Thanks Jacque!

I got some happy mail the other week from my blog buddie Jacque.  She is a scrapbooker and papercrafter and she makes wonderful embellishments  that she sells in her artfire shop and they are perfect for both pages and cards ... the happy mail?  a whole lot of her goodies to play with!

 These wonderful felt and fabric orange lollipop flowers just screamed to be put on long ribbon stems and on a tall bright card ... these were great fun to play with ... they came with wonderful blue button centres but i changed the buttons up to evoke a spring feeling

 I loved working with this beautiful glittered chiffon flower ... i didn't have to do much to make a beautiful card with it!
 oh, i do love birds and Jacque send me several ... this little guy is so bright and whimsical ... i added a flower button eye to him and perched him on a cage ... so cute and so easy to do.

 This little bird was so soft and sweet ... i stuck a feather on the card just under him and gave him a pastel pink brad for an eye, too match the colour theme of the card.

Jacque's embellishments make it so easy to put a card together quickly and end up with a beautiful product ...

Thanks Jacque ... and for all my readers check out her pretty little artfire shop.

Peace, love & paper
Jo
