Pretty pearls ...

 The sun is shining here ... a crisp autumnal day ... it was on days like this that I loved to walk down by the river at Pickerings Pasture with my beautiful German Shepherd Holly and before her ... beautiful Kelly ... (my profile picture was taken here) ... At this time of year it is a meeting place for literally hundreds of Canadian geese ... We would hear them long before they swooped in .. a formation team that never failed to take my breath away ... the constant chatter amongst them echoing around the quiet stillness of this peaceful place ... How I miss it ... 
Yet somehow, without my girlies by my side I can no longer face it ... I still hear the geese flying over early in the morning and nod a silent hello ...

I  have a card to share today ... I made this for the Shabby Tea Room challenge where the very talented Clare  .. is hosting and has provided this gorgeous picture ..


... and I used the sketch from the new challenge over at Card Patterns ... 

I'm not always good with sketches ... my mind always wants to take me somewhere else ...
So this is my card ...


I covered a little wooden heart ( there's a song in there somewhere) ... with pearls and beads and glitter ..

I sprayed the card with glimmer mist too but I don't think you can see that ...

Before I go I just want to thank the gals over at The Play Date Cafe ... I got a "Cream in our Coffee" award for this card which I am thrilled about ... Thank you!
I need to get organised for my club night soon ... so have a great day everyone

Till soon

Ros

Well you definitely don't have a wooden heart ( Elvis Presley :)...)
I nearly fell of my chair; I can't get my eyes of it. LOVE it. Those papers.... in fact: everything....
