I hope you've had a good weekend - there's another one flown by!
It was my Goddaughter's birthday on Friday, so I had to make her a card and gift, and here they are:
My favourite image again, coloured with Promarkers. I followed this week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch. The papers are K and Co - except the handmade red paper with the dotty pattern on it - I have no idea where I got that from but I found it in my paper stash - I had two small squares of it. Then just added some die cut flowers, adhesive pearls and stickles, and that's about it. The photo doesn't do it justice though - it was taken on a very dull morning!
Here's the gift I made - jewellery of course - a stretchy bracelent and earrings set
My Goddaughter loved them, especially the dangly earrings - well, she seemed to love them anyway! (I always find it nerveracking if someone opens their present in front of me - I thinks it's best not to be there when they open their present in case you see that they don't really like what you're giving - but then that's probably just my lack of confidence coming through LOL!). The gemstones this time are sodalite, black labradorite and jade. Again, a pretty bad photo - no sunshine!
That's probably enough from me. I'm really hoping to have some time off work this week - I had booked a week off from this coming Wednesday, but already I've had to change it, I've got to go back in to work on Tuesday 29th November, and it's possible I'll have to go back sooner! I want to get on with some Christmas shopping and gift making, and I'll have to really pull my socks up and get shifting, because it's possible I'll have to work 5 days a week when I do return to work, right up until Christmas, and maybe beyond that too - things are very much 'up in the air' at work at the moment! And, if I am working 5 days a week it doesn't leave me much time for shopping without the children - I think there's only one weekend left before Christmas that Richard won't be working!
Bye for now - have a great week!
Love, Andrea xx
