way.

Well, we exchanged May Baskets this year and did the opening online together.  Suzy, whom I got to hang with for a whole day a couple months ago while on the East Coast was my May Basket Buddy.  It was so fun to shop and create for her!!!  But......what she sent me was so exciting and the best gifts ever.   Even with my busy days I am still finding time to create and have all ready started to use many of the things. 

Been wanting this Cricut cart mainly for the font on it.   It is such a cute font!!!!

Also another Cricut Cart and several sets of Close to My Heart Stamps~~ I love to journal and a couple of these are date stamps.  I am so thrilled to get them.  Another adorable one has boarders and  looks like someone stitched it.  Suzy, is a CTMH consultant and was so generous with her product
More wonderful items and kits.  The last picture shows a Little Yellow Bicycle album and a pad of papers with the cute edges all ready to punch out and apply to the acyrlic and chipboard pages.  Love that the edge is there and ready for me to add personal touches.   Thanks Suzy, you have made my day!!!!!
