NICECRANE DESIGNS....

Hi Everyone,

I am so sorry I have not visited much this week but boy I've been sooooo tired coming home from work , shower then bed.. I was just feeling mentally & physically drained by it all.. Anyway enough of me!! I'm feeling better now or maybe it's got something to do with I have 4 days off coming up over Easter... so lots of Family & crafty time yipee!!!

Today I have made a tag using one the fabulous images from NiceCrane Designs...& this is a first for me I coloured it with Distress inks... normally use promarkers... I think I need some more practice but I really enjoyed it...




I hope you like it!! Pop over to NICECRANE DESIGNS & have a look around at the wonderful images!!! click HERE... Thank you so much for your visit...Keep warm & safe!  Hugs May x x x x

Sounds like you need a break May, I don't think this lousy weather helps either, some sun would life everyone's spirits.
