Lavender Wishes

Hi Folks

I'm still following through on my decision to use the leftovers up immediately, instead of chucking them on to the snippet mountain to be used some day, never ... so here's a card made from the bits left over from the lavender card and bookmark set posted a couple of days ago. This is definitely one for Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground :)
The topper sheet printed from the Pamela West CD has enough images for two cards - this is the second, layered up on to some snippets of background paper, and simply added to a white scalloped edge card base. A few embellishments for the finishing touch, et voila! we have a card.

Inside and back were decorated with leftovers too.
 
Material used: 
  • white scalloped edged base card
  • leftover images and papers printed from Pamela West CD
  • black ProMarker - run round the edges of the layers to add definition
  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad and Greeting stamp from a Docrafts set, name unknown
  • lilac organza ribbon, purple Vintage Berries card candi from stash 
Weather update - it's been dreadful! Lots of heavy showers and the temperature is definitely a few degrees less than it was.

Garden update - everything is looking a bit sorry for itself after the deluge :(

Project life album update - it's coming along nicely, definitely a speedier option than trying to scrap every photo in my collection. And I like the flexibility of the process, e.g. important documents can be put in page protectors and slipped in close to relevant photos and 12 x 12 scrap pages can be created and also be inserted alongside the photos. It's going to provide a comprehensive family history once it's complete.

Aha! The EM has just brewed so I'm off to have a cuppa. 

Hope you are enjoying better weather wherever you are. Take care and happy crafting,
