Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you are having a good week.

I had a fabulous day yesterday catching up with two of my lovely DT buddies - Kat and Sue over tea and cake in Cheltenham.

Today I thought I would share the little gifts I made for each of them now that they have been received - and I think they liked them :o)

One in blue:
And of course one in pink:
I used a couple of blank MDF plaques - they measure 15cm x 5cm 
Painted with chalky finish paint and then I used a crackle medium and painted with contrast chalk paint - really should have taken a photo of the reverse that shows the crackle effect - doh!!!

I papered the front side and then added some vintage lace, pearl string and some pretty floral details and of course the fabulous 'Friendship' sentiment - die cut using MFT pierced squares and inked with Distress Ink before taking out of the die to give a soft colour effect but keeping the border white.

Thanks for popping by.
Have a fabulous day.
