Good evening peeps how ya all doin'? I did mean to photo & post this at lunch-time but its been 1 of those days where I've not had time for anything.....are there really 24 hours in a day cus I think I'm being jipped ya know!!! Anyway I have a hubby who has chicken pox according to our nice doc today....just lovely & I have children who need fed so I'm gonna TRY & keep this short.
Stokie Shell if you are reading sweetie I havn't forgot to ring you sweetie I will ring you later as long as my 14 year old son keeps off the phone to his girlfriend long enough lol.
Anyway onto my card PFP have a challenge set by my lovely boss Emma & the theme is Lavender, Lace & Pearls. The lace & pearls are easy peasy however I'm not really a lavender-lilacy-purply kinda gal.....BUT I really enjoyed doing this card & I have even used 1 of my new stamps hubby got me about a month ago.. woo-hoo. Here is my card..........
Here is 'Purple Comfort' by the super talented ching-chou kuik.....I absolutely love this artist!!!! Isn't she soooo pretty & I love the puddy-tats. She is of course coloured with Promarkers.
It is of course an easel card.......I bet you thought I forgotten about the lace & pearls....way-not-likely, they are the important parts lol. I am really pleased with how this card has turned out & I'm gonna seek out some more lilac paper as this was my only 2 sheets lol & I think I will be making more lilac creations. OH NO I've got to shop for paper.....but a gals gotta do wat she gotta do.....he he hee. I'm sure I will survive an hour or 2/3 on the net shopping lol.
I got my 'Amour' stamp which I hadn't got around to using til now, I pressed it onto Versamark Watermark stamp pad & randomly stamped onto lilac card. I sprinkled on embossing powder & applied my heat gun & voila this is the result....I LOVE it!!!
This is the remainder of the card, I also stamped it onto off white card & used black embossing powder & then cut out the tag using my Magnolia Doo Hickey die & inked the edges with 'Milled Lavender' distress ink. I had some lace in my stash tied it into a bow then attached a string of pearls which I got from my jewellery craft stash. Oh notice the stitching my darling hubby brought me a sewing machine this morning so I just HAD to use it lol. It was on a sale actually for 69.99 down from 139.99....bargain & you can buy it from here
This is to try show the sparkle.
List of materials used.......
Paper is Websters Pages ' Lullaby Lane & Life's Portrait', 30 mm Lilac Mulberry Curly Rose, 20mm Lilac Rose, Lilac Cherry Blossom & Pearl Bead Spray are all available at Crafty Emma's Store she also has the new 35mm Gardenia's in her shop now which are gorgeous!!!!!

Well thats about it I hope you like my card. I also want to thank peeps for leaving me comments regarding a printer. I have decided to stick with my Epsom even though for some reason I have to run a clean on it way too often, the quality is still good & the ink is sooo cheap off the net.....so why replace it??? Thankyou every1 for the advice I really appreciate it.
Well off to link up now maybe I will be back later but no promises lol.
Thanks for stopping by & sending you all hugs for leaving the lovely comments you leave, you are all the best!!!!
