Default 2013 Flower City Gathering Secret Sister Thread

Hello ladies - Here's the spot to thank your secret sister for cards, gifts, etc. Just a reminder, the minimum secret sister requirements are as follows:

-a card on her birthday
-one card for each season (winter, spring, summer, fall)
-a papercrafted gift with a $5 value at the reveal at next years gathering

We want to keep it simple, so please feel free to do as much as you want, but above would be the minimum.

Lauri

just to clarify to my secret sister, we are snow birds, so the GA address is from the end of Nov to the middle of May, but our mail is forwarded so don't worry if you forget.
Thanks again for a great day yesterday Lauri.

Thanks to my secret sister for the four beautiful fall and Halloween cards you've sent - absolutely love them!!!!! (sorry it took so long for me to thank you). They've been great pick-me-ups since the recent death of my dad (Oct. 12th) and the trying experience of taking care of my mom who has severe short-term memory loss. I appreciate your bounty and thoughtfulness!!

Thank you Secret Sister for the delightful CAS card tha I received yesterday. I simply love the 'pop' of red glitter paper behind the 'Just Because' sentiment. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you have a happy and healthy New Year.

Double thanks to my awesome secret sis! What an adorable birthday card, and I won double dollars on the lotto ticket! Lucky me! Oh and, I received your adorable thanksgiving card on Dec 23rd, Ali apologize for the late thank you on that one. There is a reason why they call it snail mail...lol. Thanks sweetie, you are the bestest!

A great big thank you to my wonderful secret sister for my pretty Christmas card and my wonderful Christmas goodies!! I loved the Santa tin filled with my favorite candies (truffles!!) and my beautiful Christmas tree ornament with the bell. It held a special place on my Christmas tree! I apologize for being so late in thanking you for my wonderful surprise. My computer was out of commission for a very long time. You were my Christmas angel!

Thanks to my Secret Sister for the lovely Valentines Day card. Beautiful pastel green colored embossed background with matching striped banner, heart shaped doily and matching heart with tiny little hearts inside. Reminds me of 'spring'! How lovely to get a Valentines card in non traditional colors. Love it!! Thanks, Sis.

Thank you to my secret sister for the lovely Valentine's Day card. What a clever idea to use the strips of paper the hearts were punched from to compliment the hearts!

Came home to a gorgeous valentine from my SS today! It has the prettiest patterned paper AND embossing AND a stitched ribbon that is the perfect touch AND a glittery heart that I absolutely love!

I received a very nice spring card in the mail on Thursday from my Secret Sister, thank you. Next time though, maybe you could put a little "spring weather" in the card too. . Have a great week.

Thanks to my secret sister for the super cute beach scene card and lotto ticket. Unfortunately I didn't win, so no hammock in the palm trees for us! Maybe next time!
