A 40th birthday, some beading, Top 3 at Lili of the Valley!!!!

Where did the weekend go? Oh yes, football, shopping, unshopping, a party and its Monday night already!!

It was a friend's 40th party on Saturday so of course I had to make a card.

The background paper is pink and black not that it shows in this photo and I can't take another one now as I don't have the card any more! Love making easel cards, shame I can't photograph them very well....

I went to the local bead bar, Destinctive Designs last weekend, which has recently moved into Silver Springs nursery. If you are in the Titchfield area be sure to make a visit. Debbie who owns the shop is lovely and nothing is too much trouble. Needless to say this has reignited my interest in beading and I only went to look at Troll bracelets and beads!!

I saw this design as a sample of one of the workshops they run and just had to have one. I am ashamed to say I copied it, even down to the colours used, but they are lovely, green is one of my favourite colours. Yes, so my bead collection has had an airing, my mind is working overtime and I don't know what to do next, cards, scrapbooking, quilting, knitting or play on the computer...

I managed to fit in some quilting on Friday evening, its coming together nicely now and I hope to be able to show you some pictures soon.

Off to catch up with some challenges now.

WOO HOO, I've just discovered I made the Top 3 with my entry for Lili of the Valley challenge last week, that's made my day!!! I just adore their stamps, they are such fun to work with. There are several coloured images sat patiently on my desk waiting to be put on a card.

Hi Sam, I always think it is so personal when you receive a hand made card and the added beads make it very special. Also like the necklace. Dividing your time between your many loves can be a problem, but it is so nice to enjoy so many pleasurers. Have fun.
