Good morning ( just about )
Hope everyone in blog land is having a great weekend. I am currently staying at my brothers house looking after his cat. He flew to Mexico on Wed for 2 weeks, lucky !!! So have had a little bit of relaxing craft time , however with a serious limited stash. Reminds me of the days I had just started to craft !! Way before the hoarding started..... Now i have more than i know what to do with. But Im sure all us crafty people are the same. 
So its time for a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu, the theme is gems, sequins. Heres my make

 A little basic but hey ho !

Have a great weekend.
