Lace and Pearls.........

Right, I think I've finally managed to catch up with everyone - luckily, I've pretty much had all day to do it - so you should all have at least one comment from me!! It's official, I'm back!! Pretty please mr. blogger don't go buggering up again cos it really messes with my life!!!!!!!
Anyway, back to the matter in hand! There's a new challenge over at Southern Girls and this time, we want to see 'Lace and Pearls' on your projects (the clue was in the title LOL!) Here's my card:
Yep, it's another Simply Sassy image - I love this one, I'd actually bought it as a print from Krista's etsy store quite a while before it was made into a stamp. I've watercoloured her with distress inks and stamped around the edge of the image with a Tim Holtz stamp. All of the papers are from Girl's Paperie - gawd, these are lush!!! I love them! I've also added some lace and lots of pearls from my stash and some flowers cut with a Magnolia doohickey die. And I think that's about it.
I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
I really hope you like my card and please take part in our challenge - there are lots of great prizes for both International 'players' and people taking part in Aus/NZ (cos that where the challenge is based).
Now before I go, I must just say that people in blogland - especially my friends - really are the best. This morning, in the post, I had the most wonderful package with a beautiful card and some pretty flowers and handmade rosettes for the wonderful (and talented!), Edna. I honestly cannot thank you enough, hun. Love y'all!!!! And also, the other day, I found out that I'd won a piece of custom artwork by none other than Krista Smith herself - who is the unbelievably talented artist of the Simply Sassy girls (and a $20 voucher for her etsy store!) I think it's actually one of the best things that's ever happened to me that I can have myself turned 'Sassy'!!!! You wouldn't believe how excited I am about it all. So - in all, I've had THE best couple of days, which I needed if the truth be told, what with one thing and another that's gone on recently. So thanks to you all, everyone who looks at my blog, everyone who comments and everyone who would like to call themselves a friend. I sincerely love the lot of ya!!!!!!!! Til next time.................xxxxx
