Hello my crafty friends! How are you doing today? I have to say I had a very productive day today. I did some housework, finished something for work, finished a card and I even did some beading. I was busy. ;) One lady asked me to make a necklace for hers daughter-in-law-to-be birthday present. I haven't done any beading in ages so it was nice to make something else besides paper crafts for a change. While I was going through my stash of beads and pearls I noticed I have so many that I couldn't use in a couple of years. I completely forgot I had so many ... Eeek. I think I should put some of them to use and make some more bracelets, earrings etc. Now all I need is time ...
I can't show you the necklae I made today, but I can show you a card I finished earlier. :)
To make this card I used lots of leftover scraps of paper from my stash. I combined those with some flowers, dotty ribbon, lace, gems and pearls.
I coloured up this adorable mouse with Promarkers, pencils and distress inks.
Unfortunately you can't see this in the picture, but I covered the flower with gloss gel, which gives it a really pretty shiny look.
Hope you had a lovely Saturday and that you have a pleasant Sunday ahead. xx
P. S. Don't forget to enter my candy. :)
