Cake NecklaceA good friend who had moved away many years ago had her birthday this month. I made her one of my cards (Yes, I’m still stuck on the same Tim Holtz technique I learned back in August!) and an anchor necklace with some California sand in it.

Cake Necklace I love this birthday cake stamp, but I think I’m going to have to invest in another set or two if I am going to keep sending out birthday cards. Do people want to get the same birthday cake card, albeit with different colors, from me every single year? Probably not.

Cake NecklaceMy sister purchased these cute little glass anchor vials and let me play with a couple of them. I thought it was perfect to hold some California sand in it for my friend, who no longer lives in California. Just a little bit of home away from home!
Cake NecklaceHere is a photo of the anchor with a quarter for size reference–I love how delicate and small it is!
