Hi All and Happy Weekend to you. Thank you for dropping in and hope you like what you see here today. I am looking forward to watching the rugby matches this weekend and hope that you have something nice planned.

At Country View Crafts the theme for March is Industrial

I used a mop up page for the background and added grey to make it fit the project. I used aluminium tape stuck on pieces of card and ran them through the Cuttlebug with various folders. They were then stuck together to make a shape. Next some bits and bobs were added and I sprayed the middle' construction' with Silver paint. Last thing was to smudge it with black Distressed ink.

This is the quote I added.

Thought I would show you a few photographs taken in Sewerby Park a couple of days ago. We had really gone to visit MIL in the Care Home but no one could go in or out as it was closed due to the Norovirus. A bit sad, we decided to keep walking along the cliff top and go to see our favourite trees in Sewerby Park. The textures were wonderful with the rain highlighting the bark and roots

Enjoy your day

Love Chrissie xx
