Memories of Philomena and Caitlin.

Good morning all and Happy Valentines Day :D
Todays card is a little late as it was parents evening at my laddo`s school last night so my card was finished late.
He is doing really well, he is ahead in his subjects and his reading age has gone up to 12 yrs 7 months, he just needs to slow down a little as he tends to rush and his handwriting was mentioned again!! 
So here is my card for today which you will find at the Crafts and Me Inspiraton and Challenge blog tomorrow morning.
I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
1.Craft Your Passion Challenge - Challenge 200 - Special challenge (i have picked Chall 172 from july 2013 - Happy Birthday)
2.Little Miss Muffet Challenge - Challenge 79 - Happy Birthday
3.Milkcoffee Challenge - Girly
4.Just Inspirational Challenge - Ladies


Products used are:
White card
Hobbyhouse roses and Pearl medallions and lilac pearls
Lace
Ribbon
White acrylic paint.


a close up of the beautiful image.

and a sideways view.
Thanks so much for popping by it means a lot.
I am not sure how much i will be blogging next week as i am decorating my bathroom and hallways and after that my mum is away so i will be working extra at work.
Hugs Nic.
