Happy Birthday Janette

I made this present for my friend Janette who lives in Blackpool...then came the problem!
I could not post it lol..... so yesterday, Aunty Sue, Mum and I made a flying visit,( Mum cannot climb stairs to visit the loo, so just a cup of coffee and home) the weather was murky with rain and temps down to freezing, snow forecast.... but needs must!

I bought this jug from the charity shop for £1.50p

I then covered it all with decopatch, my first attempt at this

When it was dry I varnished it to seal it
I also covered a wooden heart to match
I made a lace flower tied on with fibres here

I made a tag in matching colours here

I went to the garden centre and bought a primula in the same cerise colour and planted it in the jug


I hope Janette is pleased with the finished result, the flower can go in her garden after her birthday and the jug can be used on her desk for bits and bobs!

Well, the snow never arrived last night, but I am not complaining--- it is very cold again today, thank you for popping by and the comments you leave are appreciated. Keep warm and here comes the week-end!

I am entering the following challenges;

Craft us crazy ------- Anything goes

Do you stack up -------- Love

Celebrate the Occasion --------- Anything goes birthday

Cutie pie challenge -------- Anything but a card

Karber Challenge -------- Anything but a card

Hugs Tilly x
