Quotes...a joint project!!

Night duty over for this week at least though I'm not sure my body clock has reset yet!!
My daughter and I went to a craft session a little while ago where we played with ink, shimmer mists, masks and stamps. It was messy but fun and lovely to spend time crafting together!
So...what to do with the tags we made...well Niamh thought they would make a great present for her friend if we made a few more and added some of her favourite that's what we did.



We used a mix of stamps and hand-written words. Some pages were decorated with border punches to add interest and we put in some blank tags for Lizzie to add her own favourite quotes too.

I hope she likes it!!
If you'd like to see Niamh's take on our collaboration check out her blog post at Niamh creates and leave her a comment!!

With sympathy...

Just a short post today as I start nights tonight and won't be around much for the next couple of days!!
I find it hard to make sympathy cards want them to convey your love and care without being too fancy.
This is one I made for a friend recently.

I used pearlescent card for the base and the embossed butterflies, floral paper from my stash, a punched lace strip and a few crystals for the butterfly bodies. A stamped sentiment to finish.
Hope you like it.
