Dearest neighbour..

Hello creative friends, 

I hope you are all keeping well? 
What glorious weather we've been having, teamed with a 
couple of creative play days my weekend has been just perfect...
I've so many tags with techniques that never amount to anything, 
as my minds been drawn to creating something special for my dear 
neighbour's monumental 100 Birthday this year I've been playing 
with lots of ephemera and stamped TH tickets, adding a die cut 100. 
Funny thing is this stamp set is also SA's 100th Collection...

This napkin image reminds me of two little princesses, with big sis wearing 
the crown. I'm sure my neighbour will be wearing her finest hat in celebration 
of her special day when she receives her birthday greeting from the Queen.

Losing myself in the finer details of hand stitching, buttons and brads, 
butterflies, flowers and lace, I attached a triple ring clasp creating a 
tag flip journal, now all those extra ideas can stay close to hand..

Thank you so much for stopping by today
wishing you all safe sunny days 

Creative wishes 
Tracey xx

Sharing today's creativity with: 

Inspired by Evelyn's creative sketch book cover, 
paperdoll and flower ephemera and die cut 100..
