A Leaving Gift

Hello folks - I've managed to pop back again this evening.

Eleri's Brownies leader is moving away so it was her last session this week.  I made her a card and a gift.

This image is from Digistamp Boutique - called Daisy and Flower, coloured with promarkers.  The flowers were from my stash.  The little butterflies are from a border die - do you like the way I added one little butterfly onto one of the roses?  The papers are Fancy Pants Beach Babe.

I'm entering this card in the Love to Create Challenge which is to use Three of Something - so I've used three little flower buttons and added three little pearls.  I will also enter it into the monthly Digistamp Boutique challenge.

And this is the gift I made:

I just love the way these white quartz gems are faceted and the way they catch the light.  This bracelet took me ages to make as I wanted to use rose quartz, but I couldn't get the blinking thread to go through the gems even after using a bead reamer to try to make the holes larger - I think I managed to get three on the thread and then couldn't find any others that would fit, so had to start again.  Lesson learned - make sure all your beads will fit on the thread before you start :)

So hopefully I'll be back again over the weekend with another creation.  See you then.

Love, Andrea xx
