Flowers and Lace

Good morning all , thanks for popping in today....the first of July....another month nearer to Christmas...( sorry, it just had to be said)

Today it is a new Challenge over at the Fussy and Fancy Challenge blog...

It is hosted by our wonderful leader and lovely friend , Sheryl...

She has chosen Flowers and Lace for her theme

And we are sponsored by Sweet Lilac Flowers...

Here is what I have come up with....I do hope that you like it..

Do pop over to the Fussy and Fancy blog and look at all the other samples from the fab DT...

Even better , I would love you to enter the challenge...

My card started off with one of my all time favourite Clarity stamps...Friends...

 

I added some colour using my Clarity stencil brushes...

They really are so easy to use...I couldn't live without them

Then I framed the girls using a couple of stamps from the Wee Foliage set, these stamps never leave my desk.,,

Colour was added using Wink Of Stella pens, as this adds just the right amount of sparkle too.

The background paper is a Graphic 45 paper from the Botanical collection and is called Robins Eggs.

The lace is from Sweet Lilac , and is a perfect backdrop for their gorgeous flowers.

I do love to play with embellishments, this often takes me longer than any other part of the card...

I stamped the word friendship from the word chains,,.and just chopped it into two...as I only wanted the word Friends...

Oh yes....there had to be a Clarity butterfly on there too....

I do love this image...just adorable...

I am a big fan of these little leaves too...they just finish off the floral design...

Well, I had better get on, I need to go and buy some food as the fridge is empty...and then pack my bags ready for our Clarity Manchester workshop tomorrow...

Oh I nearly forgot, my Mum sends hugs to all you lovely ladies for your kind words and support whilst she was in hospital. I went to visit my parents yesterday after the Kendal class,,,

Mum is doing well, and managing to get round with her pot leg and crutches...in fact I think the Groovi system is just what she needs at the moment....perfect to her her out of trouble....

The Kendal class was fab and the ladies were just such good company,,.

And Jane looks after me so well...

One of our regular ladies, Muriel has been in hospital and was too ill to come and play....so we made her a card as we missed her so much...Mona took to her....

You see Crafters really are the most kind, friendly and generous people in the world...

Love you all

Have a great weekend....and remember my Boss lady is on tv this weekend...

Barbara is on Hochanda on Sunday with new stamps and stencils, and Monday with a one day Groovi special...

Take care all...

Much love and hugs.
