Take time to smell the Roses!

I've been mostly out and about this week taking photo's in my local area. I forgot just how gorgeous the countryside is here in the North of England. It's been threatening to rain a few times and the storm clouds make great pictures. 

For Creative Expressions this week I've made this lovely heart wall hanging. 
I've used the roses stamp and the flourish stamp from the Floral Silhouette stamp set.


It's difficult to see very well in this pic but I've also used some Cosmic Shimmer Cast Bronze gilding wax too around the edge. Gilding wax is all the rage at the minute and I love the finish it gives.

I've not been blogging much lately, so sorry about that. I think I did more blog posts when I was working! Now that I am not working I seem to be busier than ever. Job hunting is very time consuming you know.
I've still been crafting a lot though, but my projects are for teaching.
I'll share them on the blog soon though :)

Have a wonderful sunny week, I'll be watching a bit of tennis, tending to my veggie patch and my greenhouse tomatoes and doing lots of craftyness xx

The quote on your wall hanging is so true, and we (I) don't do it often enough! Love the shading of the colours.
