Earlier in the week I mentioned I had received a very special handmade card from a friend/co-worker who is also a stampin' up representative.
She is very talented and extremely detail oriented. Her cards are always beautiful AND heart-felt.
Considering all of the many things she has going on in her life such as work, real estate business, grandchildren and stampin-up, she made the time to create a birthday card for me!
That makes me feel so special!! She was also extremely generous to include a Michael's gift card! Wow!
I immediately thought I'd love to find a way to remember this in the form of a piece of jewelry.
I thought it would be a nice reminder of the lengths a friend went to just for me. Carrying around that special feeling would be comforting.
I took the card to Michael's and looked for beads with similar colors. I had no idea until earlier this evening what I was actually trying to make.
After a number of other ideas I remembered I had a sterling plated cuff with holes for "sewing" on beads. I just started sewing! I thought this was certainly unique and sweetly representative of this wonderful gift.
I hope you are all having crafty weekends out there too! See you tomorrow!
