Happy Birthday Freya and a bit of upcycling

Hi there, gosh, two posts in a week, I'm on a roll lol.

First I'd like to share a card I made yesterday with an older Tilda stamp, so old I'm not actually sure what she's called, my bad.  I've coloured her with distress inks and added a little bit of frantage around her and stardust stickles on her pinny and the flower.  The sentiment was computer generated.
The card is for a friend of my daughter.  She's called Freya but everyone calls her Frezpot, so a nice bit of personalisation for her.  I know she loves blue so I made sure that was the more prominent colour.  Everything is from my stash which I'm desperately trying to use up so I can buy myself some more bits and bobs.  I followed a sketch from mojo monday which helped me along with my layout.

The next couple of pics show a project I've just finished today.  Waste not want not as they say, so I decorated an old plastic iPhone case with bits from my stash.  I intend to fill it with some homemade crunchie fudge and give it to Freya for her birthday.

Hope you like my little shares today, thank you for visiting my little blog
