So how are you all this Wednesday evening.......? I've been busy with half-term doing slow mornings, trips out, and some crafting while the children entertained themselves baking halloween gingerbread. I'm now ahead of myself as far as convention goes. I have my swaps made and am feeling rather smug about it.
I have a card to share with you that I made for Olivia's friend's birthday. It's perfect for the rising teens, but does have one cheat on it in that the shoe shape was cut using a die from my stash. However the gorgeous fresh and bright designer papers are one of the new hostess only purchases. The pack is called Cheerful Treats and is just lovely. Sadly the modern label punch I've used for the handbag retired in September, but you can create the same effect with some of our other punches. Itty bitty buttons are perfect for accessorising dresses like this and with the coordinating punches you can turn them into whatever colour you want them to be. The punched shapes also work well as a clasp on the handbag.
It was a great party I understand, but I can't believe how awful I now find the loud music and steamy atmosphere at drop off and pick up time. I also know that unlike the teenagers at the party, I cannot wear, well I could wear but wouldn't be able to move, shoes with killer heels such as these. I guess middle age is catching up with me!!!! Best go out and party to make the feeling go!
Have a great evening.
