True Friendship....

Good morning folks!

I hope you're enjoying your weekend so far? Yesterday hubby and I took the day off to go out with the kids and we ended up at Cadbury World.... I will have a few pictures to show on my next post. I'm not really a chocolate lover but everybody else is.... and we really enjoyed seeing the history and workings of such a big and famous company.

Anyway, I'm here to show you a vintage topper I've made.... in pretty blues and greens this time as I do love this colour combo. I was really pleased with how the flowers turned out... made using DooHickey dies and my own rolled roses. Hopefully you can see tucked behind all the layers that I used Basic Grey Curio papers and the lovely sentiment is Tim Holtz. Everything has been sanded and distressed as always. Oh and I nearly forgot the most important thing.... this stunning image is from an Etsy shop which you can find here.... the quality of these beauties really is something else!

Here are the challenges I'm entering today:

Basic Grey - Anything Goes

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Sweet Stampin' - Anything Goes

Charisma - Anything Goes

Totally Gorjuss - I Remember

Have fun and stay happy ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
