Happy birthday to my gorgeous little man who is 2 today! Things haven't gone to plan as he's been poorly since Tuesday and still grotty today so we've postponed his little party and trip out till next week. Still he's enjoyed opening his prezzies, he likes his talking Lightning McQueen best and his ball dome tent (Which molly also likes!)

Oooh beads & charms!

Not really been one for beads or charms, mainly because I never find the beads I really want and I thought charms were dead expensive, the charms I had were like 3 UK pound for 3 but then they were gold plated! My secret santa Freyja sent me some wonderful "Old black beads" and they were fabulous and also some charms so since then Ive started to use them in projects more. Imagine my joy when I find some fantastic beads and charms on ebay and with a very small price tag! I also splashed on some swarovski beads (about 4 UK pound) and they are just stunning! Anyhow here's a couple I made with them.

First one is for Nicola who's just had a baby boy. I was waiting on the forever friends baby stamp but when it arrived its the size of a postage stamp so couldnt use it. Fancy making it that small!!

I like how the charms and beads just finish it off nicely without overpowering the image. This one has a clear glass heart and one with a blue stripe through, swarovski beads and silver heart charms. Coloured image with distress inks and background is cuttlebug baby on starburst stains.
PS.... Charms are from She is 100% for a reason! :)

This one is a sugar nellie Sweet Art Ebony stamp (Sweet n Sassy) Various background papers, coloured with distress ink and sakura glitter and finished off with a blue glass frosted heart and butterfly charm.

This is a valentines off Eefie to Ruby lol! Newtons Law bear stamp (I LOVE NEWTONS LAW!!!) with Bo Bunny papers, ribbon and some beads.

This one is for the black and white swap on crafty cardmaking, its off to India! Never posted to India before :D I love black and white cards at the mo!

And lastly the Triptych ATC's for Katys Corner swap. Not sure if I've done them right so will check before I post them lol! They are coloured with H2O's mixed with solar gold radiant rain, the front panels are cuttlebug swiss dots and the bird stamp is simple expressions the orient plate, embossed with moonglow EP.
