I have had a very busy week so far and today I am planning on chilling.

No crafting today just catching up on a lot of admin and then going to see Beauty and the Beast!

I am in an ATC swap group on Facebook and the theme was hats.

I got out my Tim Holtz crazy cats and birds along with the accompanying crazy things stamps.


For the background on this ATC I have used Distress Ink spun sugar, milled lavender and seedless preserves. Stamped the bird and hat coloured with Distress Markers and cut out. I then added the words stickers to make Hats.
