Hello Everyone - I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Eleri has recovered very well from her hospital experience - it seems not to have affected her at all, thank goodness! She still hasn't actually admitted putting the bead in her ear, but she says she's not going to put anything else in her ear, up her nose or in her mouth LOL!
Now to my reason for posting today - My friend's daughter is 18 today, so I can show you the card and gift I made for her. I am just amazed at how quickly babies grow into adults in what seems the blink of an eye!
I've used Retro Melody from Pollycraft again, as she reminds me of Robyn who the card was for. The papers are all from a Kay and Co stack which I've had for ages and still got so much of - used the papers to paper piece her dress too. I bought a Do Crafts alphabet die last week, and used that to make the word 'eighteen' instead of adding a sentiment. I did struggle to die cut it in my Cuttlebug - wouldn't go through with the C plate, and was too thin with the two B plates, so used the embossing mat and some shims and then it worked (although I was a bit of a burk and had the embossing mat on the top at one point and that got caught in the rollers - oopsie, but no damage thankfully LOL!)
I've followed Sketch n Stash sketch number 57 - their current challenge is to use any sketch from their catalogue.
I decorated the inside, so I can enter the Truly Scrumptious Challenge this week.
I'll also enter it in this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge which is Anything Goes
And the gift I made was another stretchy bracelet, this time made with Quartz and Haematite.
That's it from me - I'd better come off the computer as my headache is throbbing again.
Hope to see you soon.
Love, Andrea xx
