It was my birthday on Saturday (29 again), thanks for the lovely cards and wishes I received. I had some great pressies and some cash for stash whoo! Mum and dad have paid for the sewing machine I've ordered, which still hasn't arrived ggrr. It's only a basic one, but it's all I need.
One present I got is soo scrummy it needs blogging!
Even the box it came in is gorgeous! This satisfies not only my love of cupcake things, but also my love of mugs.
It was a busy weekend in all but I managed to finish two notebooks, one of which was for a birthday gift for tomorrow and the other I'm keeping as the one I got in a swap is finally full. I just hope mine manages to stay intact this long.
Both are covered with autumn leaves papers, flowers and ribbons from stash. I was really pleased with the letters for Phoebe's book. They are cut from chipboard and card I'd coloured using a brilliance trio inkpad. Once the glossy accents had dried, the shimmer showed through really well.
This morning I did the DCM dare from Friday - circle of friends, which had to be a friendship card that included circles. This was the first challenge they made a year ago on starting. I've been doing them for a few months now and I'd like to thank them and the other people who take part for inspiring me to make different types of cards. I think my cardmaking has improved since I began doing the challenges even if it costs a small fortune because I just have to have stuff I see on the other cards!
The pp is Renae's house by creative imaginations and the font is elastic wrath.
I've started knitting my monkey, I remembered most things which is amazing as I can't remember lunch! It might take a while to make judging by the progress.
Thanks for stopping by x
