Altered jigsaw and new goodies

Hi all,can finally post this now as the birthday girl has gone to bed and will be opening it in the morning......lol
Well this was fun to make and it started out as a picture of a pig!
Used the papermani portabello road papers and multi medium to adhere to the puzzle pieces and cut around with a craft knife and then filed off any edges and inked up around and glued into base

Then i used the papermania urban stamps to decorate and embellishments from my stash
I also added fixings and used a pearl string so it can be hung up but forgot to take a photo.....doh. Must admit was tempted to keep this but know its going to a good home :)
And finally some pics of goodies i acquired today when we went to plymouth to see middle son,raided the craft shop,market and charity shops.

the ribbon just called me..........lol
isnt that die set so cute
fab for mens cards
just waiting to be altered!
 Hope all these pictures havent put you to sleep.....lol
Off to the bristol craft meet tomorrow and am too excited to sleep so off to do some blog hopping,thanks for visiting me,x
