What a surprise

Thank you Lisa

Lisa was my swap partner for the "Little House swap" over at  four happy Violets .
We are using the tutorial found at Retro Mamas  to make a house and swap.

Mine arrived this morning and I love it.  :)

What I didn't know though, was that Lisa was also my secret swap partner for the Autumn Swap that Cheryll is hosting.  Cheryll hosts great swaps if you are ever interested in joining in on the fun.  

As it happens, Lisa's Blog  My Little Creative Wonderland is one that I read all the time and last week she posted a picture of her swap gift she had made.  I loved it and even left Lisa a message Blogger

Oh she is absolutely gorgeous ... I could see her keeping me company!
 Someone will be over the moon to have her" 

Well guess what.......It was MINE ... all Mine 
and I L O V E  it ... whoops her and Yes I am over the moon.

Meet Maple

We have been busy already with a little photo shoot :o)

Lily and I might have already had a little "dispute" as to who she belong to ...... I won!

She also came with some yummy mint leaves (I'm hiding these from the kids) and two lovely FQ's

and the perfect place for Maple.
I get to see her smiling face all the time.

You can rest assured Lisa, Miss Lily can not reach her here :)

Thank you again Lisa, I love all my swap items.

hugs, Sharon xx
