The Sisterhood of Crafters - Pink and Lavendar

Good morning everyone and welcome to a brand new challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters.  The challenge is a color challenge:

                                               "Pink and Lavendar"
                                           Use this photo as inspiration:

I love this fence and wish mine looked this way.  It just speaks to me; what could be more wonderful than to walk past this on a summer day and smell those roses!

I bowed the fence a bit and then added the flowers down the side.  You can barely see it but there is lavendar ribbon tucked in there.  I also fell in love with the way these butterflies turned out and just had to use them.

Now it's your turn to create a project and link it to The Sisterhood's blog; I can't wait to see what you make.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

A Wedding Card.....

Good morning everyone and welcome to my little corner of the world.  I'm here this morning to share a card I made for a family member getting married in June.

It's not showing up very well but there is gold cardstock under the cut outs and in the layers.  I wanted this to be an elegant card as they are very special to me and I wish them the very best life has to offer! I made Asters using dies from Heartfelt Creations Delicate Asters.  I hope you enjoy seeing this as much as I enjoyed making it!

My Bella...

Bella turned two in January and we are definitely experiencing her terrible twos. Actually she is a really good snuggle bunny and only torments Maggie some of the time!  Yesterday was her first grooming appointment as I had always done it myself.  Yes it always did look like a homemade haircut but I was pretty pleased with the outcome most of the time.  She has thick, fine hair and it wants to mat and cause her grief so I decided we needed some help and off she went to see what could be done.  Well she took right up with one of the girls and didn't mind that I left her at all.  They said she was perfect when I picked her up, but of course at that point I was there to take her home and all the struggling was over. They did some thinning so that should make her coat a little easier to care for.

This photo was taken at 4:30 AM this morning and you can see she has bed head.  Be grateful I'm not doing a selfie!  We won't talk about my bed head!

She is giving me one of her looks this morning...she isn't pleased with me for taking photos before she had a chance to pretty-up!  About the only thing left of her new "do" is the cute little pink bow and it is lop sided! She looks tiny doesn't she? She weighs 5 lbs. and is what they call a Teddy Bear Yorkie.  They are short and stocky and have that sweet little face.  I just wanted to let you have a little look into my world this morning.

Good morning everyone...come on in and sit a spell!  I'm here to show the top of my work space this morning and then share it in the world wide get together over at Julia's blog.  All we do is take a photo of our space and blog about it, then link it on Julia's blog and you are ready to go.  We can visit each other and see what we have going on in our world!  It is so much fun and I love looking in on all of you!

You can see I have been using the push back technique here.  Problem is there is about a 4" space between the back of my desk and the wall; can you guess what is going to happen?  I have been down on my knees many times looking to fish something out from behind my desk that fell off!  While I'm there...on my knees...I usually try and take advantage of it and have a little heart to heart with my Lord !

I've been digging for my butterflies and seem to be obsessed with butterflies these days.  I love butterfly stamps, butterfly papers, butterfly die cuts!  They seem to be used a lot these days so I'm right on point!  See the spool of lilac colored ribbon under the butterflies?  I will be using that on a card that will be featured soon!  I had to do a bit of retail therapy in order to purchase that ribbon so it all worked out!

Well that's it for me!  I don't want to get too long winded this morning.  I'm off to visit Julia's blog and get started visiting as many of you as I can!
