Gilded lily

Hello there, I'm currently watching The great British bake off while typing this post.... I love that show. I don't watch hardly any TV but make an exception for this every week. 
This week my latest project for Jones crafts went up on their Facebook page. It's a Tim holtz clock transformed with gilded lily........

Such a pain to do but love the finished result. The photos really don't do it justice. I love these papers so much.
Hope you like it.
The week has been really nice been crafting and doing plenty of cooking making homemade soups and cakes. Really don't want to go to back to work next week !! Off to Nottingham with my lovely crafty friend Sue who owns crafty bunch on Saturday. It's a Fran Moreland who's on the prima Design team so looking forward to that. Anyway time to go , hope all my lovely crafty friends are well, take care xx
