A "Carte Postale" for you my friends....

If you read my first post today you will have seen some of my holiday pics  - Now it's time to get myself back into crafting mode...


Sweet Linda "My Happy Place" has set the challenge this week over at City Crafters Challenge blog and it is "Shades of Green" and the very talented Anabelle O'Malley.... is the guest designer. It's a brilliant challenge ... who doesn't like green? I think God created nature in so many shades of green because he knew it was restful ... so peaceful. I particularly like the beautiful shades of Spring as the trees burst into life... so fresh. Then again I adored the muted earthy tones.. olive, sage and pistachio... 
So here is my card... a "Carte Postale" just for you my friends in blogland......



Various shades here but I'm not so sure this picture picks them up very well.......




Had to use glitter... green of course


And some of my beautiful lace from Kirsty ........

As this card also has stitching on, I thought I should enter it in the Papertake Weekly Challenge - Stitching... never entered that before ... The design team have some wonderful examples... go take a peek.

Must go now - club night tonight and thankfully my dear friend has come up with a project for this week to give me a bit of a break but I still have things to organise and take along.

Hugs till soon

Ros
