For My Daughter

Helloooooo everyone, have you put your clocks back? Did you enjoy that extra hour? My dog's clock did not go back & she still wanted go potty at the usual time.......I couldnt find the dial to turn her back neither :-)

Anyhoo my lovelies I have a card that I havnt shown yet & it was for my daughter-in-laws birthday...........though to us she is our daughter, we certainly love her just as much.
I've used her favourite brand of stamps......I'm so lucky she loves the same ones as me lol...
Her birthday was a couple of weeks ago......although I made this about a month ago now.

I've used the oh so pretty Pion Design 'Scent Of Lavender' paper from Noor Design UK. The 'Lavender' Tag is from the Memory Notes sheet. The sheets I've used on the card are 'Fields Of Purple' & 'Provence' which is one of my favourite sheets.
The shape of the card is round which I made with a Go-Kreate die

I added a border & made the sentiments from the 'Scent Of Lavender Borders' sheet. I added a bit of bling from my bling stash & used a Joy Crafts die to make the Lavender.....
You can also see a doily peeking out at the top ;-)
The window is a Marianne die & I cut a piece of pion paper to make it look like wallpaper behind her, keeping it simple so this pretty Tilda didnt get lost. This Tilda is from the Magnolia Boho collection & she is called 'Boho Tilda'. I stamped her onto my favourite watercolour paper Fabriano & coloured her with distress ink refills only.

I made 2 bows with lilac seam binding from my stash & added a Bark Heart & I made a cabochon, using a circle from the 'Scent Of Lavender Tags' sheet.....

As always inside is also decorated to match the front.
All other dies are Magnolia, the leaves are cut from 'Scent Of Lavender Small Leaves' sheet. Nearly all of the flowers are from Noor Design UK. I also added a 'Mini Gift Bag' & added a tag from the 'Scent Of Lavender Tags' sheet & added an eyelet, some waxed cord & a charm.

Thankfully Megan loved the card, I LOVE making things for Megan as she values every single one & keeps them all in her unit........it makes it worth it doesnt it......especially for how long these take to make & how much love & care we put into them.

Well I'm going now but enjoy your Sunday everyone, hope you have a lovely day.
