52{ Christmas } Card Throwdown June Embellishment Challenge

Good Afternoon Readers,
Well it's another grotty day here in Cornwall, wind and the occasional drop of rain, the perfect weather for crafting........ did manage to get a bit of sun yesterday, sat in my back garden for a while, just as well....... not sure what the weather is doing tomorrow, hopefully better than today, but heyho, not much going on at Grannie Smith's Cottage today,  this is the name of my humble abode, you see many moons ago, there used to be a small shop, which is still part of my house, and it was called Grannie Smith's, after my Hubbies Mum, it is quite a large space with it's own front door, I keep nagging my hubby to help me turn it in to a large craft room come shop, with the idea of having card making classes in the evening, needs quite a bit doing to it, but I am sure we could do it....... it is one of my goals for next year, I will keep you all posted. Well joined in with the fun over on 52cct.blogspot today, you had to use pearls and sequins, and what a job I had with the pearls, so amongst the jewellery that my friend gave me I found a broken pearl necklace, so I used some of them for my design.
