Take one vintage card & a pretty cup and saucer!!!!

I have been working my little socks off this week in preparation for the Made in the Shade Springtime Jamboree. I always have lots of ideas for new things in my head and inspiration and ideas can come from many different places. So I thought I would share with you the inspiration behind one of my new designs. Take one vintage card and a pretty cup and saucer.

As may already know, I have a thing about birds, so I am always on the look out for dainty little birds I can use in my designs. I found this lovely vintage greetings card and knew I could use the swallow with the tiny envelope at some point. The cup and saucer I found at the auction, it was part of a set and I still have a couple of trios left for sale. The design is so so pretty, I have used the same flower on the blog background and my header for my online shop.

Using the bird, rose, some special words and a hand stamped heart I have created a pretty set of circle stickers. There are two sheets of stickers in each set and they come in a cellophane bag, so would be perfect as a little gift for someone special too. They will be for sale at the Springtime Jamboree this weekend or from the online shop next week, priced £2.00. If you can't bear to give them away you can use them as a finishing touch to a little card or pop one on the back of an envelope.
