Spring Swap and a R.A.K.

HeLLo ☺
My SBS4 group (Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers) recently did a Spring Swap and now that my sis got her goodies, I can share this with you! I decorated a tin can with this bright springy paper from DCWV. The dark coral paper has a design in it, but hard to see that here. I decorated 3 Magnolias and pop-dotted them in between the letters of her name, "JANE" --hi Jane!! I didn't take a picture of the goodies inside, but I filled it with mini brads, glue dots, buttons, white gel pen, her favorite candy, and then I also sent her a card and a bunch of stamped images of animals, as those are some of her favorite images to use (or at least I hope I got that right?) LOL.

Next I want to share a card... actually it's a stamped folder filled with Stamping Bellas that I received a couple days ago from my friend Helen of Stampin with Helen! Thanks so much Helen!! You are the best. I don't own any Bellas, but they are sure cute and I'll definately enjoy using them!! Love the glitter on your flower, and your dp is really cute too! Thanks so much for everything Helen!!

Random tidbit for today:
Did you know that jelly is made from fruit juice, but jam is made from pureed fruit?
