How was your Saturday?

Hello and happy Saturday to you! I hope that you have all had a great day. My day was pretty relaxed making some fudge to take to my Pop tomorrow for a belated birthday present, making a tissue holder to give to my Nan who celebrated her 82nd birthday on Friday and going on a date with my lovely husband to go and see Julie and Julia (a great movie by the way).
I also wanted to show you this quick and easy gift wrap, all I have used is a leftover party bag, folded it over punching some holes in the top and tied some ribbon in a bow to make it pretty. I added a tag and tied it around the bow putting rhinestones on the bow to hide the string of the tag. I then stuck a letter on the tag and added some more rhinestones, easy and pretty too.
And lastly I have a card to share with you that I made for my Nan last night. I did make a little bit of a mistake but didn't want to remake the card and so tried my best to correct the mistake. I stamped the sentiment last and because it was raised on one side the other side didn't come out so I restamped it but it didn't line up so I coloured in the gap. Probably not what I should have done but it was late and I think it gives a good effect? Better luck next time I say!

Have a lovely Sunday, see you tomorrow!
