Wake me up on the 24th !

Good evening to all my lovely followers, so sorry for the lack of posts but it's going crazy at work I'm either starting at 3.30am or doing late shift until 10pm there has literally been no time to craft. However I do have my last bit of luxury time off for 4 days. Then it will be almost non stop until I finish on Christmas Eve !!
So I did not waste my 1st day off , me and 2 lovely ladies went to a craft show at the motorcycle museum in Birmingham. We had a great morning. When I got back I cleaned all of the upstairs so I could craft this evening. And of course look at my new purchases.......

So what have I made ????
Well nothing yet with my new purchases but I stumbled across these tim Holtz trees I had about 12 months ago. So I decided to colour them up with my spray inks. Here's how they turned out....

Just got to decorate them now...... 
Well hope everyone Is having fun in the build up to Christmas. Thanks so much for stopping by I really do love reading the comments. Take care friends xxxx
