Seam binding, butterflies, and bling...

A couple of cards I whipped up, using goodies from Bluebird Lane on etsy, which I love, love.  I even used some of the lovely little bits that were used to package up my order - thanks Bluebird Lane ;)   I love polka dots..and once again, I've simply made my own with some 1" punchies of ivory cardstock. Went around the edge of the card with a Versa colour cube, in Bark.  Little pink loveheart rhinestones to finish it off.

Now I apologise for the ordinary photo. ..hangs head in shame..;) Don't you love the little birds with silver, vintage-looking glitter on? They are all silvery and sparkly, I swear!!  I used my Martha Stewart Scallop Dot border punch down the side.  The blue gingham paper is made by Print Blocks (an Australian company) - it is a lovely paper, beautiful quality.  Now for this one, I made a coordinating envelope in the same blue gingham paper, using my envelope template.  This was a birthday card for one of my SILs, and I popped in a bookmark from the lovely Lyn's etsy store, Angelic Aspirations.  Hmmm, she doesn't seem to have any bookmarks listed just at the moment, so check back for those.  Any bookmarks coming Lyn?  :) And the HBDAY is stencilled on with a sweet little stencil picked up in Kmart, of all places! and a Uniball Signo pen, in Angelic.


  1. hi, well Lyn from Angelic Aspirations had trouble posting a comment, as did I recently..cough..but here is the info from her:

    I can tell you that I currently have 41 listings for bookmarks on the site, but none in the Etsy store. The website will be temporarily unmanned until early October due to some family commitments. I am sending out a newsletter today to that effect. The Etsy store will be closing from 7 September until 5 October.
