Frenchie Friendliness

I was treated to such a nice surprise recently.  A package from my friend Esther in France!  For those of you who don't know Esther let me tell you a little bit about her.  To start, she's amazing in every craft she tries!  Yes, I really mean this.  She really has incredible talent that shines through in everything she touches.  If you don't believe me just take a look at her blog Mes illusions baroques.  Secondly, her sincerity will really surprise you.  Her heart is huge and she is always giving encouragement to others and even the occasional gift. ;)  And last but not least, not only is she beautiful inside, she is stunning on the outside as well.  I've seen pictures of her with her jewelry and it definitely shouts French beauty. 

Here is the lovely gift that she created.

What wonderful sparkle these earrings have and I love blue!  How did she know?  My daughter was amazed by the gift just as I was and suggested using the card Esther created as a book mark so I can think of her every time I use it.  What a wonderful idea!  The card is beautiful with its vintage angel having red glitter on her lips and crown.  So sweet!

Thanks so much, Esther!  I'm so happy to have friends like you and all my other blogging buddies!
