Its Arrived!!

Waited in for only just half of a day for my package to arrive, kept checking out the window when I thought I heard a van on the road outside all morning :-)  And then there was a ring at the doorbell and there it was:

and then when I opened it, this is what was inside:

Here it is spread out on the floor (stitching will have to take a back seat for a little while)

and then I received a parcel in the normal post and found this inside:

A card and gifts from my Stampin' Up! mummy, Sarah-Jane.  A lovely surprise to round off an exciting morning waiting :-)

Why is waiting so hard to do?

Got notification this morning that my starter pack has been dispatched, so I have got the UPS tracking page open and am trying hard to not refresh the page every five minutes!  Apparently it left Brussels at 9.30 this morning, so I guess it could be anywhere between there and here right now.

While I am waiting, I thought I would post photos of a card I made with Sarah-Jane a while back using a stamp set that I have included in my starter pack.  The stamp set is called Aviary and I love it :-)

I'm going to have so much fun when my kit arrives in the next couple of days, I can hardly wait :-)
