Hello Everyone - another weekend over, and almost the end of the month! I have tomorrow off work and I'm going shopping before a hospital appointment.
Eleri has been to another friend's birthday party today. This is the set I made for her friend - the card, a corner bookmark (which I put in a Felicity Wishes cookbook), and a felt flower brooch. I was really pleased with the finished set.
The image I've used is a digi from Bugaboo Stamps, the papers are from the Kate Knight stack again (as per card in my previous post). I made the ribbon flower myself, using two different colours of organza ribbon. The sentiment is from a pack I had from Lakeland a couple of years ago (I keep forgetting I've got them!). I made the felt brooch using a Papermania template, and did a blanket stitch around the edge - I love the way this turned out, but wish I'd done some stitching in the middle.
I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - the sketch I followed for the card
CES Challenge - Bold and bright
Fab n Funky Challenge - Delight in your digi
Paperplay Challenge - Layer it up
2 Sisters Challenge - Girls just wanna have fun
Well, that's it from me - must go and plan my daughter's own birthday party. We have decided to have a small party at home, and invite just 5 of her friends from school. Can't afford a big party, cos my son's birthday is three days after Eleri's and we don't feel we can spend more on one than on the other. Andrew just wants to have a few friends round to play, but not on the same day as Eleri's party! Think that'll be a stressful weekend for me LOL!
Bye for now, and thanks for dropping by!
Love, Andrea xx
