Recycled....

Recycled cards some times come in very handy and this image of the crossed hands I kept from one of my daughters wedding cards a long long time ago.
It not a brilliant picture as I've used holographic silver card which the camera doesn't like.
For the backing I've used some 12 x 12 paper of white roses which again I've had for a long time so cant tell you the make, S.U. heart embossing folder across the centre and also MFT Crochet border die.  Corners are Whimsy Dies and for the rings I've used a Marianne Die very kindly lent to me by my friend Eileen, the leaves are a Cheery Lynn Rose Flourish die.

Wont be doing much crafting this week as the grandchildren are on half term and also we are going to meet a new member of the family a little rescue dog who has now been adopted by our youngest daughter and family...will post you pictures later on in the week.
