What’s In My Shopping Bag Wednesday.

I can’t resist a bargain … and this Wednesday most of my goodies have come from Primark.
10p primark bangle10p Primark Hat

Both the bangle and beanie hat were 10p each!  I’m going to sew a few pretty mother of pearl buttons on the brim of the hat. and  cover the bangle with either Decopatch papers or strips of Kath Kithson gift wrap (if it goes on smoothly) that I have and then perhaps a few flat backed gems

Primark Wooden heart necklace 
It was the wooden hearts attracted me to this £2.50 necklace, I think they are too chunky for cards, but will make lovely gift tags, key rings or Christmas decorations when split up, but first I may wear it for a while.
30p Dr Who Stickers

This set of Dr Who stickers and four Darlek badges were 30p from the rummage box in paper shop across the road. I am thrilled, as my daughter is Dr Who mad and these will be ideal for her birthday card in a couple of weeks time.
Dovecraft Piece of Cake Glittered decoupage cupcakes
And finally, this Piece of Cake decoupage pad by Dovecraft was £6.99, not a bargain, but as anything with cupcakes disappears faster than I can make it, I just had to have it! The cupcakes are quite big, and I should be able  to make at least twenty four cards from the pad. I’ve already put all the cakes together, I just need to cut some card blanks and work out a design to use them on.

can't wait to see the cards you make with these.

Love the wooden necklace - i often go into primark now and look at the jewellery in a totally different light. I can't wear it though cos it makes my skin turn green - but usuallu great for embelishments.
