Altered Shopping List Hanging...........

Hi, hope you have had a great weekend.  Here in Northamptonshire it was very misty over the weekend and then the sun shone through in the afternoon, which was bliss.  Got myself a new toaster, one that doesn't throw the toast up into the air.......it was hard work with the old one, a bit like playing netball.........lol
On Saturday morning I popped into town to get some fruit and veg from the market and then wandered into QD and found that they had some shopping list hangings reduced to 10p........wow 10p, so went mad and bought two.............lol

(........please excuse the creased front sheet as will whip that off before I give it away)

Products used:  Gesso, dark green acrylic paint, Viva Croco Crackling, Tim Holtz Diecuts, Scraps of cardstock, garden twine and a large Brad.

This is how it was in its original state.  So if you live in the UK go and grab yourself a great bargain.
Thank you for popping in and take care of yourselves, Hugs Annette x
