'M' is for Mia

Evening All, have you all had a fab week-end, mines been a funny one really, people in and out all the time, no time for forward to tonights telly though, second part of Appropriate good don't you think...

Here is the 'M' I promised to share with you....took alittle longer to get here than expected, but done....

Same as before, painted with acrylic,flowers are cut from a doily, coloured with promarkers in the center,some glitter at the edges and a pearl in the middle, I stamped the whole letter with my little favourite design, it never did have a name on and cost about 50p, use it all the time, and alittle crown that I have from a win.The crown is a free download which I printed smaller and cut out, covered with glossy accents,glitter and a few gems from stash,Butterfly is from stash, bunting I made as usual and crochet cotton I ran the ends through clear glue and wound round a fine pencil till dry to keep the curly effect.
the word love is a die cut from the garden center, I got about five all bunched together for good is that, anyway, gave it the paint, gloss and glitter treatment....
Think that about covers it, Mia was very pleased with it so it's all good.....hope you have a nice evening, and if your in the path of the predicted weather front we are expecting over the next day or so, take care, have spent the day moving anything that could take flight,and a friend of mine has even cut her prize Daisy's....well as you know to get hit by a flying Daisy would be my friend, how could I resist...I am waiting for the flak I will get for that
Take care everyone hugs Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
