Noah's Ark

Remember last week I posted a card that I had made for my niece? Well I also gave her a gift for her nursery (her daughter is due in May).    
A friend of mine (Carol) is very much into quilling, a part of crafting that I really don't have the patience to master!
I have taken pictures of the wrapped parcel, the bag and tag that I had made to put the gift into and of course the lovely Noah's Ark made by Carol.  What do you think? Isn't it just gorgeous?

Did you notice the little birdie with a piece of straw in his mouth on the top of the Ark?

Such a delicate parcel to wrap!

Love decorating the plain white bags and making them look special.  I used my favourite Stampin'Up! stamp set, Flourishing Flowers and the Primrose Petal ink.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Take care

Jo's Birthday Card


Good afternoon.  Boy am I glad that it is Saturday, mind you still have "jobs" to do today (woman's work is never done and all that!!).  Still I can do things at my leisure today.
Have managed to get all the washing done and pottered around as one does picking things up off the floor, sweeping, washing up etc and am now just having a breather and my lunch.

I plan on visiting my sister today whom I like to meet up with on a Saturday evening so we can go for a game of bingo!!  Its also my niece's birthday this week so wanted to take a card up to her.

So here it is........

As you can see I am very much into pastels and subtles!!  

Well, that's enough for today. Had better get off and finish my chores before I get myself ready for an evening of "me" time.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
