WOYWW #255 - gift from South Africa!

I am participating in Julie's "What's on your workdesk Wednesday" with a shot of a gift from my friend Petra in South Africa!  Stop by Julie's blog to join in WOYWW fun! 

So let's check out what's on my desk today.

I met Petra Swart at when we visited one another's gallery and before we knew it we were emailing regularly.  Petra asked me if I could send her something that she couldn't get in South Africa and I was happy to do it, in return she sent me this incredible goodie box.  Check out the cool corrugated box decorated with beautiful layered flags.  (I love banners and tags!)  I have opened the tape and  already used some plus there is something missing in this photo and that's the chocolate bar that we couldn't wait to eat!  :)  The Cappuccino is quite yummy too!

I think it's so fun to see the postage from another country so I included that in this photo as well as the fun stamping Petra added to the packaging!

Peeping just at the right hand corner is a sneaky little peek at the card I just finished for PPRS and will show up on my blog next Monday!

I was absolutely THRILLED to receive one of Petra's gorgeous cards.  I love her clean layers and look, more fabulous flags and tags!!!!  

Please head over to Petra's Blog to see more of her gorgeous creations!  

Thanks For Looking!
