Let's Get Sentimental

This week's challenge at Sentimental Sundays is "Let's Get Sentimental".  I made another coaster, I love recycling (& upcycling) & making something old look new again :)  So I covered an old coaster with 2 scraps of DP, inked the edges of the coaster with Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink added some lace & a couple of gems.  The sentiment is by Rainbdrop Echo at Whimsy Stamps.  The DT have come up trumps as usual so there's plenty of inspiration for you :) (I forgot to say I did cover the coaster with Spray & Shine to make it more durable but you can't see this from the photo)

The challenges:
Creatalicious - All About Lace
Stamps R Us - Anything Goes
Delightful - Use Your Scraps
Digi Doodle - Anything Goes
Allsorts - Anything Goes
Mema's Crafts - Anything Goes
Penny's - Anything Goes

I hope you're having a great weekend :) Are any of you on Pinterest? I've just got in to it & it's very addictive lol - it's great though cos you can keep all your favourite stuff in one place & it's easy to find.  My boards are HERE if you're interested (there's a lot of sewing stuff on there at the mo as I'm just getting into sewing again).
