Luscious Lime and Lilacs

Hi, ladies..
the picture is fixed you can now click on it to see it in detail.
hugs and thanks for all your nice comments and emails about this card :-) this sure makes me very happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! xxxxxxxooooxoxoxoxoxox

When i saw this image on the Magnolia inspiration site I wanted it sooo bad! Lilacs are the favorite flower of my mom and i have a hudge lilac hedge blooming in exactly this color right now in front of my kitchen window. I really love that little lilac flower stamp that goes with this line. As you can see.. i could not stop using that little flower stamp only at the card.. i made a matching envelope too. :-)

I will enter this card over to Papertake weekly. will have to check tomorrow why this pic does not show big if you click on it.. it is uploaded the same as my card from yesterday.


Embellishments and all papers: Stampin up Silver Hodgepodge, no brand sheer brown organdy ribbon
Coloring: Copics and white gel pen

on my short blog hopping today (sorry my boys are sick) i found two interesting blog candies i would like to share with you:

Bernies Blog Candy!

Am I the first one to leave a comment on this post?!

Claudia, you just amaze me!! Gorgeous card as always!! I haven't seen the little flower stamp before, will have to look for it on Magnolia website.

I have an exciting news to share!! I got the owner of the store where I teach my classes to get a wholesale account with Magnolia and she already placed the first order! I am SO happy!! Can't wait until the stamps come and I get more Tildas to play with..

Hi C, another gorgeous creation! I also love to decorate my envelopes; by either stamping the same image or using a left-over strip of the same paper and adding it...gives such a nice touch like your pretty envelope here!

Thank you so much for mentioning my candy - very generous of you! bx
