Paris, Diamantes, Roses and Pink!!!

A productive week interspersed with some lovely long dog walks, when blue skies and dry although cold was the forecast. Not good on these dark, wet and dismal days. I do not like it very hot but love to see blue sky and the happy face of the sun. Energises me to do so much more. 

Lee even managed to do a high cut on the back lawn, which atm still resembles a meadow.
Tete A Tete, Crocus, Snowdrops are appearing along with 2 flowers on the Magnolia, the others have decided not to be so adventurous.

Makes this week. In a sort of clear up found 2 wood letter racks, not sure how long have had them but a fair few years and never done anything with them. Well this was the week, paint and Mod Podge to hand, foam brushes, Paris papers, roses and lace. Not forgetting the faux silk ribbon and Eiffel tower charm. Really happy with how they turned out.

Not wanting to waste any of the paper covered these new tobacco tins, again found in a box and think been around as long in my workroom as the letter racks. Adding pearls and diamantes. 

Now what to put in them as seems a waste of a pretty tin to leave empty? Tags off course a digital download again with pearls, roses and diamantes, finished off with the pink faux silk ribbon.

Also could not resist these Anna Griffin prints to cut out and make into cards (old stock again). Using kraft card blanks with matching envelops (love kraft card so vintage) stitched on some vintage style lace, another digital download. The birds and flowers took some cutting out detail but with my Pergamano scissors could not be better.

That's all for this week folks, will be participating with Workbench Wednesday with the Professional Crafters Guild on Facebook this week, plus getting ready for the CraftFest event on the 26th.
