Birthday Gifts

Its my friend Gayle's birthday tomorrow so I made some little gifts to add in with her main pressie which is some fab Molton Brown bath gel - Swoon!

Anyway I made her a felt brooch using my new butterfly dies. I used Raspberry fizz and Chartreuse felt. I added a raspberry fizz button too and stitched it together with black thread for a bit of contrast.

I got lots of lovely new paperclips from my fab friend Dawn in America. So I decided to use one of the green ones - Gayle adores green. SO I again went for a pink and green colour scheme but kept it predominantly green with a hint of pink. I used my background basics polka dot on the white circle before I added the butterfly. I decided to emboss the butterfly instead of stamping on it. I am chuffed with the results.

I also decorated a jar with the pink scallop and used text style with green ink on the white circle. I added a stamped butterfly with rhinestones - gotta love bling! Inside the jar are skittles - another of Gayle's loves :) The pic of the side of the jar was very fuzzy so I will take it again and add it to the post tomorrow.


  1. Awesome job on them all!!! Love them. TFS

  2. Liked the variety of butterflies - most effective.


Thanks for leaving me a message. hugs Lesleyx
