Hi you all! Here is my tag for 'Deck the Halls' for Tag Tuesday. I found some Graphics 45 paper in my stash with carols on it, so used it for the background. The lovely window cut-out was sent me by a friend, as was the lantern, holly wreath and bow - just in time for this piece! I put a Christmas tree 'inside' the window, so it looks like you are looking in.
The challenge at 'out of a hat' creations this week is to make a shrine. I have used a little tin which was once filled with delicious, mini Lindt chocolates. I did not paint the tin, as I thought it was too pretty to alter. I lined the inside with lace and some beaded flower trim, and added photos of my Mum and me as babies, some flowers and a butterfly. My Mum used to love yellow and lilac flowers, so I have used them here. I decorated the lid with some butterflies and a metal flower which used to be on a brooch of my Mum's. I used some old, lace hankies of my Mum's as a background.
I am still very slow at crafting on account of my shaky fingers, but I am hopeful that sooner or later I will be able to craft without dropping everything I pick up at least 5 times!
Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks for visiting!
