Almost Christmas....

Hello to all my lovely followers. Sorry the posts have been somewhat erratic and slow. It's been a real difficult few weeks for me and I feel I'm only just sorting myself out. Sadly on 9th of December (also my 41st birthday) we said goodbye to the most amazing brave lady. My lovely friend Rachel. So my heart has not really been into crafting but I did spend a bit of time in my craft room the other day. Here's what I did... 

I wrapped up hubbys aftershave with some graphic 45 papers and covered an MDF tag. The collection used was St Nicholas. Thank you to Darren Saxton at Jones crafts for sending me these wonderful Papers. 
Well must dash having a new colour put in my hair and a cut at the hairdressers today. I fancied a change lol.
Take care friends and big hugs. 
Love Elaine xxxx
