Sweet Sunday Sketch #45 and a spoiled surprise...

Nothing like leaving things until the last minute, although as it's my standard MO with pretty much everything, anything else would be out of character ;-)

Although in this case unfortunately, it means revealing a surprise that I haven't yet managed to get into the post, as I'm pretty sure that the person it will eventually grace the mailbox of checks in here several times daily...

You may recall that I offered a little prize for the first person to correctly guess the multitude of stamp sets that I took greeting stamps from to create the anniversary card for my handsome man.

Well this is the prize that I made for them.

The Sweet Sunday Sketch that I based this project on finishes in about an hour 25 minutes from now, so I will be brief with the banter (is that cheering I hear?!), and get right to the point...

Here's the sketch:

And here's my version of it:

Instead of a card, I covered the front of a notebook with the sketch and am rather happy with the result.

Notice the sparkly brad?  I didn't have any coloured brads that would work with the colour scheme that I chose, so I plonked a mini glue dot on the top of a silver brad and dipped it into Pink Fine Supernova Glitter.

See...?

As well as being a sneak peek for the intended recipient, it's also a sneak peek of a couple of new products that will be arriving with the Summer Mini catalogue on December 1.

They're not super obvious, but they're there....!

So check your mailbox some time next week SJ and you'll find this, along with some other goodies that I'll pop in so you do get somewhat of a surprise ;-)

Or better yet, pop over for a coffee and I can hand it to you in person!

Cass, if you're reading, I also have a little something for you but will post it here after you have received it  :)
