My Friend…a Pocket letter

I had mentioned last weekend that Sharon and I made pocket letters all weekend.
This is one that I secretly made for Sharon :)
Funny as we were sitting beside each other and she didn't realize that this was for her, teehee.
I tried to incorporate some of her favourite things and her favourite colour…blue.

I used this "Friends" sticker..isn't it sweet.
The only thing is it blended in with the light background.
So I added some strips of washi tape to the paper so it would show up clearer.

I brought my huge binder of stickers and picked out this really pretty frame.

I stamped this sentiment…I thought it was perfect for our friendship, as we are always laughing about something…..even if no one else finds it funny, teehee.

Sharon loves hummingbirds :)
So this sticker was not only pretty, but perfect for her Pocket Letter.
And I got to use one of my brand new stamps "Best Friends"

Sharon is also a BIG coffee lover.
Not your fancy mocha latte cappa frapachino (as you can tell, I don't drink coffee, teehee) but old fashion coffee ;)
I stamped this coffee cup, fussy cut it out and then coloured this heart on the coffee cup.

I had a couple of these jars that I had punched out in my stash.
This one was just plain grey card stock and it didn't really pop off of this card.
I added some layers of butterfly washi tape and voila…butterflies in a jar :)

Considering we had limited supplies, I think I did pretty good….at least Sharon loved it.

Onto My Day:
I spent my day working on Ashley's Guest book for her wedding.
I was having trouble with the coils as I needed them white and only had black.
I spray painted them, but over the last few days, the spray paint kept flaking off.
So I started over with some new coils.
I lightly sanded the black coils, gave a few coats of white spray paint, lastly I added a few coats of glossy clear coats.
So far so good :)
I can now check the guest book off of my list.

I hope you all had a very Creative day :)
