I have been neglecting my little blog for the past week and I am so sorry! My daughter and I have been preparing for her guest to arrive. She is from France and the two girls are having lots of fun together. They were friends before the first day was over! It's just wonderful to see them communicate in two languages (both speaking some French and English), giggle, teach each other, and then giggle some more. It truly is a small world.
The designers over at The Play Date Cafe have a fabulous color challenge this week. I love the palette and just look at these photos! I'm smitten by all the shabby goodness here - lace, pink ribbon, pearls, oh my!
My daughter is hosting a party for her friends so invitations are in the making. Here is one we finished today and the colors are perfect! The papers are scraps from the drawer layered on Early Espresso and Very Vanilla cardstocks.
We made the dove with baking clay and a mold. Such fun! The crown is die cut and the edges softened with Distressing Essentials. A bit of lace and some hand-dyed seam binding added a feminine look. A simple white button holds the tag stamped in Early Espresso Classic Ink. The sentiment is from All Holidays stamp set and punched with the Jewelry Tag Punch.
Thank you for stopping by and for your understanding during this busy couple weeks! I'll be back soon ... promise!
