Divas by Design - Let's Celebrate!

Hello.... I hope you are all well.... it's Team A's turn over at 

and we have a wonderful theme for you this week of....

'Let's Celebrate'

I decided to make a vintage celebration card.... isn't it a fab photo! imagine receiving a gift bottle of champagne that size... you could get well tiddly !! Lol

We are sponsored by the wonderful Stamp and Create

I hope you can pop on over to our main blog at Divas by Design and see the rest of the teams celebration creations!!! :-))

Image: E-Vint
Paper: Agnes Biro - 'Christmas Kraft'
Stash: Crystal Swirl, Lace, Ribbon, Pearl

I've taken the last photo with a flash, so hopefully you can see the crystals in the lace a bit better! it's quite a sparkly card in real life, but hard to capture in photographs!

I almost forgot to schedule this post again last night... my mum isn't too well at the moment and so I'm trying to look after her and keep her warm and snug... don't think this weather helps... it's so cold and wet!!! 
Is there anything good on TV at weekend? not had time to look at the TV Guide yet.... I'm glad Neighbours is back on again now... I can get back into my routine !! Lol
Will catch up with you all soon...thanks for all your lovely comments... I really do appreciate them!
Take Care
Love and hugs
