A bit of a different share from me today.
Today is the birthday of a special friend .. .. someone who I have been friends with for many, many years. She used to live up the road to me when our kids were little and we all spent many happy hours together.
Sadly everyone has grown up now and the pressures of life take over and we don't meet up half as much as we should .. .. but the friendship is still there as good and strong as ever.
For our birthdays we agreed years ago to start a theme of "something for nothing" .. .. which means no spending money on a birthday present. We have had some fun with this over the years and have managed some ingenius gifts between us.
This year I was at a loss as to what I was going to give as my gift until I had a little brainwave .. .. here is my gift to my friend .. .. my "one of a kind" friend!
My George Basic Shape Cricut Cartridge to make a template for the heart
Sentiment: Hero Arts Clear Stamps: CL338 "Be Yourself"
Marianne Creatables: Rose Die
A bit of old curtaining for the heart
Stazon Inkpad for stamping the sentiment
Bead for the centre of the rose
Snippets of felt left for me by my lovely Sis (thanks Sis xx)
and there we go .. .. my something for nothing present finished.
So I walked round to deliver my little package (as I felt I needed the exercise) only to find my friend was not at home :-(
So I pushed her little package through the letter box along with her card .. .. but sadly I couldn't push her second present through .. .. .. a bag of homegrown frozen runner beans!!!!
Can you imagine somone asking what you had for your birthday and saying "some frozen runner beans!!" LOL!!!
Have a great evening everyone and a lovely weekend.
