Wow ! that week went quick .
firstly I would like to say a really big thank you for all your lovely well wishes last week I am sure they perked me up no end .

Secondly I have been a really lucky girl and won two blog candy stashes this week so didn't miss not going to AP now plus won £2.50 on the lottery now that doesn't happen to me much in my life so I really appreciate it :o)

Right now this little project on my table is a small mirror I made for lovely My Sister in law last month when she had a special birthday party ,
She is a very talented lady and had made a quilt for courses she does so I wanted to make something to go with it as I new she was going to keep the quilt for herself .
Having not yet seen the quilt I had to only to go by how she described it before making it
well when I saw the quilt I couldn't have matched it more perfectly .

It is just a plain wooden mirror which I stain with the distress stain Broken China then dabbed Lumiere's on it peacock type colors sorry I forgot which ones and I cant get them down to look at the moment .
Made some grunge paper Flowers with Tim Holtz dies Tattered Florals these were stained and lightly dusted with perfect pearls plus the crown and wings are Tim Hotlz Grunge dot elements they were also covered with broken china an given a light dusting with perfect pearls .

Thank you for passing by if you would like to see more desks this week then visit the lovely Julia Dunnit to see loads more

Have a nice day xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I am in the process of altering some small square Ikea mirrors at the moment so definitely feel on the same wavelength as you! Hop over to my blog and have a look. How's your ankle? It's obviously not stopping you being creative! Keep up the good work.
