Happy Valentine's Day with some Happy Mail!!

Happy Tuesday and Happy Valentine's Day!!

You would think since I've been making so many Valentine's Day cards and projects that I would actually have one to share, right?  Wrong!  But don't fret because I do have something that I just received in the mail and it is definitely perfect to share on this Valentine's day.

It's from my Feb secret sister, Kim Yu.  She posted this beautiful card on her blog the other day and I fell in love with it.  Let's face it I love all of her creations.  She mentioned that it was for her secret sister and I left a message saying that her SS would love it. I was RIGHT! (lol)  She is amazingly talented and so crafty.  She is just one of a group of ladies I love to visit and see what she's been up to.  I take a lot of inspiration from her.  And on top of that, she is super sweet in person!

Here are several pictures of the happy mail I received from her.  (Be advised, there's quite a few pictures, but well worth the scrolling through.  :)

Oooo!!!  What is it?!

O my!!  Yay!! A custom made purse by Kim!  So pretty!!

It's gorgeous!! And totally made out of paper!!

Take a look!  Isn't this the prettiest card ever?
And there you have it, my pretty amazing secret sister Valentine swap showcase that I wanted to share with all of you custom/handmade from the very talented and amazing Kim Yu.  Did you know she has her own Etsy store and sells all her divine handmade goodies?  Yes, check it out here.  I want to send a big Thank you to Kim Yu for the gorgeous RAK and card.  Your talent is amazing sista!  Would you like to participate in these secret sister swaps?  Well all you have to do is sign up with Kris HERE.  It's so fun to receive but also lovely to give and you get to meet so many new friends and reconnect with old ones.

Alrighty gotta get myself in gear for work.  I hope you all have a lovely Valentine's day.  Be back here tomorrow when I share my Flutterby Wednesday post.  It's a very new challenge and one I'm sure a lot of you will be excited about.  Let's just say it's all about wings... lol..   Have a good one and Mahalo for stopping by!!
