Card Concept #30 - Thinking of You





Welcome back! We have another sweet inspiration photo for you this week at the Card Concept Challenge. "Thinking Of You" could be sympathy, get well, support, encouragement....

I focused on the pretty mauve lilacs (bottom right hand side of the pitcher). Hmmm....on second thought, could it be a hyacinth?

The stamp is an old Studio G stamp that has a bit of a graphic look, but in a soft way. I chose a curvy sentiment to mimic the 'movement' of the pretty flower petals.

For some ca-razy reason (again!), the sentiment ink looks like it's a different color....but it is exactly the same as the image (SU Lavender Lace)! Go figure! 

I hope that you will find time to join us for this challenge. It's always a pleasure visiting your blogs and enjoying your artistic creations.

Happy crafting and thanks for stopping by!

  15. HELLO, my wonderful friend! I was sure I'd left a comment, but apparently in my state of disorganized (for reasons unknown... I seem to be walking around in a perpetual state of 'dither', which also involves visits to 'dilly-dallying' and 'd-uh'), either I didn't or blogger is back to its games. Whatever, I'm here, oohing and ahhing over the stunning simplicity of your sweet lavander/mauve dotted flowers, swaying in the breeze, next to its pretty, wavy sentiment. Soooo pretty! Answering your question about my coffee card: My Creative Time. It's a combined stamp/die set...
    Hugs~c
