17th Birthday Card

17th Birthday Card
I made this card for my nieces best friend Beth.
I cut the large numbers out of my Quickutz Silhouette.  It is a brilliant tool, but I don’t use it half enough, despite having a monthly download subscription for templates from Quickutz.  (I was dead chuffed recently when I managed to master print and cut on it, no mean feat).
The letters are a mishmash of two different sets of letters from American Crafts (bought from QVC).
The large flowers are made using my retro flower whale of a punch, and the smaller flowers with a similar punch. The flowers are finished off with clear flat backed gems.

I’ve Been Shopping ….

A couple of days a way from home ….. and lots of time for mooching…..
So from Paperchase ….

All £1 a packet – they are small, but ideal for when I make a card using nine small square punchies.
I am not sure what I am going to do with the Bear Hug stickers yet – they might be good on Hug in a Mug hot chocolate packs.
I want to try the butterflies on my glass pendants as they are transparent.
From Accessorize ….. at £1.75 a packet …

The dolls are soooooo sweet – and I thought the hearts in this pack would make brilliant noses for Easter Bunnies.
I couldn’t resist getting another packet of the bird stickers as I have had some new ideas on how to use them……
Then on to Primark ……..

These earrings were £2, but I got 18 embellishments from them, the photo doesn’t do justice to the very sparkly jewel in the centre.  I know its a long way off – but my immediate thought was snowflakes……

These cute sweeties are from Poundland – I think I will put two in a sweetie bag with a cute bunny topper.
This nest is from Hobbycrafts - £1.99 – aint got a clue what to do with it ….. think I might just put some blue mini eggs in it and keep it on my shelf and see what they hatch into!

This is just pure indulgence from Harriet and Dee, a shop in Chester – when/if I have a crafty stall in the summer my braclets will look lovely hanging from it. (£5)
