vintage ball balls

Found these in my local Oxfam shop - baragin at 49p.

Love the quaint spelling of baubles by the shop assistant, have strung them with different coloured ribbon and put them on the tree.

dress making birthday card

It made a change to do a Birthday card this month, its a stand-up card made with a sheet of A5 white card. (am addicted to watching Creata with Carley at the mo!)

Background paper and paper flowers from Nitwit collection - cottage charm, topper was the tag I made earlier from Debbi Moore's Shabby Chic collection, along with the tape measure and small advert. Used black and bronze ink to shabby the edges.

again it looks pinker than it is.

Leaving card

I worked off a sketch out of a Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine to make this card, the original idea went out the window and I ended up doing something completely different, but I really love the colours and tones. I think the card made its self.

I didn't want to do the usual 'sorry you're leaving' as it sounds so final, so I opted for 'new beginnings' -  moving onto a new chapter of her life,

The only thing I don't like is my handwriting.
