Good afternoon friends and bloggers out there!  Today is the start of another challenge from OSAAT and our theme this fortnight is Anything Goes with Appreciation.    There are quite a few things that I'm thankful for at the moment but I am not going to waffle on about them .. so be grateful for that!!!!

I've been buying loads of lace, ribbon and pearls etc from Brenda's Lace and Ribbon Specials and after stroking them for aaaages I actually have been using them!!  This lace is absolutely the bees knees and once in place on a card you don't need a lot more!!!

 I'm showing you the inside because of the little pearl ribbon slider but I will add a sentiment, probably on a Spellbinder Label die, before I post it.

Once again I hope you can join in with our challenge this fortnight, you could win the following prize.

  8. My goodness girl...this is beautiful! You are right about this is a stunner and finishes your card off perfectly.

    Sorry I have been a poor blog buddy...we downsized and moved just a few doors away from the grandkids. Son in law found the house as they were pounding the for sale sign in the front garden.. They are on another street but just a few doors away. They pass our house on the way to and from school so stop by often!
    We have been having great fun babysitting while daughter and son in law run errands or have a date night. Perfection!

    Off to have a wee catch up!
