Hey Craft fans .... I thought I would post a pic of a Christmas card I made yesterday I enjoyed using Tim Holtz glasine paper, distress ink, glitter spray, and a beautiful image from the Graphic Fairy..... I loved the way it turned out. Please let me know what you think, I have thick skin ha ha ha.  So I look forward to an honest critique.
Happy Crafting.

Completed Meander Books Photos

Well as promised the photos of the completed Meander Books, I really hope the shop (Serendipity ) likes them, there is so much work that goes into them ... Still I think it was a worth while project as it has got me motivated into finishing a few projects that I have started and awaiting completion .. So as I always say watch this space.

 Please feel free to comment .. XX

Photos coming ...

Hi Crafters, well the meander books are very near completion AT LAST ! Phew, with work and trying to get this project finished has been a nightmare. Well I am sure I said there would be some photos of the completion of the books and by tomorrow i will have them up on my blog ... One of the biggest tasks has been ageing them as the lady who wants them for her shop needs them to have the vintage look. Also all the tags and cinema tickets have had to have the same treatment, I am sure all you crafters out there know exactly what I am on about. So until tomorrow have a good evening. :o)
