Long time MIA again

This blogging thing really is a bit of a challenge for me I must say.    I am trying however, so who knows maybe you will see some more this week.

Last night I went to my sisters 40th birthday party so I want to share with you the gift and card - all made with love by me using SU products.    Please excuse the photography, we were running late to leave for the party so these were taken around 2am back at her house on hubbies Iphone so quality is not brilliant.

Her favourite colours are red and purple so I opted to put Real Red and Elegant Eggplant together with black to come up with this bold combination for her card, with the focal point of the card being the sparkly panel and 40.  

The gift is a recycled can which I wrapped with Black grossgrain ribbon and then finished with a flower made using the blossom punch.   This I filled with hersheys kisses and it contained the two roses in Real Red and Elegant Eggplant - they are actually pens, I fashion the roses to the pens using a combination of tombo and lots of patience.    I love these pens and will be making a whole lot more to sell at the various markets I have coming up.     Anyway, hope you like todays wee projects.

Till next time
