A Gift Set for Mum

Morning everyone, here is my second post as promised, are you having a good weekend so far. I do hope so. I would like to share my DT project with your for this weeks challenge over at
The Crafty Pad. As you can see I've been doing a bit of recycling. I've used an empty cheese triangle box to decorate. I used sandpaper on it and distressed it to get rid of the outer colours. My poor dear Husband is terrified to throw anything out just now, every now and then he pops his head round the corner to ask if he can throw this or that away.

This weeks challenge is "CHARM" make a project for your Mum/Friend and include at least one charm in your creation. My little heart charm is hanging from the ribbon above the pearls. A nice easy spec this week, and in case you've forgotten Mother Day is next Sunday the 14th March.

I used the Butterfly and verse digital image from the Crafty Pad, the words are fantastic and those butterfly's were a joy to colour and glitter, there is a sprinkling of glitter on them but the camera is not picking it up very well. Do pop over and see the creations my Friends on the DT have for you. They are beautiful.

Thanks again to the following challenge blogs who gave me the ideas for creating the above.
