Had a lovely crafting weekend
.......on our way home from shopping Saturday
got a invite out for a friends birthday.
So needed to make a card and present
The card I made using items from the DOCRAFTS goody bag I had just brought.
And as a present I made her a telephone message pad using the set of vintage URBAN STAMPS. I love this set although I am slightly confused by the inclusion of a VW split screen camper van in a range of British iconic images. http://www.docrafts.com/product/5X7-URBAN-STAMPS--VINTAGE/p86361
The telephone box is perfect for a message pad. I found out by accident while making the message pad that if the ink from SUKURA pens is still wet when micro/accent beads are put onto it then the beads stick to the ink. It looked really good I will use this again on future projects.
Had a lovely evening celebrating her birthday with friends.

What I really wanted to do was do some more of the book I am altering but "work" if I can get away as decribing the headbands as that came first. I will try and find time to carry on with the book in the week.
