Winter Birthday

Hello there ...
Thanks ever so much for your comments and advice following my last posting ... You guys are the best!  I am so glad that you can still access my blog now I have changed the settings ... hopefully these awful spammers will back off ...

Well it's freezing here ... The shops are full of Christmas shoppers and lots of people are braving the weather to decorate the outside of their houses with pretty lights and ribbons ... sometimes you can see a bit of a competition going on between neighbours ... who has the best display! No matter ... it does look pretty and cosy seeing the lights ...

I had to make a birthday card for my friend yesterday ... having taken ages to get into making Christmas cards all year for Jingle Belles ... I am now struggling to switch to birthday cards! I am still thinking glitter and lilac and grey ... I pondered for the longest time about this card ... fiddling with this and that ... In the end I just had to go with the glitter, the greys and the fishtails again and hope it would work ... 
What do you think?


The felt flower is cut with a Sizzix die and I find it works much easier with felt than paper ... it kind of rolls better


I'm wondering if you can see that I put little dots of liquid pearls on the tulle ... it looks so pretty IRL ... one of those things that started of as a mistake but became a nice idea


My friend like me loves all things animal print ... so I bought her a lovely top in animal print that perfectly matches paper from Basic Grey (Little black dress) ... which I used to make a matching necklace for her



I took them round this morning and she was absolutely delighted! It's such a nice feeling when you make someone smile ...

I hope you are enjoying your Sunday ... Thanks so much for stopping by .... I'll be visiting your blogs later today to see how you are and your lovely creations that always make me smile

Till soon
