Lavender's Blue....

Lavender's Blue...

Hi everyone, I hope that you're all well, I've been making the most of the 
lovely weather that we've been having these past few days and have started 
going on my walks again. Today's walk took me along the
 Castle Eden Walkway which is just 5 minutes away from where I live, I'm
so lucky to have the choice of  walking in woodland or walking along the 
beach aren't I. I was hoping to find frog spawn at the pond but maybe it's a 
little early yet after all Spring was rather late coming this year. 

Anyhow, when I got back from my walk yesterday I spent some time crafting, 
and I have made this card using one of my new images from 

The Paper Shelter 

The image I've used is called 

The Music Practice 

Card Recipe
Hunkydory Adorable Scorable, Papermania Capsule French Lavender design papers, 
Gingham Ribbon and hand tied bow, Treble Clef charm, Creative Expressions 
*String Flowers* die, Joy Crafts Noor Design Border die, Whimsy Tag die and 
2mm, 4mm & 6mm Flatbacked pearls

I coloured this gorgeous *The Paper Shelter* image using a selection of Pro/Flexmarkers.

This piece of music paper was in my Mums stash and I just colourised it with 
Satin Promarker and a Blender Pen

This is a close up of the beautiful design papers and the Treble Clef Charm.

The sentiment was printed out on word, I them colourised it with the Satin Promarker 
& Blender pen. next I cut it out using the Whimsy die, then I cut some of the Adorable 
Scorable and offset the sentiment to create a frame.

Now these beautiful blooms were made using my newest die which I bought 
from Hochanda, having watched the lovely Lisa Horton demoing them, they're 
from Creative Expressions and the dies called String Flowers....I absolutely 
LOVE them!!

Well that's all from me for the time being. 
Have a fab day everyone.
