Hmmmmmmmmmmm...

After a birthday comes "Thank You" cards, but
I was really stumped as to what I should use or
do or make....Hmmmmmmm...Hmmmmmmm...
then I got an idea!


I thought I could take some pictures and make
them into something "postcard-ish"....

(SIDEBAR...beneath the pictures is the gorgeous
new quilt that Bee gave me...my assistant was
much more enamoured with the plastic bag it
came in...I think he should have been a baby
kangaroo!)



but then I got a bit carried away, I just kept
cutting and gluing and tying and they all
ended up with a bit too many foo-foos and
doo dads so the postcards became cards.

I'm do hope the glitter, etc. fared well as they
made their way through the postal system tho.... :)

  2. What spectacular Thank You cards!! I love a little bit of sparkle in the mail..but then hey as already discussed, I am with you on the love of sparkle. I even had to get some Starfish today and when questioned by others I just replied...Oh I have seen them somewhere and they looked fabulous...these people would so not understand the blog thing...but soon i shall have sparkly starfish too...but mine are the non smelly variety and they already come with a basic white glittering....thanks for the inspiration, Kiss Noises Linda Lilly Cottage.

  5. Hi M!
    They turned out beautiful! It takes a special talent to put all those little things together to make such an incredible item. I have such a hard time doing that and admire such talent!!

  7. I didn't know which post to leave a comment on because I thought this one and the glitter fab one were both SOOOO neat! I love seeing a blog and thinking 'WHAT A GRAND IDEA'. And that is exactly what I was just thinking as I read and gawked at your posts. Have a wonderful upcoming weekend. I'm sure I will be visiting again before that. Wendy
