Scheduled Post ...

Hi Everybody,

Todays post is a scheduled one because as you read this I will be doing the Coronation Street Tour in Manchester  and having a fabulous time with my "Film Crew"

I have wanted to do this for so long because this  street set  is closing down now that it has moved to new premises.

I will take some photos to show you for those who love to watch the programme.

But in the meantime here is todays card.... and it is a white on white theme.
The background is created using the 3D M-Bossabilities folder Framed Labels Eighteen  which has been Letterpressed with cream embossing powder

The pearls are from Want2Scrap  and match the Fancy Tags Three with the sentiment in it

The flowers and the  sparkly centre to the bow  are from   Wild Orchid Crafts

And once again I have added in a beautiful Hatpin ... and there is a tutorial to show you how I made some of this style pin  a few years ago ...  Decorative Hatpins 

So another card will be added tomorrow on my return from a lovely day out .... just hope it doesn't rain

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
