Good Afternoon Readers,

How are you all ........ well hasn't the weather changed ..... here in my little corner of Cornwall, it has been rather chilly and windy, great for drying the washing ....... well have not blogged in a few day's, what with work an all,  So I would like to take this opportunity , to welcome my new followers , thank you for taking the time to join my blogg, please pop back from time to time..... well, up the yard today to see my boy, gave him a nice groom, and then lunged him in the school, he looked beautiful ...... his coat was looking lovely, and he is going darker , he resembles the Lloyd's TSB Horse, as in the winter his coat goes a darker black ....... I must admit he looked rather magnificent...... even if I do say so myself ...... so once I had finished up at the yard, I decided to pop in to my favorite haunt at the mo, PANTS, it's three industrial units, filled to the brim with second hand items, the charity is for Cervical Cancer and Prostrate Cancer, hence Pants, because of the area ......... what's great about it is, that it is not in the middle of town it's on the outskirt's so there is plenty of parking right outside, so I had a good old rummage , and guess what I found a pair of riding boots , Mountain Horse Brand,  in very good condition , and even better still they were my size yipee ...... so of course they had to come home with me ...... and they were only £2.00 ......... I do love looking in Charity shops to see if I can grab a bargain, but I tend to only look in the one's that support Cancer Research , and the Animal Hospital Charities, so on the return home I gave them a clean, and they good as new, I know what I will be wearing up the yard in the morning ....... well I have managed to do a bit of crafting this afternoon...... and joined in with the fun over on  Winter Wonderland   but I think I may need professional help ...... as I am addicted to distressing ........ I cannot seem to get away from it at the mo, so below is my rather distressed looking tag.........

Winter Wonderland

Recipe for my Design,
5½ Tag cut in White Card Stock using my Cricut Machine
Distressed using Tim Holtz, Black Soot, Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade and Tettered Rose Distress Inks,
Holly Stamp by Papermania
Blooms cut using my E-Craft Machine, then distressed in the same ink tones as the tag, once distressed, I stamped the Holly on to them and screwed them up in to a little ball, to give an aged crinkled look.
The Gems used are all Plain Crystal, and I have shaded them to match my colour scheme using Spectrum Noir Pens 
Wide Gold Ribbon tied in a Bow
