Card and Tin For Mia

Ellie's friend Mia will be 5 next weekend. Ellie has been invited to her birthday party so I have made this card and tin for her.The card is made with patterned paper by Scissor Sisters, the letters and ovals are done on the Cricut, the stamp is a Sugar Nellie, the number is Chipboard painted with Acrylic paint and the flowers are done with a paper punch and then a lilac gem added to the centre of each. The tin was one I'd originally done as a baby boy tin for the flower shop - because the ribbons on it were blue and yellow I thought I'd just try and find some girly blue and yellow paper so that I could keep the same ribbons. I found this paper by Scissor Sisters in my stash and thought it would go nicely. It did look lovely but the yellow ribbons didn't really go, so I took the yellow ribbons off and replaced them with white. I added a white bow, made the tag and the "Mia" with the Cricut then stamped the Mongolia stamp and coloured it with Twinkling H2O's to match the paper.

I love the delicacy with which you have coloured the image. These are lovely and I'm sure Mia will love them and Ellie will be proud to give them.
Thanks for yr message:my bag was behind the door the kitchen door in the church hall while I was serving at the tables, so it has to have been soemone who had access to the kitchen!!! In a way, I don't really mind -if someone needed it that much I don't have much myself, but I don't mind sharing, but it was the shock of the invasion and the hassle of cancelling the cards that made me feel sick.
C'est la vie!
