"Bit of a Copy Cat"

Good morning Blog Friends.  Well that`s the weekend over once again, hope you all had a good one.
Thank you for taking time to pop in and see me today..  Please leave a comment if you have time that way I can come visit you to see what you are getting up to.
I have been very busy sorting out my "Stuff" to put in the cabinet that Elaine has given me in her new Tearoom.   I am very naughty, make cards, pile them up, then when I feel like it I do the inserts, make the boxes etc:-  Saturday was a day of doing just that and Boy! what a state the kitchen was in........STUFF everywhere.  We had to retreat to the Dining Room for meals, "No room at the Kitchen table"   All done, along with some Jewellery bits and pieces, in a crate ready to go along later this morning.  Must try to remember my camera so I can show you.
Elaine and Doug hope to open on the 3rd of March.  I think they are to have an "Opening" invite a few people along then open officially to the public on the Monday. 

My card today is my take on a Sue Wilson card.  No point denying it, any of her followers will spot it right away, it it is just so her style

Base card 5 x 7 Centura Pearl
White card pierced round the edge
White card 2/3rds embossed with Creative Expressions Tied Together Folder 
Cosmic Shimmer Glue used for pearls on the pattern joints
Just Rite stamp for the greeting cut out and dipped in Micro Beads
Pink ribbon from my stash.  I actually think it is Anna Griffen ribbon I bought in the States years ago
Pearl Dazzler - Creative Expressions from Sam Poole`s shop

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate it.
