This is going to be a very quick post today, as i should be sorting out what we need to go on holiday on Saturday we are going to the Isle Of Wight and staying in a dog friendly cottage - which we are all really looking forward to, as i haven't been for many years and nor has Alan.
Today's card is using a stamp from 1996 and when i saw that there were a couple of Lavender and Lilac Challenges, i jumped at the chance of making a card, as i so love that colour and i combined it with some rather gorgeous 'Lilac Velvet Lace' from 'The Ribbon Girls, and fabby papers from LOTV - 'Promises / NitWit Collection, although i have quite a few punches i decided to use one of my dies to make the edging - 'Meridian Border' Memory Box, the flowers are WOC, and the sentiment is LOTV, i've made it into a Mother's Day card, as i'm a bit short for the 10 i usually send out for the troops in December.
Today's Card And Challenges :
Joanna Sheen - where the Challenge is 'Girls, Girls, Girls'
The Ribbon Girls - where May's Colour Challenge is 'Lavender And Lilac'
Cupcake Craft - where Challenge No: 243 is 'Lavender And Lace'
Sketch And Stash - where they are up to Sketch No: 114 and the twist is ribbon or lace - I chose Lace. The old is the stamp and the die is about a year old, the rest is new
Penny Black Saturday Friends - where May's Challenge is 'Anything Goes'
