Friendship Blog Hop

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Follower and Visitors

Today my blogging and Facebook friends are taking part in a Friendship blog hop for our very dear friend Lisa who has been poorly for a few months.

We all hope you will take part in this hop and leave some get well wishes and love on her blog!

I was very lucky to meet this beautiful lady last November at the NEC. We have been friends for a couple of years so it was a great joy to finally meet her in person.

This is what I have made for Lisa and I hope she likes it as it was made with love!


I have altered an MDF Heart with Graphic 45 Botanical Tea, I added her name the letter have been distressed with Victorian Velvet, added feather, butterfly stem, birdcage and bird.


I have stencilled leaves with diamond sparkle medium.


Also stencilled a teacup with a bird on the handle with diamond Sparkle Medium.

The sentiment reads "Friends are the gifts you give yourself" and Lisa most certainly is one gift that I will treasure!

Here is a list of the ladies who are taking part with their blog addresses.


Many thanks for stopping by Today
If you haven't got the time to do the blog hop, 
please just visit Lisa's blog and leave her some love!
