RAK Showcase - Act 1

Hello everyone!
I'm stopping back by today to share some gorgeous RAK's (random acts of kindness) I've received recently from fellow demos. I am so fortunate to have truly wonderful friends through Stampin' Up! and from time to time, they send me some beautiful artwork just because - isn't that wonderful? I love what my bff Tiffany and I call "happy mail" days. That's when you open the mailbox and get something that makes you happy just because the other person wanted to make you smile.

I haven't shared many RAK's here lately and I've got quite a few built up to show you so I'm gonna start with a few today and a few more tomorrow. I'll share some more with you next week too, ok? With only 13 days left before I leave for convention, I have an overwhelming amount of work to do to get ready so this is the perfect time to do my RAK Showcases!

The projects today all were included in swap packages to me over the past two weeks from participants in my private GoDivas swap. I'll be posting some of their actual swaps later on for you to drool over. These ladies are all handpicked by me because they are amazing stampers - all with varying styles and strengths. Their combined talent make each swap round something not to be missed and gives each of us fabulous inspiration!

The first piece is a gift wallet by my great friend Patti Chesky. Look at that gorgeous combination of color and elements!

Patti had also sent me this fabric flower pin in May and I'd not taken the opportunity to show it to you! It is stunning in person and believe it or not, all made with the Big Shot!

And just look at this adorable beach basket and the yummy chocolate treat that was tucked inside! This is from my friend Gretchen Barron and is just stinkin' adorable!

Gretchen also sent along this card she made using SU's digital paper crafting software - My Digital Studio. It is so obviously NOT just for scrapbooking! This card is gorgegous!

And just who doesn't love a little bitty card and a gift of ribbon?!
My buddy Daryl Micciche knows just how to make me squeal with delight, which is what I did when I opened her swap package and found this gift!
A lot of my swappers send me chocolate, but since it was so hot, Daryl elected to send ribbon instead - which has the added benefit of no calories! Yeah!
I just love the little card she made for it with the new Artistic Impressions stamp set - so adorable! Daryl doesn't have a blog or I'd give you the link there.

So, there you go, I've had a chance to show off some of my talented friends artwork and tell everyone just how special they are to me! Love them bunches!
Check back in tomorrow for RAK Showcase Act 2!
Stamped blessings,
