Lovely in Lilac...

Hi Everybody,

Today we have moved my youngest daughter from her old house to ours for three weeks until her new house is ready for her to move into.

And so my house looks like Steptoes back yard with all the stuff around.

I don't know how one small person can have so much stuff and most of it has gone into storage.

So this is just a short post due to lack of time... and energy !!

This is another card using the Letterpress Technique and yesterday I made a short video on this technique... and the page will be will be added to the website on Monday.... and I will post the link then.

For this card I have used the 3D M-Bossabilities folder
Framed Labels 18  and the Dusty Concord Distress Ink.  The bottom half to the card has been sparkled up with Glamour Dust and wrapped with some lace.

The flowers are a beautiful  arrangement from Wild Orchid Crafts and they too have the addition of Glamour Dust to the petals.  It is much prettier in real life.

Hugs xx
