Framed Window Lilacs

Hello Everyone -

I know! Lilacs are for summer time...Let's just say I am day dreaming! lol Actually, this is a card for my grandmother. She turned 86 on Saturday and as always, I am late in sending out a card!

A little health update on me... I am doing much better. Each day I feel a little less pain. That is such a blessing! I am experiencing some nausea today, but I think it was more from something I ate and lack of sleep last night than anything else. I wasn't feeling well last night either...but compared to a week ago, I am feeling better. :)

Anyways, about my card!!! Congratulations to Lisa being chosen as the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast Stampers today!! She has such a wonderful gallery filled with so many great projects! I chose this one -

The things I changed are:
1. The colors and stamps
2. Instead of a bow, I added lace and words
3. I added an additional layer with the Spellbinders.

This card also used the Technique Junkie Newsletter and the Framed Nesties Window.

Stamps: Lilacs in the summer from Mark's Finest Papers
Paper: Amethyst Metallic, Grape Jelly Pop Tones, Cryogen White
Ink: Copics, Memento, Amethyst
Accessories: Spellbinders, Lace, Fibers, Pearl Gems, Spellbinders
Techniques: Framed nesties Windows

This is gorgeous! Fab coloring on the lilacs. I love lilacs so much, I think they should bloom year round! Lilac stamps can make that happen. :-)

Hi Chris!

(I know, you aren't supposed to type in all CAPS unless you are yelling.)


You have made a beautiful card! And, your Grandmother will love it...but not as much as YOU! I love lilacs...always have...always will. And, you have such a beautiful frame for it! I love the bit of trim across the card...this is any season!


He IS Able!
