Lavender And Lace For Grandma

Good morning to all my friends and fellow bloggers. I don't seem to have a  great deal of time to spend on the computer and in Blogland, at the moment, but when I get a few minutes I keep popping in. I have also had a problem with my computer  when my virus software detected a threat.  It isolated/closed down my search engine and a couple of other programmes that I use on a regular basis to contain the threat.  I was starting to panic a bit!  However, all is well again and it dealt with  the threat and I'm up and running again. Phew!

OSAAT has another challenge starting today and the theme is "Anything Goes With Vintage." I am using "Grandma's Cookies" from Digi Blessings. This image comes with a sentiment too but I chose not to use it this time. I was thinking this would make a nice Christmas card and the sentiment is "Grandma's never run out of hugs or cookies."

My Card

6" square card base - Crafters Companion cream pearlescent card stock
Digi image - Stitchy Bear
Purple pearlescent card stock - Jelly Bean
Backing papers - Papermania "French Lavender"
Pierced Noblw Rectangles - Sue Wilson
Lace - Local haberdasher
Crochet flower - made myself
Pearls - Hobby House
Promarkers to colour
Sentiment - computer generated

I do hope you decide to join uis this week because a number of youlike making vintage cards.  You have the chance to winn $10 to spend in the store. 

 Please pop over to the blog and see what delights my team mates have in store for you.

Take care and I  do hope that you enjoy the rest of the bank holiday weekend.

Interestingly enough Christine I have said I'm Finding I'm doing less crafting and too much in Blogland. I've told my blogging buddies I will be ducking in and out for that reason. That's not to say I won't be coming by though 😄 A fabulous card. I love that image and the papers are some of my fave. X

A darling & cute little mouse-ie image, and the grays & lavender shades just fit perfectly. Love the layout too. But what I liked best of all, is the vintage lace trim. This is exactly what a Grandma Mouse would want! It's delightful. Good luck with the computer. So irritating when this happens...Big hugs & TFS

Hi Christine
You always do super offset layers and this is no exception.
A truly lovely card and great sentiment.
That computer mularky sounds a pain.
Best wishes.
