Eclectic is back !!

Finally after our Christmas break the DT and our wonderful boss over at Eclectic Ellapu are back. This is our first post of the year. I'm on the purple team and the theme was hearts and roses. I used graphic 45 Time to celebrate with roses on and added a gorgeous metal rose charm that I got from the lovely Christine Emberson. The die is from creative expressions, I think it's a Sue Wilson one 
Here it is .....

Love the colours in this paper collection. 
Well must go as I'm posting on my break from work. Got a lovely evening planned tomorrow as all the ladies from Tuesday craft club run by the amazing sue are going for a meal yay !! They truly are a great bunch. 
Hope you have all had a wonderful weekend. Take care , catch up soon xxxx
