Sunshine and Lavender

Hello ...

How was your weekend? Mine was busy catching up with family and helping my SIl to make some cards ... I showed her a few techniques with embossing, chalking and stamping and she went home a happy girl with a few cards and lots of die cuts.

Today of course is time for a new challenge at City Crafter  - I have to say that every week I am blown away with your entries to our challenges ... you lovely people are so very talented ... I literally drooled over each and every entry last week! You've no idea how hard it is for us to pick winners ...

 This week we have the lovely Char hosting for us with a
Sunshine and Lavender theme make a card or project using Lavender and Yellow
 I can hardly wait to see what you come up with

Here's the beautiful inspiration photo Char has given us


I decided to try my hand at a shaker card for my sister's birthday using these colours in my stamping


It's really hard to photograph things with acetate don't you think?


The balloon stamps and word die I used are by Lil' Inker though the sentiment is computer generated


I love that word die ... I cut it twice ... once out cardstock I first stamped using my favourite Precious Remembrance stamp from New Day ... then again out of grey card and slightly offset them to give the dimensional look ...

Our GD this week is Karasiowa ... who won week 211 with her beautiful creation and once again we are offering a GD spot to our winner this week.
I hope you can join us 

Have a great week and thanks so much for your visit and your kind comments

Till soon

A fabulous design. Adore the shaker element and offsetting the word in that way is very effective.
