A Bracelet and Coming Up Crafts Cards

A Bracelet
So I made myself something! I received these sterling silver bangles from Bali for store inventory. One of the balls screws off for adding beads and whatever else. However 2 of them had slightly dented balls. So I decided to keep them for myself! Of course this was months ago and only now did I get a chance to do something with one.
This was so simple. I used a yarn leftover from my attempting to knit days and wrapped that around the bangle. Then I wrapped solid copper over the yarn. It's a little messy on the ends but I sort of like that. So cute!

Coming Up Crafts
More card shopping. These are from Coming Up Crafts on Etsy. A birthday card.
A beautiful bridal shower card.
A perfect unisex wedding card. I love that it is blue since the wedding I am attending is New England Patriots themed. 
This shop has so many great cards like this Halloween card.
 Adorable baby cards.
Thank you cards.
Thinking of you cards.
Note card sets.
That was just a sampling of Coming up Crafts. This is a great shop to visit for your next card purchase.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you are all enjoying this September weather. Although we had a day that was almost 100 degrees last week, we now have changing leaves and even some that have already fallen to the ground!

Enjoy your week. ~Val
