New Hat

Good afternoon dear friends - and what a glorious afternoon it is too!  There is a quote which is very suitable - "No Winter lasts forever, No Spring skips it turn" by Hal Borland.  It might be very late in coming but let's hope it is here to stay and not just a fleeting visit.

I would like to say thank you for all the kind thoughts you sent my way yesterday. Funerals are never pleasant but it was a very fitting tribute to a very lovely lady who will never be forgotten

My Card

      Sentiment on pull out tab

I have used an LOTV topper and the backing papers are Papermania Lincoln Linen, which I really love. The corner dies are Cuttlebug and are just called Vintage. The pull out tab is one of the SB Damask Accents. I need to reposition the pearl because I applied it before I had decided which sentiment I would use. The pearl needs to go into the sun I think.  Don't we all!! The pearls are from my stash. You know I really must check my Cuttlebug stuff more often because there are some pretty dies in there.

Well that's it from me. Hope you all have a great weekend. 

Love and hugs from Christine xx
