Frozen Candy Bar Take #2

Hi everyone!

Remember a few weeks ago I made a 5″ x 7″ frozen candy bar poster for my great niece’s birthday party.. well I made it too big and it didn’t fit the frame 🙂

Tonight’s project is another one this time it’s 4″ x 6″

It is packaged up and in a handmade envelope and will be posted out tomorrow for the party which I think is this weekend ..

I used glitter cardstock that does not shed any glitter, which is fab for a kiddies party

And here is the envelope I made to send it up to my niece..nice and bright and sparkly


and the back..any excuse to use some sparkly washi tape 😉

Right that’s me for the night, time ran away with me again, not enough hours in the day!   I was working late and by the time I got home, walked the dogs and had my tea and made this in my shed .. it’s super late!

Thanks for popping round
