Sugar Nellie and Trinkettes!
Morning all! Well that is it. The boys have their bags packed and marched off to school for the last time for 6 weeks.
Tomorrow I will encourage them to sleep past 6:30 am! 8:00am would be perfect! What are the chances???
Anyway, today I want to get the house ship shape before chaos reigns!
But before that I want to share with you the last of the teacher's gifts I made. Again, I made one of the gorgeous 'Trinkettes' charm braclets, available from Funky Kits, which took me, oooooohhhh maybe all of 5 minutes to put together! Put it in a pretty bag and voila!
The card is made using on of the gorgeous Sugar Nellie images from the Sweet Art Ebony collection. I have had this image for ever in my collection but I love the motion of the wind in her hair. Just gorgeous!
I used shades of blue and brown prisma pencil to colour her and then used some of the stunning paper from the Ella Blue collection from G.C.D Studios. I wasn't going to stitch this one together as I was putting it together quite last minute, but then it looked very bare to me...so it got the sewing machine treatment!! To finish I added a Cats Life sentiment, a stain ribbon bow, flower and a couple of pins!
I am quite happy with this one...so happy that I made 2 of them! One to give away and one to put in my Etsy shop!! :) It will be listed in there shortly!
Thanks for your time today! I love reading all your comments and they are very much appreciated.
Hope you have a fabulous Friday!
