Valentine Box Swap

At Valentines I participated in a Heart shaped box swap. I got a partner in England. Tracey was so sweet, and the box is just lovely. It turned out that the post office under estimated how long it takes to ship a box . They told me 5-10 days, and it took a month. UGH.....However, the wait was well worth it, as you are about to see.
I received the most beautiful box....it truly took my breath away. She captured "me" perfectly.
The box was painted, and then lightly stamped with the most beautiful swirls...and the butterflies are just amazing.
Even the inside was finished.....so Beautiful!!
Tomorrow I will post pictures of all of the amazing goodies that Tracey put inside. Be sure to check out her lovely blog, and tell her Hi!!! Her blog is Magical-Kardz.....you will love it.
Have a lovely Sunday.

Oh how great! I wonder if because of all the snow it wasn't slowed a bit. I have been waiting over a month for 2 magazines, I finally got one and I'm still waiting! The box is beautiful and worth the wait!
Hugs, Lisa
