Gorgeous Treasured Gifts

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog today. As promised here are the beautiful gifts I received from my mum, Rita, of RMG Creations, as well as my kind crafty blog friends. The box and hat contained lovely handmade truffles and chocolates, which were quickly consumed by my family and I.


 Isn't the lantern just stunning with so much detail in the top piece.


 This box is so delightful and beautifully decorated...... the truffles were divine


 This is the card made by my mum, using the vintage Santa from Astrid's site, Astrid's Artistic Efforts.


Below is the gorgeous card I received from my  dear crafty friend, Redanne of Bollyanne blogspot and this stunning tag is a swap from  my dear crafty friend, Anita Houston, The Artful Maven Haven.


For many years I have loved Monkey and got a huge surprise to find him in my stocking.  He was hand knitted by  my crafty mum, who had to hide him each time I visited. Isn't he just divine x


The hat below was filled with chocolates and  I was thrilled for mum to be chosen in the Top 3 at Artful Times and Fashionable Stamping Challenge with this stunning project.



More gorgeous makes from mum and I just love the candle and  vintage bag.

The card below was made by my crafty sister, Carolyn.



THank You for visiting and I look forward to viewing all your crafty makes in 2013.

    This is such a special post not only because of the stunning creations (and they are stunning to say the very least) but it is the love between you and your Mum and the fact you share the same passion in life, that is so special.
    What amazing creations from family and friends and Monkey (dare I say that he might be the star of the show - keep that to yourself, we don't want it going to his head!)
    Wishes

  16. Still blown away that Rita is your mother! I loved all these makes of hers and had no idea she was making them for you! That hat rocks, and the monkey is a wow!!! I enjoyed swapping with you! Lets do it again for Valentines! I need to put up all my treats from Christmas too, but my blogging life has been lazy. Hard to get back in the swing of things!
