Flowers and Lace

Hello ...

I hope you are enjoying your week ... We are still dealing with the rain and high winds ... Thankfully in my neck of the woods we haven't been flooded out like so many people in the UK... I just could not imagine the heartache they must feel ...
 The weather is affecting the internet connection here though so it makes blogging and in particular leaving comments a very long and painful process
Seems that crazy weather is affecting lots of the planet right now...

 Today of course is challenge time at City Crafter and our newest DT member, the sweet and very talented Anna, has set our challenge which is 

Use Flowers and Lace


This beautiful inspiration photo was taken by Anna and it speaks of vintage, shabby chic and romance ... Yet my card this week has more of a modern twist ... 
I made it for my SIL who celebrated her birthday last week


... using a Flourishes stamp from a set I was lucky enough to win from one of their DT members ... my friend Heather


... And that gorgeous crown embellishment came from my friend Diane


Our Guest Designer this week is Victoriya, winner of challenge 195, I'm sure she would love it if you stopped by her blog and said 'Hi" 
And check out the projects from my fellow DT at CCCB too...

We hope you'll come and join us this week ... and please bear with me if I haven't been able to visit your blogs yet ... hopefully this weather can't last forever

Have a lovely day

Till soon

Sorry about the weather, Ros, we are starting spring, our temps are really lovely! Love your card, it has a real fresh look, love the bit of lace. I am starting to feel like typing again, so maybe I will be able to catch up now! Hope you have a lovely Tuesday!

Very nice card, Ros! I like bright colors and crown embellishment! ))

Hi Ros, love your multicoloured big V striped paper with those black accents. The little framed crown seems like such a perfect embellishment and the sentiment...lovely!
I hope your weather starts behaving soon. My husband left for Manchester yesterday afternoon for business
( sowerby near Halifax ). We are having seasonal temps here in Austin now, but it has been a chilly winter!

Beautiful card for your SIL Ros! I love the lace and pretty flower with the stripes! Stay safe from the weather ;)

Very pretty! I love the design and PP! Thanks for the link on the pom poms, it helped!!!

If it's possible for a card to be both vintage and contemporary this is it. Fabulous and I just love those words.

Barbara said...

Beautiful card but it really is a surprise that you don't jump at the vintage / shabby chic theme!
It's never a good sign when the weather in other countries makes it to our news... and yours has been there for weeks. The flooding is incredible and every time I see the next front moving in from the Atlantic I wonder if it is ever going to stop. I keep my fingers crossed...

Beautiful card Ross, bet your SIL loved it!

Tracy said...

LOL. I'm not going to place any bets against the weather. It seems to be winning lately. Hope things calm down soon. Your card fabulous. The pattern really jumps out there and grabs you and I love the pretty lace and crown. Hugs!

I am very grateful that my personal friends in the UK have not been flooded like so many... poor people... I so hope that their troubles will soon be over... Your SIL must be so pleased with her card, that text is awesome, as is the design of your card Ros! Ira x

The situation is the UK is filled with worries for so many of you. It affects a lot of people and I hope that they will get help from other but first of all; the government...

Your card is sweet and the modern twist is so pretty. Love that flower!
