Really Really Red Valentine Altered Tin



I made this little altered tin for another swap on Paper Traders. Gluing down all those micro beads was a pain - LOL! The tin won't close because the nest is too big but I think it looks cute and it should be displayed open anyway... don't you agree?

Hi Becki, Thanks for visiting my giveaway #455 on OWOH this afternoon. I'm not leaving a comment on that post since I don't do counted cross stitch (old eyes and all)and I wouldn't want to take away from someone else's chance to win. I wanted to let you know that I perused your blog and love the art that you do. I'm adding your blog to my Google Reader so I can keep up with your projects. It's nice to meet you in cyberspace.

A darling tin! Thank you for visiting my blog! I already have a bunch of what you have in your drawing, so I decided to comment on this post instead and skip putting my name in for the draw.

So good to meet you!
