Apothecary Art....

My lovely blogging friend Annie sent me some beautiful lace all the way from Australia, I spotted the lace on one of Annie's cards.
As I wanted to show off the lace I've used one of the stamps from S.U. Apothecary Art set and kept the card simple.
Backing papers are all Stampin Up, corners are from Whimsy Stamps. I just added a few pearls in the centre of the lace one on the corner dies.

Its a beautiful day here down in Somerset and the sun it out.

A set of drawers in my craft room collapsed on Saturday so I have been trying to a sort some of my cupboards and drawers out  and have decided to do at least one a day....like all crafters I have things that I haven't used in years so its time for them to be used or ditched..I have a feeling that charity shop will do well..lOl...lOl. At least I hope to end up with a lot more space in my tiny room...
