A Floral Bouquet on this Xmas Bottle

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
an update on the ironing, had to have a clear out in the wardrobes :) to gain some more coat hangers (what a shame) doing an hour each night, should be clear by the time the Xmas tree needs to go up.  Was a little disheartened that nobody offered you know but c'est la vie :)

Before hitting the board last night I managed to create this little number, as you can imagine, the more I make of these bottles for my colleagues the quicker I am getting, this one took less than an hour and that was start to finish, not bad going and 7 more to do :(

I really should not have such daft ideas you know. Had to order some more pinflair and flowers :) what a fabulous excuse................not that we crafters need an excuse :)

Any way here it is 
This time again the papers are slightly vintage and the gold ribbon on this one is wrapped and swirled around to the back.  The flowers go all the way around.  The die's are nesties the base is a Marianne fancy circle die and all the flowers have been air brushed with R59, in the main these are from Wild Orchid.  I have over sprayed with gold glitter lacquer for the Xmas feel.  

Now if you have not noticed, although I am sure you have my new 600 follower candy has been posted and you can enter this here . I would like to welcome all my new followers  and wish all my followers luck in the 600 follower candy.   Just have to say you are all awesome thrilled to be over the 700 mark and looking forward to more candy buying:)

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!!
