"Extended Lunch Break"!!

Hello and happy Tuesday to all you lovely crafter's. Ha ha,
Well, I didn't get much posting done yesterday did I??
My friend phoned who I haven't spoken to for ages and the
next thing I know hubby is home wanting his dinner!!!Lol....
I did manage to catch up with some blog hopping though.
So here is the rest of yesterday's posting, as I announced on
my previous post...Brace Yourselves!!!.............
I have made another one of those Note Holder's, this time using a
lovely PB image that was sent to me! Well I think this is the
funniest image! I was late sending a card to my friend for her
birthday (are all card makers like this)? so I made her this little
gift too, she like me, is an avid cat lover!! I've only known her
for 20 years!!! so you would think I would know her birthday
off by heart!!
This can be so versatile!! It could be made up with any image
to suit and you can also attach any little sentiment to it! I think
it would be ideal for children's bedrooms!!

This one I made earlier!!Lol!, do you remember that big brown
ugly peg!!! urrrr well I found this fab paint and hey presto!!!
shabby chic peg!!! Much nicer don't you think?

As you can see here just by sanding with an old emery board
or a piece of sand paper you get a nice distressed look. I have
marked the centre back of the board (which I have covered
with some new papers from PM call Regency, they are just
divine!! for the front I have used BG Bitter Sweet), I then
scored the paper before I glued the peg to ensure a firm
fix to the board underneath and not the papers.

For the tag I stamped my circle sentiment from PM onto my
punched flower shape twice, just by slightly turning it, it
made the circle complete and gave a nice 3d effect.

So finally I wrote a little note which I stamped with the cat stamp
(Which was also on her Birthday card) and cut out part of the tail
Tucked it under and placed it into a box with tissue paper. Just
to let you know this is A5 in size. Phew.. All ribbons lace and
flowers from stash. Think that's everything! TFL Sue xx I have
just seen the ABC Challenge this week which is N for Not a Card,
well this little note holder fits the bill just nicely so think I will
enter it! Sue xx

Ahh Sue, this is so sweet, colours of course my favourite!! The image is too cute. I need to try to make one of these little to do list holders, they are so much prettier than a note pad!!
don't feel bad about your friends b'day.......I am the worst when it comes to that. It's not that I don't remember...it's trying to get the card or gift to the recipient ON TIME!!!! I think it's coz being a cardmaker....we want to make something special then we get soooooo busy making cards for challenges that the everyday cards get lost in the process!!! Anyway, she will just love it...it's gorgeous!!
