Christmas in July?

Hi there ... just popping in with a little Christmas card I made for The Shabby Tea Room challenge ... 



Last year I made so many Christmas cards I can't tell you! ... I never wanted to see another ... Then I got my Christmas things out today .. still seems like only a week ago since we had Christmas!
Still I enjoyed playing about ... 



I love shabby style Christmas cards ... always makes Christmas seem special... like days gone by....

Have a lovely weekend everyone.......

Sweet Little Lilac....



This morning I have a little card to share which I made for the Play Date Cafe challenge ... This is the inspiration photo .....

A beautiful Lupin all fresh and dewy ... the colours are bold and striking, which for some reason gave me a little trouble - maybe I  find soft colours easier .. anyway this is my card ....




My image is a digital Hero Arts image - Vintage Skyland Birds ... 

It is ironic that I am posting these lilac and purple colours as I have just discovered that last nights storm took out my beautiful fragrant lilac bush. It was just about to bloom and having only been planted late last year, as a tiny little thing ... it survived a bitter winter of snow and ice. I looked at it only yesterday with admiration and the kind of pride a mother gets to see her child flourish ...  I love all living things and to see something you have nurtured thrive is a joy ... right now I am so sad .....

Till soon

Ros
