Ahoy There Matey!!!

This is a card I did for a colleague who has someone in her department retiring on Friday - really quite pleased with this one (just cos the papers are so cool).

The chap retiring is one of the Assistant Harbourmasters, so I think this one is quite apt. All the papers are English Paper Company (it's such a shame they're closing down - need more decent Brit paper manufacturers), cricle frame is a Cuttlebug one and the text is printed using Boring Showers font (another current fave of mine). I chalked the edges of the ship circle with dark blue and used a light sky blue round the edges of the papers.

This is a necklace and simple earrings I made for a lady in our neighbourhood (actually, do we have neighbourhoods in Scotland or am I [SHOCK HORROR!!!] turning all Americanified?). I used 4mm & 6mm Swarovski bicone crystals in Clear & Jet. A 40mm Teardrop Pendant in Clear. Home-made pendant-bail-type-thingy is made using sterling silver wire and bicone beads. Toggle clasp is also sterling silver.

Thanks for looking. I'll be back with more things soon.

Toodles xoxo
