Add some Metal with Crafty Calendar!

Morning friends........hope you're all well!
Another cold, damp & dreary day here on the Yorkshire Coast so don't
 think I'll be venturing out........I think maybe a nice, lazy craft-ernoon
 is called for.....once Miss Rebecca gets herself out of bed, that is!
So today being the st Saturday of the month means a new challenge at
where the theme this time is ADD SOME METAL!
Our sponsor this month is our lovely Kimberley who is offering a gift
certificate to any online store!!! 
I made a book cover this time......this is for my son Cam & so 
embellishments had to be kept to a minimum lol. My added metal is the
little cameo & was gonna be the rings I ordered to hold the book pages
 together only they didn't arrive in time!!
Rightio, that's me for to do a few jobs before craft 
time....thanks for calling!

I have candy HERE
