Let the card making begin! The rest of my supplies from Two Peas and Stampin' Up! came today and I am ready to go :-) Here are some of the papers that I got to go with the vintage cream cardstock and kraft paper envelopes I will be using this year. Combined with the adorable tree stamp and my Papertrey Ink supplies, I think this year's card just might be my favorite one yet.

So besides just being thrilled about the arrival of my order, there was a special little perk that I was not expecting. When I ordered the papers I couldn't see what the print was on the text papers, but thought it would be really nice to use anyhow.
Today I open it up and look at it and guess what...the text is from Pride and Prejudice!! I know...I couldn't believe it either! Check it out for yourself...

See? It's right there: Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth, Mr. Bingley....
I would have been thrilled to get this under any circumstances, but below explains just why this is so such a treat to me right now...

Actual conversation heard in the m+m household last night:
me: "Hey hon, check out this page I am working on"

him:"Nice one. I am shocked that you used a page ripped out of a book and it's not from Pride and Prejudice"
me: "I thought of that, but this is the page that came with the embellishment pack
...and besides, I would feel like I was defacing the bible or something [insert giggle]"
(ponders just how much a page made from p&p would be amazing)
 him:"Well it looks great"
me:"Well thank you. Maybe I will try to find a copy that is already missing some pages and use that."

And now today this comes! Can you believe it? I can.
Life is serendipitous.
