Boys and their toys.

Well what the  most glorious few days we have had here in the uk :) Wish it could be like this forever. I seem to get loads done when the weather is nice.

 The lovely Denise chose this weeks topic over at Cupcake Crafts 'Boys and Their Toys. We are being sponsored by

Crafty Emma's Store
Prize; £10 Gift Voucher

I chose to use a lili of the valley stamped image. I coloured it with copics then  cut a star on my cuttlebug , painted it with TH picket fence crackle paint and glossed it up with glossy accents . I then used peel offs for the sentiment. I finished it all by using a generous amount of button twine from The Ribbon Girl.
