oooohhhh I love a bit of recycling...

Good morning everyone how are you all doing?...well my wonderful Dads glasses are sorted and he looks so handsome in his new ones...we even managed a coffee and panini in a local cafe too...it was so warm and sunny yesterday and we sat in the window, it was like being on holiday, well that was until I caught my reflection in the window...omg I need a haircut I look like a busted sofa and that's no exaggeration I promise you...even my Dad keeps saying when you getting your hair cut woman lol...so will ring up today and get an appointment, anything to stop him nagging me lol, lets hope I have more luck with a hair appointment than the Docs, thanks for all the wonderful giggles you gave me with your comments yesterday I enjoyed them all so much...I'm having a clearing day today...well that's the plan anyway but you know what Im like when I head to my craft room to clear up, I'm so easily distracted aren't I...right now onto my card for today which is for the digi teams brand new challenge at Crafts & Me challenge...this weeks challenge is Lace, I used the amazingly beautiful Sara Burrier digi stamp Porcini, isn't she stunning, I coloured her with distress inks and used some Echo Park Be mine collection, this paper is called Love Letters and the deep pink is the reverse...do you see my bit of recycling?...its the lace half circle behind the image its from the Prima flower packaging and was too gorgeous to waste so I cut it out and used it...I also used black lace along the bottom and cut out two leaves for the rose from it too...what do you think is there enough lace lol...the fab sketch is from The Sweet Stop challenge and I'm also entering this for the Digital Tuesday challenge too...well I managed to catch up with a few of you yesterday and will catch up some more tonight...have a wonderful sunny day wherever you are

What a beautiful card Mina, as always and I love your 'bit of recycling'. The image is gorgeous but when I see her name 'Porcini' I can't help thinking of pigs and lovely succulent pork chops. Oh dear I am drooling again now :o)
