upcycled guitar

Hello !I had a small guitar that I wanted to upcycle. I added flowers in lots of colours, large pearl bead and bead chain around the body.I placed a large rose in the centre and added some beautiful AB beads (you cant see them but the sparkle so much when the light catches them.). I added some string to the knobs at the back and placed on the wall. This was good fun but took lots of flowers.Thanks for stopping by .

fall is here

I love the colours around the garden just now. I have some late flowering roses and other flowers and the colours influenced this card.I hand stamped Tilda and coloured her with Noir pens and Derwent pencils. I used Kanban paper (floral) and the dots were from my stash. I added some ribbon around the centre. I distressed the paper edges,I inked some edges with TH distress ink. I handmade the flowers and die cut some leaves. I hand stamped the sentiment . To finish I added a pretty stick pin. Thanks for stopping by it is appreciated.

Just arrived and cant wait to try it out !

I have now used both shampoo and conditioner and I have to say my hair feels so soft. I liked that the scent is not over powering but smells "clean and fresh". There is a real shine to my hair , it looks and feels healthy. (Jean)

Used shampoo and conditioner first time I used this and used the foam the next time. My mid length hair has been dyed and was starting to look dull, Now its sooooo shiney ! I didn't think there was any smell from the shampoo but I did like the smell of the foam and conditioner. Real pleasure to use on my hair. 5 stars ! (Lesley)
