Garden mail


Hello everyone ... I am on the mend and so very grateful for your kind wishes, your prayers and your cyber hugs! It means a lot ....


Today of course is the start of another City Crafter Challenge ..Garden Mail ... my very first attempt at setting a challenge and the DT have done me proud .. please check out their lovely creations.
The picture of course comes courtesy of Leslie A Creative Mint ... she does the most beautiful and inspiring work .. you really should go and have a look ... no crafter could be short of inspiration seeing her photographs ...


On to my project...



I have a passion for old envelopes, writing, postcards ... you name it! and I've had this paper - part of an Ephemera pack - for the longest time, not wanting to use it but just look at it .. weird girl that I am .. now combined with the lavender, lilac and white ... it looks even better ...



The little white flowers are stamped on, flower stickers and jewels added together with some pretty organza flowers ......

I couldn't stop there I had to make a bookmark too .... and a little acetate cover to protect it ..



Well that's me for now ... Many Congratulations to of all our winners at City Crafters .. and a big thank you to all of you who enter and make it such fun ...

Till soon
Keep safe

Ros

Hi Ros, just had to pop over to your blog and let you know how much I love the challenge this week! The colors combined with the mail theme is so inspiring! Your card is just beautiful and as hard as I tried, I just couldn't come up with anything I liked as much as your card and bookmark! Well done! Thanks for the inspiration!

I could so relate to you having something so beautiful you just don't want to use it. But I'm glad you did so we could see this FABULOUS outcome! And the bookmark with the cover was just icing on the cake!!!
