Happy 50:th Julia

Just a quick post showing you a necklace I made for Julia's 50:th birthday. I sent her a little of everything, some of these things I've already showed you; a brooch, a needleholder and a card. I wanted to make a special card with her name on it, but I just didn't have the energy. I couldn't even take an old card and add her name, so I decided it was more important that it got to her on time. I chose the bunny card as it's a little different and it fit the box I sent the rest in perfectly. Otherwise I would've sent it in an envelope and things might have broke. So this was the best solution. I sent it exactly 3 days before her b-day and it takes 3 days within europe. I'm so glad this was the time the postalservices decided to work in my favour.

I also made her a bookmark with a nice saying I thought suited her and an angel necklace. I asked which colours she preferred and she said "plum". Think this counts as plum?

I also want to let you know that only one person has claimed the sweetpea blogcandy. As I had three winners in total I will re-draw on monday if I don't hear from the two winners by tomorrow. So keep your finger's crossed if you entered and want to win :)

I'll be back soon with a sweetpea card I finished today. It was soo hard, but I've missed cardmaking so much so I pushed through. It's a very simple card, but as always I want the sweetpea stamps to speak for themselves.

Oh what lovely gifts, Katarina! I would definitely say that sweet angel is plum, and I love the romantic paragraph on the bookmark. xxD

I made these angel pendants for Christmas one year in the clear. I love them. I love it in plum too!
