Twice Blessed With Kindness

This week I was twice blessed with kindnesses by my dear sister Maria. 
First she surprised me with this lovely card.

We both love birds ♥ and flowers♥

She followed the Seven Flowers Pop Up Card tutorial if you want to give it a try.

And she also gave me a new Pandora Charm for my bracelet.

Happy Little Bird is her name.
And it was "Just Because".

Then today she surprised me again by spreading some joy about my blog
on her beautiful blog Calm Energy
Please stop over to visit Maria.


Today I am shining brighter having received her beautiful kindnesses.
Tomorrow I will surely pass it on.

The heart of the giver makes the gift dear and precious.

Wishing you a beautiful day!

I think these are treasury gifts from the heart. The little charm is beautiful, you will think (a bit more) of sweet Maria every time you look at your bracelet. I have a troll bead bracelet, each bead has it's one story.
Much love for this Mother's Day weekend, sweet Doreen. Have a wonderful Sunday! xxxx

Oh, a silver birdie! Perfect! I love birds, too. I am moving into a new classroom next year and I am filling it with birds. I hope the eleven year old darlings don't mind!
