Feathers and Roses

Good afternoon to you all in the land of blog
Today I have finished my play creation from yesterday, and really enjoyed doing something different.  Matt has gone fishing for the last match of the season, so hope he does well, he came fourth in the last two matches so do hope he can maintain his good spot.  

On that note, I don't think that I would be any good at doing the hand shots on gems tv as on looking back at my tutorial photo's my nails and hands are awful, but thank you for all the lovely comments :) was thrilled you liked my first tutorial.

So what have I created to post today, well I have done many full size bottle dresses in many disguises but for my team at work for Xmas this year, thought I would make some little bottle's.  So here is one of many to come
I made a Marianne Die fancy circle base and then created a panelled surround.  I added ribbon to hold it together at the top, easy access for them all.  I added some burgundy ribbon roses around the base tucked some lovely white feathers around too.  Added another rose and some feathers and a couple of charm bells along with a nestie fancy tag in silver and voilĂ .  Fiddly but oh so worth it.

 I would like to welcome all my new followers and wish you all well in the 500 follower candy.   For those of you that have not yet entered the 500 follower candy you can do so here, and thank Feline for advertising my candy for me.

Totally awesome, you guys are amazing................thank you so much :) 640 followers, if you are already follow me please don't forget to put your name in the hat :)  I am now looking at my next candy, not sure at the moment what I will be going for, will have to see what is new in at Grimsby Crafts :)

As always and very importantly I would like to say thank you to all my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave such inspirational comments on my blog, allowing me to hop back over to see your own beautiful work. THANK YOU!!
