She sent gorgeous chocolate cardstock, some button brads, already threaded! I know right, awesome! She sent these beautiful flower images already painted (I wish you could see the shimmer on these flowers, they must be painted with perfect pearls) oh and they were cut out! She even included that cute fall ribbon and a little extra special gift for me (you'll see a card with that a bit later!

Sincere Thanks!

My husbands cousin sent this beautiful bracelet. which she made, in support of Lung Cancer. My husband mother was recently diagnosed with Small Cell Lung Cancer. She is doing so well, we are all so proud of her! We can't wait to get down for Christmas Holidays!

What a wonderful thing for Crystal to do, she made 11 of these bracelets, one for all my MIL's sisters and friends!
So I had to send a little thank you card to Crystal!
