Dandelion Wishes & New Gemstone Necklace

Hi everyone!

Today I'm featuring my Dandelion Wishes handmade card and Charcoal Granite beaded necklace.

For my Dandelion Wishes card, I went with some really great floral paper from My Mind's Eye, and then colored the image to match. I adhered the image, paper flower and sentiment with various levels of foam tape for some added dimension and added the red rhinestone center for some color. I somehow broke my jumbo daisy punch in the process though - so that was kind of a bummer but it just gives me an excuse to shop for some more stash!

My Charcoal Granite necklace was made with jungle Jaspar and all natural gemstones. The beads pretty much can stand on their own so I didn't go too crazy with this one. Sometimes less is more, right?

On a different note, I get a lot of e-mails from people asking how I'm able to ship internationally from home. I have an account with which allows me to print postage right from my studio and mail it out in my own mailbox. In terms of international, has a customs form feature where you can fill out your electronic form online and it will include itself within the label. Anything under 16 oz can be placed in your mailbox. My mailman picks it up all the time - I've never had a problem. Hope that helps. Feel free to e-mail me if you have more questions or concerns though!

Have a great rest of the weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
