CCT Monochrome

Well I have eventually managed to get something made for this weeks CCT challenge and the theme is Monochrome. This is a money wallet which I made for a work colleague of my daughters leaving gift. I made a white wallet from a template I found on the internet and then covered it with Maya Designs papers. The inside is also decorated but I forgot to photograph that. The stamp is by Stampendous which I stamped with Distress ink and dragged the colour onto the butterfly with a wet paintbrush. The flowers are Tim Holtz mini tattered florals and the swirl is a Tonic die. I am really pleased with how it turned out and plan on making a few more for Christmas gifts.

We had a lovely weeks holiday in Wales with all my children and partners and most of my hubbys family to celebrate his 50th birthday, in fact we have booked out the whole of the farm cottages again for next year to do it all over again! 
I have also been selling lots of my crafting goodies as I have far too much stuff and nowhere near enough free time to use it. The money raised is helping fund next years holiday to Rome, which is my hubbys birthday present. Still quite a bit to sell but at least I have some space back again.
