Make do and mend

It was the birthday today of one of my friends at work. She didn't want any fuss and tried to hide her cards so no-one would see them as they came in the office. She didn't try to hide from a carrot cake muffin though!! I didn't have any candles so made a little flag out of a cocktail stick (which I found in the kitchen drawer at work) with a post it note stapled to it. Photo is a bit naff as it was a mobile phone one taken very quickly so she wouldn't notice!!

We didn't really know what to buy her so we settled for a voucher from Next. Unfortunately the vouchers are now cards and don't come in an envelope. Not a problem. I had a spare envelope at home and with the help of my trusty Big Shot I made some flowers to go on the front to make it a little more special and not so plain looking.
It's nice to know that even things that are handmade or just thrown together can still make people smile.
