I Love My New Banner!


I am sooooo lucky to have a friend like Karen who created this gorgeous new banner for my blog. The colours are just lush and I love the little birdie with a heart in it's wing. Karen is such a lovely person and we became 'cyber-friends' by chance through me buying stash from her shop 'Charmed Cards and Crafts' - http://www.charmedcardsandcrafts.co.uk/ and as well as a really well stocked shop there is a great friendly forum there too with a lovely bunch of girls - check it out, everyone is welcome. Thanks Karen - a card is winging its way to you to say thanks! She is also responsible for me becoming a Rockin Girl Blogger, so thanks again - I just need to choose my five favourites to tag now.
I created this thank you card for my friends Olga and Adrionos in Cyprus who really made our holiday with their wonderful hospitality. Papers are BG Recess, Prima flowers, PM brads, handmade orange and gold paper, rub-ons and stitching detail. I wanted the colours to reflect the warmth felt from them as well as the sun!
My nail technician bought 3 cards from me yesterday and I have to admit feeling sad at letting them go. Do you ever feel that? I think it's probably because the cards I have made recently have had so much more put into them than the ones I make for school fundraising, which are much more simple to put together. Still, at least I photographed them so I could recreate if I wanted to.
Rung my crafty friend Sally last night to ask if she wanted to come to G-Mex on Saturday and she was really excited about going. It's much more fun going with someone else and, going by our previous visits to shows, we will be there until chucking out time! Really looking forward to seeing all that new stash - I feel like a child coming downstairs on Christmas morning when I go in the exhibition halls, lol.
Right then, time to get creative!
