Special birthday card

Evening all hope you have all had a great day,
I decided I better make some cards lol 
I have not made one since september 
My mum is going to be 70 in march and were 
having a family get together,
Her favorite col is blue, 

So I went through all my stash looking for blues 
as I am not a lover of blue I don't have much
I used one of my images from  graphic 45 lady's diary
Some blue ribbons feathers and flowers,
some peel off's and the card is gemstone from co ordinations.

Hope you like it.
Have a fabulous weekend

Hubby's jars with Etchall

Afternoon my lovelies hope your day is going well,
It is raining yet again here I hate it lol

Some of you might know last thursday my hubby was 50
lol and as we had a surprise party planned he was so shocked 
it was great,
So I wanted to do something nice but silly.
So we came up with this idea of jelly baby's jars
he loves them. 
We are using Etchall for todays tutorial 
Pop over and get your creme and start
playing it is amazing to use and reuse.

So we got 3 jars I added the sticky letters
then masked off  a square.

Then using the Etchall creme I covered the fronts 
I made it very thick so it had a great covering,

I used the little scraper to pull it over the glass,

Once all jars are covered leave for 15min 

Once time has elapsed carefully take of the excess and pop back
 into the jar for later use.

When you have taken all the creme off rinse of with water 
taking the tape and letters off at the same time. then dry completely
and you are done.  

And it took 5 bags of jelly babies to fill them,
Thank you for popping by it means a lot.
