I love to think of nature
as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.

Lavender Dreams

Well, I'm late for the Play Date Challenge this week.  Spending four days in bed with a very bad cold slowed me down tremendously.  Two weeks ago it was just a sinus headache.  Last week, it turned into a sneeze and just snowballed from there.  I had already started this card so even though it's late I posted it anyway.  I had decided to add a couple other challenges while making it too.  I love these colors, they match my bedroom and master bath!  I may just have to keep this card, frame it and hang it in the bath!

I tried another new technique today too.  Over at Gingersnap Creations was a tutorial on tissue paper fringe.  Very easy and it got my sewing machine out of the dust!  I'll definitely use that again.  A really cute idea.

Stamps:  Lavender from My Favorite Things.
Paper:  Lilac, Olive and Cream cardstock.  DP from stash.
Ink:  Staz On Black. Color Markers.
Extras:  'Dream' tag; pastel gem stickies; cream flowers; lilac tissue paper.

Play Date Cafe: Vintage Chic and Color Challenge
Pile It On:  Pastel Colors
Paper Cutz: Anything Goes
Tanda Stamps: 137 Simply Spring

Sweet Dreams!
