A Gift of Love

This weeks challenge over at Try it on Tuesdays is  to Alter a Tin.
Once again our sponsers are the Craft Barn, so pop over, get all the information and see the super altered Tins made by my fellow teamies.
My tin is quite small about 3 x 2 inches and 3/4 inch deep. It is coloured with Wild Plum alcohol ink. The lid is decorated with bits and bobs  from my stash.

You might be wondering why I called this post A Gift of Love.
It relates to a similar gift I recieved  from a friend,, together with this verse.

This is a very special gift
That you can never see,
The reason its so special is
Its just from me to you.
Whenever you are lonely
Or even feeling blue.
You have to hold this little gift
And know I think of you.
You never should unwrap it
Please leave the ribbon tied..
Hold this box close to your heart
Its filled with love inside.

I am sure that this sentiment is one we would all treasure,

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, your comments are always appreciated
