Good Morning All,

Hope everyone is well and keeping warm now the weather has turned colder.  I hope you have a great weekend whatever you have planned.  I seem to have been trying to catch up with everything since Christmas but hopefully this weekend I am going to get some crafting done!!

We have a new challenge starting today over at My Time to Craft and our challenge for this fortnight is:

( so either a tag or a card with a tag on it)

For my tag I used paper from Craftwork Cards and decoupaged the bird house and flowers I added some glitter to the petal edges and pearls to the centres, finished with a bird charm and bow.

Hope to see you joining in with our challenge and take a look at the beautiful tags from the Design Team.

Good Morning and a Happy New Year

Hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year, we had a lovely time with the family.  I also hope you escaped all the flooding.  Boxing Day was very wet here. the river flooded some of the roads in our village and destroyed an old mill building on the bridge which they are now demolishing.  The bridge and road have been damaged so that route out of the village is now closed.

On to my card now. we have a new challenge starting today on My Time to Craft.


Sorry the photo is not very good, I can't get my camera to upload on to my computer so I have had to take it with my phone.
