Happy Birthday Dear Julie :-D

Happy Sunday to you!
Today is a very special day, it is my dear friend and up-line (Stampin' Up! Mummy) Julie's birthday!
Happy Birthday Jules. Jules lives a very long way away from me and I often wish we were closer in miles but I don't think we could be closer friends, wherever we lived :-)
Anyway, I really hope Julie has received this parcel and opened it before she see's this post, in fact I have scheduled it for a bit later than normal, just in case!
O.K. Be warned... we have yet another picture heavy post again today!
So, I was chatting to Julie a while ago and she said she was getting a sewing machine for her birthday, now I am really hoping she has because this is the first gift I made her! A pin cushion on top of a jar to keep thread in,
I have used Springtime Vintage DSP to wrap around the jar with a couple of die cut Fun Flowers topped off with a lovely big button,
some seam binding sewn to a strip of paper around the lid,
and finished with another big button on top of the pin cushion part,
Second gift I have made for her is a letter "J" to decorate her conservatoire ;-) I covered it in Wild Wasabi DSP as she loves green (I hope!)
I added a 3d flower to the bottom, tutorial in side bar <<<
some yummy wide striped grosgrain, this ribbon is just gorgeous for tying lush bows like this, finished with another big button in the centre,
and a bit of bling along the bottom edge, notice too the distressed edges, mmm.
and here is the card, I wanted to keep along the same sewing theme so I made this...
I inked all the squares with Crumb Cake ink before zig zag stitching around them,
Sentiment is from Basic Phrases inside a Four Frames punched out image and adhered on top of a seam binding bow,
and a little more stitching inside,
So, this is it all together with a pack of socks which I couldn't resist as they are very much like Baby Blossoms, don't you think??
Well Jules, I really hope you have the most amazing birthday and you are spoilt rotten by your boys, just as you deserve to be!
And thanks to you, lovely blog reader for visiting me today!
