Goodbye for Now


I made this for Hel's challenge but, while I don't mind adding a quick link, instructions about putting stuff in the sidebar etc just feels like too much effort, so I didn't actually enter. However, the challenge was to include gold, and as you can see it's there! This is made using a small wooden frame about 5" tall - they were only 99p per pack and are meant for children to decorate (!) with felt tips etc and I bought them in packs of four and threw away the cheapie felt tips. That left me with nice wooden frame shapes for altering, how's that for thrifty crafting?

I coloured the background with Distress Inks then stamped over it and added the gold bits. The sentiment is also a stamp and a message I rather like ... so this will find a home somewhere in my studio, unless I decide to give it to a friend.

Won't be posting for a couple of weeks because we're off on holiday tomorrow, ash clouds permitting .....

Hi Rosie, This frame is lovely and the sentiment/quote is a good one indeed. I hope you enjoy your holiday and your health keps good for you while you are away. I'[m down with Bronchial asthma. This sh*t has really got me down this year. I'm on round 4 of anti-biotics and prednisone. Did you ever get my last magazines? I sent 2 in one envelope. Again,m enjoy your holiday...

Will miss you for Tea Tuesday and WOYWW 50. Hope you have a great holiday and not bothered by the environment.

I love the frame you made. Much like you, I have trouble with challenges (and giveaways for that matter) that require all kinds of hoops and such that must be followed. Sidebar links, becoming a follower, and the like are just not worth the fuss.

Again, I hope you have a great trip, and hope to see you in a couple of weeks. Whether you are here or not, I'll have a cup of Tea Tuesday for you.
