Totally Gorjuss Challenge 71 - Pearls and Lace - DT

Today is a new challenge over at Totally Gorjuss and this week's theme is 'pearls and lace'.  I love using both of these so these card was a dream for me to make and of course I have used a Lili of the Valley image too.  My new stamps from the new releases came the other day so more Lili of the Valley cards next week from me so don't say I didn't give you warning lol!  It is also my birthday on Tuesday, I love birthday's again now, I had a couple of years where I didn't mainly because it was on my 30th birthday back in 2005 that we were told my gorgeous baby boy had Down's Syndrome, yep it took them 9 months of pregnancy and then another 10 months of him being here to notice lol! we laugh now and look back at baby photos and think how did they not know - we didn't cause he was our first and to us perfect but hey ho it made no difference any way and never would have done but I think if we had know earlier maybe my beautiful daughter Grayce wouldn't be here - I was 6 weeks pregnant with her when we found out about Ben so it was a blessing really and my god the care I got during my pregnancy with her, second to none but I think it was all down to guillt on the hospitals part.  Anyway enough of my waffle and enjoy the rest of your weekend and I look forward to visiting as many of you as I can this week.
If you are interested this card is for sale on ebay.
