Hello all, wow the shrines were just lovely thank you for taking part in the challenge.
Secondly I would like to say a fond farewell to Florence as she has decided not continue with the Hatters, its been a pleasure crafting with you every week and I wish you all the best for 2013. I am sure we will see her in blogland with her wonderful projects.
This week we have a theme of Winter I must admit to being very busy trying to get ready for the big day (why do we all go so mad) so a quick make from me. I had this wooden snowflake and on the day I picked it up it was snowing so it had to be used.  I painted it a sky blue mixed with a grey to give a snowy sky look. then stamped with snowflakes and heated wow white embossing powder. over the top of all I have painted with a glitter glaze.
I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas as I am taking a break until the new year. Thank you for the support and joining us "The Hatters" also for taking the time to make lovely comments. Hope to see you all back and ready to craft in the new year. Do be sure and check out , Janet and Chrissie lovely projects. They will also be posting next week with a theme so do take a look.  Christmas Hugs Sandra XXX

Shrine to Childhood Innocence

Great Mousetrap projects ladies, it is such a fun item to alter so Thank you for joining in with us. This week we have shrines, another good theme as these can take all sorts of shapes like tins, canvas, boxes or shaped tags your choice really. My shrine is to
"Childhood Innocence"
 I have used a M&S mint tin. It has been painted and distressed outside and in, the inside has a painted corrugated card to give height.  The image (she is so pretty) has been hand stitched to vintage lace and embellished. Inside the lid is old book paper and vintage net and a little butterfly. The lid top has been covered with torn paper, stamped and distressed.  Do be sure and check out , Janet and Chrissie lovely projects. Take care and thanks for joining us. Thank you so much for the lovely comments left on my blog I really appreciate them. Hugs as Always. Sandra XXX

I have already put something in I don't usually do 2 projects but when I got my Craft Stamper on Friday Hels Sheridan has a fabby mixed media canvas that I really wanted to have a go at. Mine is "You Inspire" for a reason its a pressy for a particular person. Thanks for looking. Hugs Sandra X
