Another hanging from me today. This time made with our New Challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers in mind. . Lin who is hosting this challenge wants us to be inspired by a song she heard sung byJim Croce.
She has written it up, the words are lovely
Please pop over for all the details and see what we have all been making.
Also see the lovely goodies our sponsors are offering this time.
This is our last challenge for this year, we will be back on 7th. January.

The song is called 'Time in a bottle'.
I chose the 4th verse as my inspiration

'If I had a box for  just wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory of how they were answered by you'.

I coloured a small wooden  plaque with cream acrylics, also the wooden leaves. The base was stamped with a variety of stamps before adding more colour, mainly distress inks and cosmic shimmer paint.
The tickets are Stampers Anonymous
The top one says-
Sometimes fate and  your dreams can collide.
Another says-
A dream is a wish your heart makes.

The letters are die cut from the Alterations Vintage Market alphabet strip.
For added texture I used Frantage powder.
Other items are from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by I realy appreciate your comments.
