I noticed my ribbon was fraying, so I tided it up a little although I think I liked it looking a bit rough! It also started out being cream coloured.. I dyed it with Tim Holtz distress inks to make it match better with my paint, I do suggest you use gloves for this as it took a couple of days for the dye on my hands to disappear lol!!
My little butterfly started it's life out as silver I have painted it and given it the Treasure Gold treatment .. I love this stuff and put it on everything these days lol!!, I also used Treasure Gold around the edges of the tag..

It would be lovely if you could join in this week, also do take a peek at what my lovely teamies have made, they are always coming up with wonderful ideas...
Just wanted to say also that I won't be around for a few weeks, as my son and family are coming from Germany for two weeks. We are so looking forward to seeing them all as Christmas was the last time we saw them, I can't believe that our little granddaughter Annelie is almost a year old and Liam is 8 Then David and I want to take a couple of weeks for ourselves, we need some time out to catch up with ourselves, if you know what I mean lol!! We always seem to be rushing all the time and not really achieving what we want, so we are both getting stressed lol!! My Mum isn't in the best of health at the minute either.
I would just like to say a big 'Thank You' to all you lovely ladies that leave me beautiful comments, I really appreciate the time you take to come and visit, as I know life can be pretty hectic at times for all of us.. you all take care... see you in a few weeks xx
Love and Hugs,
