Lavender and Lace

OOMW it’s Thursday already, and I am starting to panic big style.  This time next week I will be sat at Newcastle Airport waiting for my flight to Heathrow for the connecting flight to Los Angeles for the CHA.  I still can’t believe it’s happening even though I can see it all around me …. DT work coming out my ears, lists upon lists upon lists of my To Do’s everywhere, clothes etc that need to go in the packing pile ….. I can see me making that plane by the seat of my pants!!

So on to today’s card which is for Lili’s Little Fairies challenge – Lavender and Lace.  I sneaked some buttery yellow in to warm the lavender …. I’m not fussed on purples, lavenders and lilacs much.  Give me pink any day Rolling on the floor laughing

I have used All our dreams from Lili of the Valley and only had a scrap of the dotty paper which fitted the tag card that I had been fiddling with so job’s a good’un – card done Smile 

The 25mm hybrid tea rose, 15mm roses, 10mm roses, 6mm rose buds and lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I’m dashing off to work now, I owe, I owe, it’s off to work I go, la la la (I’m singing this an awful lot lately …. must go on a stash ban lol).  And talking of stash bans, after the parcel that arrived from Dies to Die For yesterday containing 3 sheets of each of the new Pion Design papers  – From My Heart II amongst other goodies,  I am def on a stash ban and that’s before I hit the USA!!!  But oh the pain is so worth it, this is for sure their BEST collection ever.  Totally droolworthy and I am so glad I got 1 to stroke, 1 to hide away and maybe one to cut, but then again maybe not ha ha ha.

    I actually love the colour scheme Bev. I think I might even prefer the muted sheades of lavenders and purples to the pink sheades. Although on second thoughts........
    Very pretty card.

  32. I can feel your excitement/panic in your writing! Your card is beautiful--I know I say that about all of your cards, but I LOVE this one. I also have a tough time with purples, but the yellow makes it sing! I also hate cutting into gorgeous paper. I'm excited to see what your new paper is. Enjoy your trip to this side of the pond! God's blessings to you.

  36. Love your lavendar and yellow--great colors together. Sage also goes great with lavendar. You will have SOOOO much fun at CHA!!! Be sure to keep us posted on all the goodies you find. I bet you'll have perfect weather--here in Florida it's been more than perfect this winter...I would be weak with excitement if I was going to CHA!!!

  37. LOL-Bev...you will love CHA! And, I am heading to the Northern US. I live in FL...so it is a whole extra suitcase of sweaters! You can pack light...as far as clothes go!

    I love this card. And, I love purple. Purple and Pink...together. Soft. Those are the decorative colors of my art room! LOL

    This is such a precious card! The yellow is wonderful. I love the paper! I want to visit where you live...and shop where you shop! Or do you shop mostly on line? Someone is going to treasure this adorable card with this fabulous image!

    Take one thing at a time...maybe 2...and you will be here. Just remember to slow down when you get here, so you can enjoy and remember every moment. That it won't go by in a "Flash!"

    He IS Able!

  41. Oh Bev,
    You really should do purples/lilacs more often as this is just delightful. I love this shade of Lilac, it is one of my favourites as its so close to pink!! I love girlie colours but also the complete opposites in dark vintages. We crafters can be strange people can't we?! lol..
    I truly hope you have a wonderful time at the CHA shows and enjoy a safe flight.
    Best wishes Linda

  42. Oh, Bev, it's just gorgeous- love the shaped card and the lacey trims
    (both paper and lace). Don't worry, knowing you everything will get done and dusted and you'll really enjoy yourself.

  43. LOL......sorry Bev had a giggle at your expense but you sounded so like me when you have something important to do, the 'to do' lists are everywhere, i'm terrible, i can't do anything without writing list after list after list!!! Good Luck with the trip, i know you'll be fine, i'll be thinking of you hun, enjoy it thats the main thing. Ive never been abroad and with being disabled thought i would go nowhere now, but i had the opportunity to go to Ireland this August just gone and we went, ive never crossed the sea, never been on a ferry, havent had a holiday since i was 12 and never been to another country not even Wales or Scotland, but i did it, anxiety filed beforehand but i did it, and i dont regret one bit, love and hugs to you darlin, i know you'll be ok, hugs Vick xxxxx
