Hi there friends
Hope you are all well. It's been getting chilly down in the shed. Will soon be time to dig out the heater I think.  Not that I've had too much time down there recently as I've been having to spend a lot more time on the pay the bills job recently and I've been busy with bits and pieces that are taking longer than I thought so not finished.  But I have a few things to share, wouldn't want you to think I've dropped off the planet you know!
Firstly, I've received an amazing altered tin from a recent swap.

I received this from the fabulously talented Zuzu. Gorgeous colours and textures abound. Click on the link to pop on over to her blog to see more of her work HERE.

On Monday my friend Mark gave me these fab ATC's.

 I just love the textures on this one and am thrilled to have this in my collection!
 This is brilliant too. It was difficult to photograph due to the glossy finish but there are gorgeous layers and this is a very special and thoughtful ATC that I love.
This last one has layers of vintage aging, all done with paints and glazes.  It also uses one of my favourite images too. If you have not seen Mark's work before, you are missing out. He does wonderful work. Pop on over to his blog HERE.

Lastly, over at The Craft Barn today I've a post, this week is fast and furious week; I've created a batch of Christmas cards in 10 minutes so I'd love you to pop on over and take a closer look HERE.

Hope you all have a good and creative evening.
