Who's Room?

Hi Folks
Sorry I have not been around much the last two or three days.  My sister, brother-in-law and nephews have been to stay with us this weekend.  It has been lovely to see them and we drank and ate far too much.  The weather has been lovely today and it was so nice to be able to sit outside in the garden with a glass of wine and good company.  Hopefully, I will get round to visiting your lovely blogs in the next couple of days.

Tonight I thought I would share a little wall hanging that I made a little while ago using Imagination Crafts products. 

I used one of the MDF Frame and Charm sets.  I used acrylic paint and crackle glaze on the frame itself.  When it was dry I used the Leaf Swirl border stencil and sparkle medium.  Whilst this was drying I took the MDF butterflies from the frame set and coloured them using mica powders over versamark.  I added some lettering, a bow, some gems and a little wire flower that I had in my stash.  

I was really pleased with the way it came out and it now has pride of place in my craft room.  Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.

I haven't forgotten about my blog candy and will post the winners tomorrow evening.
