Lavender Time at the Craft Cottage

Hi Everyone

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Creative Craft Cottage 

The theme for the next fortnight is Add a Lavender Ribbon or Bow.  This challenge is dedicated to the owner of this blog who sadly passed away at the end of May.  She is greatly missed by the team.  Lavender is the Awareness Ribbon colour for All cancers so this is the reason behind this theme.  The sentiment I chose for my card totally explains how much I miss our daily chats.

One of our sponsors for this special challenge is Lacy Sunshine Stamps and I chose an image to work with called Love is in the Air and coloured this with ProMarkers 

I made a Twisted Easel Card.  My Base/Frame Layer is a Bazzill Basics Card and the Patterned Paper is from Wild Rose Studio.  I used a Lavender colour trim down the side and added satin bows to this.  I also popped on a larger Satin Bow.  I added Paper Flowers and Hand Stamped the Sentiment which is from Inkylicious.

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges


Thank you for taking the time to share this card with me today.  I hope that you will come and play along in our challenge.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think and I hope to see you again soon.
