GONE PINK MAD!! MAKING LITTLE GIFT CARDS..LISTING ON EBAY..














































Hello again ladies...well it has been a HOT one in Melbourne today...quite funny experiencing hot weather after having been in the depths of cold (winter) in Japan!! nevertheless..with quite efficient air conditioning..one does acclimatise !!
So being inside all day..venturing out just to get the inevitable grocery shop!! I have just been busy listing some bits & bobs on ebay....and painting a few things...making some "thank you' cards for purchasers on ebay.
whilst in japan i purchased some cute little stamps...a nice THANK YOU...a cute little poodle...and a Pink stamp pad...SOOO i have just quickly stamped a few cards I had at home...tied them all with a PINK little ribbon\.....
nothing fancy...and NOT that happy with them..but will refine it with a bit more time...(just a quick little thank you card to put in items i sell).
I have also kind of gone a little "BIRD" mad!! I found lots of pink tin birds...I have replaced their gold ribbon with my nice shabby pink ribbon...
I also found some 'CROSSES" i had stored away in my "ebay room"...they were a rusty tin type item...so i have just given them a quick pink wash...sealed them..and replaced the crappy brown ribbon ..with guess what??!! YES PINK RIBBON!!
I have also listed some gorgeous Vintage type Victorian women images...with their little bit of bling...they are a sturdy thick hanging type item...i replaced their ribbon with my inevitable pink ribbon...
I just think they are a lovely shabby goodie...to hang...to keep in a bowl...just to keep amongst other goodies... I have also taken down my country style calendar..and replaced it with the FrencH calendar my hubby bought me for Christmas...thought I should do the right thing by him.. PLUS I have phographed the lovely set of FRENCH CHIC stamps he also bought me..(lucky...they are different to the ones I already had..he didnt know that...so now I have a LOVELY BIG lot of FRench CHIC stamps to play with!! they will be added to the thank you for ebay purchasers..I have a lot of playing around to do.to get all these cards JUST RIGHT!!).
OH well...must head off to dinner...hubby is cooking some yummy Fresh Snapper fillets...I have made a quite nice salad...
am looking forward to watching the cricket tonight .... I am a TENNIS & CRICKET fanatic...in fact I just LOVE SPORT!! (sorry to all you ladies who hate sport...BUT I AM A totally addicted sports freak!!)...
so i wish my tennis elbow would get better...been about 10 weeks now!! off to the physio again tomorrow,.,.
I will be devasted if I cannot play again!!
have a lovely week everyone...keep blogging and let me know what is going on!
