A rose by any other name. - for Country View Crafts

Well it has been a very , very long while since I made things for pleasure and also since I blogged...other than the odd take on Tim's gorgeous tags which has been few and far between....

It has also been a long while since I did any posts for the lovely Susan , over at Country View Crafts..but she is allowing me to pop in a post , as and when .... so thank you Susan ...and here is a taste of my first .... using the gorgeous Lady Rose stamps from my crafty inspiration... Tim Holtz.

I love these stamps, the gentleness and almost french perfumeries elegance ...well to me anyway?

You know me, love all things neutral...so I have stayed really neutral here ... even for me!

here are a few close ups of some of the details ...

and one more...

If you would like to see all the details of how I created this Lady Rose gift box....please hop here ...to be transported over to the Country View Crafts shop blog....which will have links to all the products I have used and details of how I created this piece.

Thanks to everyone for your lovely kind comments, on my very slow re-entering into blogland....which will be sporadic but its good to be back!

keep those fingers inky...and painty
and those hearts full xx
