Oh mah goodness!  You peoples are not going to believe what I received in my mail today!  Sindy has just provided me with inspiration for my next 200 ATC's!  This will be seriously picture intense...my apologies to those of you on dial-up!  Grin

I received in a manilla envelope.  My eyes about bugged out of my head when I first saw this!  I sent mine in a regular business envelope and I was worried that I had done wrong but Ms. Sindy...oh she is a creative one!  She had placed her business envelope inside with a couple of other pieces that were added as extra gifts.

First have a look at the outside of this envelope!  She stamped it!  I only wished I had such a stamp collection.  But who needs one now!



So here is what I found inside of the big envelope.  Sindy had made me a couple of cd's of some digi stuffs.   1) Da Vinci Treasury and 2) Alphabets & Ornaments.  You can see that the ephemera was all tucked tightly into the business envelope.  There was a half of a cereal box to cut cards from , and a wonderful card inside with a personal note.   You can see the card that she made for me here but I'll post a better photo at the end.



So I immediately started to spread everything out on my floor and it's a good thing that I was already on the floor!  My husband was watching me and saying, "oh no oh no oh no no no"  hee hee my living room has been covered in paper snippets and ATC things since before Christmas...



Can you believe that she got all of this stuff inside of that white envelope?!  There are beautiful papers and vellum with so many different pictures and antiques book pages in French and I think Italian!  There's stickers and stars and little eyelets shaped like stars and 3d embellishments and what looks like asian money!  Antique receipts and tickets oh my!

So here are close ups of some of the goodies.







And then I found this beautiful card.  It's titled Serenity.  Sorry, it's just a little blurry..my hands must have been shaking.  Shocked



Oh man, Sindy!  You've just completely blown me away.  I feel like I can stop collecting now.  There are things that I've never used and can't wait to start playing with this!  I can't begin to thank you enough for all that you've done.  Really!  I'd wet slop smooch you if I could get my hands on you!  Thanks a million hun!

I am TOTALLY salivating over that Ephemera loot.  I REALLY wanted to play with you guys, but have a TON of ATC 'trash' as it is...and dont' know when I'll ever use it up, so I could not ask for more (and remain happily married, anyways!!!)
Great stuff Sindy!
