Feeling So Special...

Don't you just LOVE getting Happy Mail? I do! I received some fabulous goodies in the mail in recent weeks and just have to share! I nearly fell off my seat when I found these treasures in my mail!!! This beautiful birthday card and box were lovingly created and sent from my dear friend Gene...
Gene used kime komi or oshie style techniques to put together this exquisite washi quilted heart for the front of this very special birthday greeting. Gene enjoys creating Asian themed cards and projects the most....and I can see why...she does such beautiful work! I just love how she used the pretty sakura blossom stickers to accent the front and inside of this card....
Also included was this very pretty box. Untie the bow and the box opens up like a book.  Inside are three little compartments, filled with adorable little glittered embellishments... so clever!
Then from yet another very special friend, Patti from Creations by Patti...
...this AMAZING decorated album!  This is the front of the box which holds the album. The sentiment on the front is behind a window/frame which can be replaced with a photo....
Inside the box, a mini album which slides out..
Here's the front of the album inside, covered with more of that beautiful washi paper. Everything is so beautifully finished and edged in gold.
True to Patti's unique style, everything is about attention to detail. These beautiful charms hang from the spine of the album. And check out the beautiful chrysanthemum embossing on the inside cover of the album. Definitely a keepsake that will be treasured forever!
Big hugz and mahalos(thanks) to Gene and Patti for making me feel so special! You gals are just amazing, and I am truly blessed to have you in my life as friends!!!!
And last, but certainly not least, I wanted to share this photo of this little suprise from my dh that was delivered to me on my birthday at work. It looks like my little Latte came to visit! LOL, this has got to be the absolutely cutest & sweetest floral arrangement I've ever received! These flowers brightened my day and brought a smile to my heart at work everyday for nearly two weeks!
