A Birthday & Notelet Cards

Good evening dear blogfriends... well, the weekend is almost upon us and I'm certainly looking forward to it.  It has got a bit overcast and a few showers are expected overnight or early tomorrow morning... what a relief!

I haven't been sitting idle this week.  I've made another birthday card, which I was commissioned to do and in addition, I decided to make a few blank Notelet cards as a gift set for someone who is celebrating her birthday today. I thoroughly enjoyed making them last night. It was really a challenge just using paper, ribbon and embellies with NO STAMPS... yikes!!!... but I was so pleased with the result that I am going to make a few more to keep on hand for those special occasions during the year.  This is a lengthy post because of all the pics, so hang in there...

Here's the birthday card... just love those MME papers and ribbon...
I just love the pink satin ribbon. It is so soft and silky to the touch. The flowers are from my stash and the sentiment is from a local company.

The lovely punched white border was sent to me by my blogfriend Amelia.  I just love them and you'll see a few more in the next set of Notelets I've made.  Here's my first Notelet card. The flowers were a gift from Amelia as well. Just love them. They just added the finishing touch to this card, don't you think? I've used my embossed folder again and am so enjoying doing so.

And here's my second Notelet card. The gorgeous flower was a purchase from Scrap Delight at Burgundy Square. They are covered in glitter and are absolutely stunning! Once again this border was punched out for me by Amelia, thanks so much, doesn't it make a pretty picture?


Notelet number 3...  Once again using lovely papers from MME and my tiny pink pearls and flower. Added some pins, which I haven't used for a while and threaded some beads onto them... hope you like it?  Apologies for the quality of this pic...


Almost done... here's Notelet number 4...  I just LOVE this lace which Amelia sent me.  I am using it sparingly because it is so stunning, I want it to last forEVER...lol   Just added a few pearls for a bit of class...

And now for the final one... if you've lasted this long, thanks so much, I appreciate it...

Once again the border punched for me by Amelia... thanks so much my friend, I just love this one to bits... it has made such a pretty card.

That's it for this evening.  Thanks so much for passing by once again.  I hope I have inspired you to try something new... no stamps... perhaps there is still time to make a few notelets for that girlfriend of yours before Christmas.  I am sure she will appreciate them...

Tons of hugs, Sharon
