Free form flower lattice card

Pin It
Hi all today is the most glorious spring day after Weeks of rain early morning walk in the sun dose wonders..... please keep praying for my husband hes has had some interviews which were really positive and our some has applied for some apprenticeships for next year. Our youngest daughter is looking at her options of whether to go on to yr 11 & 12 or start to do child care studies all of these will have big impacts on our family in lots of ways. Grannies house across the road is now occupied by new tenants which is so strange after so many years of knowing there is family close by but at the same time its a good feeling to see life again buzzing around her house.

Ok so i wanted to show you this free form lattice card ... this is first what i originally wanted to show you but got side stacked on the others. I found this video here which inspired this card in the first place and all the other ideas flowed from then. This card was embossed with the new folder from stampin up called Elegant lines Using the Labels 4 set from spellbinders nestibilities for the window(second largest die). Punches used were the 5 petal flower and the spring bouquet from stampin up with Bashful Blue ink sponged around the window and on all the flowers petals. The small flowers have tiny half pearls and larger ones have a blue button with larger half pearls in the center. You can purchase these stampin up products here.

Enjoy the video...Blessings to you

and a last thought from Gwenn(thankyou)

God is
with me now, closer than breathing
and nearer than hands and feet. God
has made me for Himself. I come from God,
I belong to God, I go to God.
God knows me, loves me and has
a use for me now and forever.

Valita I'm new to your blog (don't have one myself ) and I love your creations especially these wonderful lattice cards and have just attempted the one I call 'spider's web. I have a 38 yr (soon to be 39 ) ols Special Needs daughter who is totally in love with your new puppies too. She keeps wanting to know if there are going to be more photos of them, I've told her she'll have to wait and see as you're a busy lady.
Thank you so much for sharing your lovely creations with us.
Love Sheila.....UK xx

I love reading your blog. You are talking about spring rains and we are having fall weather (Texas!). I love knowing that we are loving the same craft, yet we are so far apart. Sometimes it is hard to understand because your words are a little different than ours, but the art is still the same. Thanks for posting your ideas and the verses at the bottom. They inspire me. God bless you and your family.
