I have made a couple of Cards.


This week Beth's Teacher gave birth to her first baby, a baby boy they have named Alex!! how exciting. She actually went into labour on Wednesday which is the day that Beth has her extra maths lesson from her husband, so we saved the tutoring fee this week!!! So in preparation I made a boy card, a girl card and an emergency either sex card!! I love this little baby grow stamp its so versatile!!

The above card is a bit of a cheat, I have made it using a 'cupcake' post it note!! Just before Christmas I spied these notes in Tesco's they came in a pack of two different designs for 99p. So I bought a pack and finally got around to using one. I stuck the post it note to some sparkly brown paper, I added the sentiment around the outside in white souffle pen. I then mounted it on green paper and then on the card. I added some 'stickles bling', which is more obvious in real life!!

This week I received a small package that I ordered from an Etsy seller in USA. I had been looking through and spotted some hand made silver and pearl rings, they are beautiful and so reasonable in price. Look Here! The lady was lovely to deal with and included an extra ring free of charge. They are made out of sterling silver wire wound around to make the ring. The stones are thread on to the wire and the wire ends are wrapped around to form a shank. I am so impressed with them, I think I may well have a go at making one, I have lots of beautiful beads!!
