OMG, my halloween swap came! (More Added)

OMG, there's more!

These little gifts were all wrapped up! Black Brads, and this stamp from stampendous that I have wanted FOREVER!
This actually made me cry. Seriously, it did.

OMG, my swap came...in 2 packages! Connie spent an INSANE amount of money on shipping-just crazy!
First, the card. Connie says she is not good at making cards. Really, she said that! What a liar! This card is FAB! It's a pocket card with great Halloween paper and ribbon and lots of layers! LOVE it!


I emptied the big box contents. Emma is helping me. See all the individual WRAPPED items? How cool is that? I am afraid that I did not put this kind of effort in wrapping Connie's gifts, I'm sad to say.


Emma decided it was time to unwrap the gifts.


Look at the 27 pounds of chocolate! Holy cow! Oh and some candy corn thrown in for good measure! A balanced diet and all that! There is a spider-web bowl with more chocolate in it.
OK, the altered frame is so cute! And Connie, did you cross-stitch that towel? It is gorgeous! I had mentioned in a previous post how much I like the Herbanella line, so Connie got me ALL of it! The paper, the stickers, the die cuts, the rub-ons...WOW!


I am OVERWHELMED with this Halloween swap! And embarrassed, because I did not send nearly enough chocolate! But, connie, I sincerely hope you enjoy your package, it was made with love, even if it wasn't wrapped up the same way! LOL!
A million Thank-You's, Connie!

Connie is a master wrapper, I've gotten a few beautiful boxes myself before.
Don't get a tummy ache.

Michelle,
You are VERY welcome. I had a blast shopping and wrapping your gifts. Yes, I did make the towel and had it in my craft stash. I wanted to make you a cross stitch Halloween towel but time got away from me and I went to the stash. I am very glad that you like the swap and don't forget to unwrap the packages inside the web basket.
Have fun munching on candy and crafting!
Connie
