A few bits and pieces

A sympathy card I made for an elderly neighbour whose husband passed away a couple of days ago. The brown background has been stamped tone on tone with butterflies but they didn't photograph well, neither did the embossed white buttterflies inside the card..
Stamps-Lucy's and Hero arts(sentiment) Ribbon and pink and white cardstock-PTI Bling-Hero arts Brown cardstock-unknown unfortunately because it is gorgeous. Markers-copic

A little altered chalkboard that hangs in my nook
A little matchbook album my photos came in that I covered. It holds photos taken with a disposable waterproof camera over summer. The letters were first painted white then a coat of JoSonja's opal dust was applied after this dried, it gives a really cool pearly, glittery effect. The papers and flowers are from Kaiser
This cute little flower was a thank you gift from my friend http://kathryn-timeforachat.blogspot.com/ , the pattern is here . Excuse the sad little plant
Joseph decided he would make me one too, all he needs to do is add the stick and finish stitching, my favourite mothers day gift.
Over the long weekend I managed to finish off a few projects that have been hanging around bugging me for ages. The weather was cold and damp and I had a yucky head cold so it was the ideal chance to just hang at home.
