Good morning my lovely crafty friends.

Ooopps I am a day late with my DT share for the new challenge over at 

but as they say 'better late than never'!!!!

Seriously though - huge apologies (again) to my DT buddies and my lovely followers - life is just sooooooo busy at the moment but there is light at the end of the tunnel with lots being crossed off the mahoooosive 'To Do' list.

So as it's the last Tuesday Wednesday of the month that means we have our fabulous theme of


So lots of options:
Sketch #103 or any other PTW sketch
Colour Theme: Blue or Green (or both)
Technique Theme: Use or make a tag
Product Theme: Use Lace either real or punched, die etc

I went for sketch #103, lace and made a tag and here's what I came up with:

Card Ingredients:
Design Papers: LOTV 'Romance and Roses'
Lace and Ribbon from stash
Large Pearl Medallion from the Hobby House 
Embossalicious Regency Swirl Embossing Folder

A beautiful card Debs, such pretty papers and lovely pastel colours.
You will make it rain with all this painting, it's not exactly July weather down here but at least it's dry (fingers crossed and touching wood)!

Ha ha, I can't imagine you not being super busy! I'm sure you enjoyed your guest on Saturday although not much room left for you in that bed now!

It was worth the wait for your card...such a gorgeously pretty design and I love how you popped the sentiment on a tag :-)
