Here's my offering...

I've used Beautiful Ladies from  Nicecrane Designs
My 'Dug Out' stash is the Rose Organza sheet .....I have not used for about 4 years!
The ribbon I've placed on the edge of the Organza I opened for this card after buying it in a craft fayre about 2 years ago!!!!
Didn't I dig deep!!!

 Tip: Recycle & Re-use! The 'jewel' is taken from a hair-grip!

I've had a go at decorating my first pin too!
I added a few beads (I had lying around!), some cheesecloth and then when it was stuck to my card I topped it off with the 'head' from a hair grip!
I was inspired by a very talented lady whose blog I stumbled across last week, unfortunately she has has some terrible news so I feel it insensitive to send you all over to look at her work - I will however send you over soon.

Congrats Ceri :)

Just wanted to share what I was doing this weekend - for those of you not 'friends' with me on FB. Those of you who are I apologise for showing you this again - I know you've already seen loads over the weekend!

As some of you are aware my daughter, Ceri, has been Irish Dancing for about 12 years now and most years we go to Dublin for her to compete in the Irish Open Championships. However we didn't go last year, nor the year before as she was having a break from competing.
So you can imagine how chuffed we were when this weekend she came 2nd!

How proud am I :)
