HNY......It's Ffffriday, and the first one of 2015 how about sharing an oldie?

Good afternoon all, I don't think I have done any crafting for over a week now.  I've been just chilling and trying to get rid of this cold.  You'll be glad to hear that it finally seems to be easing, I might just have broke it's back!

Today I have been taking down all the Christmas decorations and getting everything back to normal before next week.
I'm in early doors at work again tomorrow and plan a relaxing day Sunday before everything gets back to normal on Monday, school and work wise.
That's all the celebrations over with now, I nearly forgot,
HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!
I hope you had a good one?
We had a couple of good friends and families over for food and games, all last
It saw me dashing to work New Years eve to stock up on goodies and get my planning head on.
I think it all went very well and I didn't hit my bed until well after 3 am!
Certainly not my usual New Years eve, a visit to the Cairn at midnight to see in the New year then back up to the house for more games and booze!
We were then out to my best friends for tea on New Years day but I'm afraid I was a bit of a wet lettuce.
All this late night partying, I'm just not used to it.  We still had a good night with lovely food, fun games and giggles.

Enough of my waffling and lets get back to having a little crafty fun, sharing an old project.
It can be anything that you have made over the years.  I have been told I am enthusiastic about all things crafty and would like to share "the love!"
If you do join me, do remember to leave a comment after this post, that way I can connect back with you and see your work too.  Guess I'm nosey too!
Today I have a canvas for you, just a wee one.

The framed canvas was purchased from my "local craft shop for local people!"  Actually it is also the home of Sugar Nellie stamps but is known locally as Papercraft's Boutique.
I have used teal acrylic paint on the frame then Ranger distress crackle paint Picket fence. 
I also sanded it a wee bit as I wanted it to look really old and distressed, then I inked lightly with Distress ink Vintage photo and sealed with Inkssentials Glue 'n' Seal.
On the canvas I covered with Distress stain Broken china then edged with Vintage photo too.
The papers I have used as mentioned in earlier posts are from My Mind's eye Stella and Rose range.
The stamps are Hero Arts Whimsical House and Finding joy.
I have also used some Ranger glossy accents to finish.

It would be lovely to hear from you too.
It only remains for me to wish you all the very best for 2015, may it bring you much joy and happiness.
Thanks for all your support in 2014, I really do appreciate your visits and comments.  Here's to sharing more crafty ideas in 2015, may we all find time to play!  x
