For the lovely Susan at work. Sue is a really good critique of my work as she has good taste and definate ideas about what works (Ive tried to pursuade her to get into crafting she would be sooo good!). Anyway she lives in a house full of males but likes girly things especially of a shabby chic nature. So here is her birthday pressie. A wooden heart, cant remember where I got it from but I need more NOW, K&Co papers I bought from the show yesterday. Heart painted with raspberry paint dabber. Paper edges torn then inked with raspberry ink. Happy birthday is a sprinkles, Faux stitching around the edges. Flowers punched with woodware punches (discovered my mum has the blue one as I have the yellow they go together perfectly!)tiny flower sequins then a gem stone added for some glamour. Book ring in the top and ribbon from stash added plus a little charm (also bought yesterday see I did NEED the stash I bought lol)which is in the shape of a hand and says hand made. Popped a greeting on the back. Think I will be making more of these if I can find out where I bought the shapes LOL!!
