A Birthday gift emsemble for a friend

It's been a while I know! Busy as usual these days! Some time off work this week though hopefully means we can recharge the batteries, catch up with the to do list and take some time out to do some nice enjoyable things! Although, typical, I've ended up with awful tooth ache and what looks like an abcess, so a trip to the dentist for me tomorrow :-(

Sorry the photos are not great, the lighting around here as been a bit hit and miss! Supplies used: 5x7 canvas/acrylic paint/plain craft gift bag/paper doilies/vintage seam binding, glass gilttered stars/ Kars glittered chipboard alphabet letters/Tim Holtz paper Rosette die which I got from Stampeezee/My Minds Eye - lost and found collection papers/flowers and jewelled embellishment from stash/buttons - Papertrey Ink.

I have lots of crafting to do, working on a large order for a lovely customer at the moment and in the process of samples for another. I'm waiting for a Papertrey Ink parcel and some others to arrive so I can get started with my own invitations too, I want to send them out at the beginning of June, lots of ideas for the design, can't wait for them to come together! I've also had another special little extra designed for us that involves lots of colouring, which I'm in the process of!! All will be revealed once they are all made and sent out, so watch this space!!

Thanks you to all those who have liked my Whimsical Wishes Facebook page, I now have 103 likers! So will be having a give away on there soon, it will coincide with the launch of my Etsy shop too! I will be putting some little craft supplies in my Etsy shop as well as handcrafted items, so it may be of interest if you like vintage seam binding, glass glittered accents or crystal/pearl jewelled embellishments.

Hope you are having a good week so far.

Love and hugs,
