Sunday, Sketch & Stamp Challenge

Better late than never LOL My 1st Creation for this week was sold by mistake LOL I didn't have the same materials so I made a different one, you'll have to take my word on it that it was lovely!!!
I'm never in the mood this early but it was a nice change to have a play with this weeks sketch, I love this little Magnolia Stamp, I sparkled him up a wee bit though with the new Copic Glitter Clear Pen, yoou can see it more on the bottom pic.
Hope you had a great weekend x

Happy Birthday To Me :)

It was my **rd Birthday today and I was truly spoiled!!! Hubs scored major brownie points, he made out the Suzanne Woolcott Original I was after was out of stock, so it was just as well I had no customers this morning in the shop as I let out the loudest scream when I opened the package!!!

My friend Maggie treated me to a beautiful card and this great stack of wrapping paper and lovely candle x

The lovely Carole made me this cutie Teddie just in my colours and my fav fresh Heather.

The fabulous Tracy turned up with rubber, one of her lush homemade Choc cakes and the wonderful Jenny. I had such a great morning hanging out sharing cake and coffee and talking crafts

Can you believe more cake!!!! Cute Pink Glittered Ones from the very lovely Emma :)

I was given a beautiful Panduro bracelet from my Mum & Dad along with the most yummy Chinese meal. My kiddies made my great cards and gave me Green & Black assorted mini choc bar selection.

I have had such a fab day and I am really looking forward to seeing Hubs tonight when he gets back tonight. We are having a family day together on Sat, I have always wanted to see a Ron Mueck exhibition and there is one in Aberdeen I am super excited!!!

Love to you all for making my day great xxx

Tiara Heaven!!!

This flower and I have a love hate relationship- My customers love it and now I hate making it!!! It never plays the way I want it too LOL

An old fav but it don't half kill the fingers making it LOL

I loved the lines on the button and wanted to see the mix of feather, crystal & metal, not to struck on it myself but it has been popular.

Free Styleeee I love how the wire is very forgiving and I can let myself play :)

This one was inspired from the clients shoes from my fav shoe store Schuh, Swarovski Crystals all the way for this lady!

These pearls have been in my stash for years and years as I vowed I'd never make a pearly necklace, a real one off.

Freshwater coins came in on an order and they are so beautiful I felt something plain and simple was called for to show off their stunning colour.

Playing With Wire

I am sooo into these wired rings lately, they are great fun once you get the hand of it, You Tube is an amazing place for tutorials so instead of buying books try there 1st, I leaned all my ring making from there although no where near as great as the tutors.
We tool delivery of some amazing beads last week and the green beads at the top are roundels with a fantastic sparkle, I was itching to try them!!! I am pleased with how the wire working scroll turned out but I think the bead should be a bit larger so I'll have to go put an order in for those, oh it's a hard life! LOL
I spend the day playing with Tiara's again, I have some beautiful Freshwater Pearls in stock that I had to play with and some run of the mill pearls but the pics will have to wait for another day :)

Jewellery Pics & Coffee Treat

I am sooo loving the ring making at the mo and so do you customers :) I need to find myself a ring mandrel though so I can make different sizes!

This was my Mums birthday pressie from my Dad, Its a beautiful ring shaped St.Silver neck chain with a huge chunk of Swarovski Crystal, the pic really doesn't show it at it's best, I liked it that much a made one for myself with a Swarovski Starfish

I am thoroughly ashamed to say this was my treat when I was out with my mate for 'Cappuccino time' this week, a beautifully tasty black pudding tower!!!! The head on that cappuccino I kid you not was about 2" high and it tasted real good :) I will be good next time and just have a Cinnamon & apple scone mmmmmmmmm

Lovely Day

The New Swarovski 5301 are in stock Crystal AB, I've taken a pic of the old cut and new cut so you can see the difference. There are a lot of bogus crystal out there and it is really hard to know, a few pointers if you can ask your supplier to see packaging, you shouldn't be paying any less than 7p per 4mm bicone and Swarovski Crystals aren't supplied from Swarovski on a string!!!! LOL

Old Style

New Style

I'd also like to wish my Mum a Happy Birthday, 21 again :) Not that my Mum is called Hannah, it's the only B/card I have to show as her one is for the next SSS Challenge LOL
Hope you all had a great weekend x
