Well its back to normal land again now my hols is over, went so quickly but luckily enough I managed to buy some crafting bits and pieces while I was away so I could alter this hat.
I purchased a coachman hat from a steampunk/goth shop, removed the feathers but left the thick black ribbon and pearl bobbin pin, added some deep purple ribbon with a silver square ribbon slider which I glued on some deep purple gems, added some purple feathers with clear crystal gem stone bobbin pins and two purple bobbin pins. I am not sure if I should put a couple of metal charms on the other side of the hat yet but need to add a little padding inside the hat as even though its small its still slightly too big for me.
Well thats it for me today folks, I do hope that you all had a great Bank Holiday and until next time, do take care and happy crafting, lol

Hope this finds you all well, sorry have not much to show you but do have a lot of cards started, had hoped to get a few finished but really have not been myself since last week. Poorly tooth and gum, just what I needed as I am due for my usual 2 weeks break but was lucky to get an emergency dental appointment, mind you am £48 pounds lighter really lucky though that it was just a filling which had broken way from the inside of the tooth, all fixed now just rather sore now.
This card was a bit of a rush job as I thought I had made a couple of anniversary cards for me and hubbie as its next week - our 14th, but when I looked I only had one, ooooppps not good!
I have used white card stock to make the square card, Desert Blooms patterned papers x 2, Coredinations French Roast card stock, Coredinations Vanilla Cream card stock, Spectrum Noir Pens numbers 132, 133, 142, 196, 104, 100, 96, 0, 175, 11, 169, 35, 33, 24, Lace, Pearls, Gem Stones, Flowers, Sentiments, Cuttlebug, Spellbinders Shapes/Nestabilites, Embossing Folder Hearts and of course the lovely romantic rubber stamped image from Crafts and Me called Please Don't Let It Fly.
Well thats it for me folks until after the Bank Hols, I will have a couple of items auto posted 1 per week as I will not be doing any challenges now until I come back and they are just something a little bit more special with my goth/steampunk attitude of late.
Do take care and have a wonderful Bank Holiday, lol
