Hi everybody! It's been a cold and wet week here, but the weather men have promised us that we will have some summer next week. I wonder....
I was lucky to get happy mail twice this week. The first mail came from my good friend Diane in Michigan, who sent me a packet full of lovely papers and images she printed out for me, as my printer is not behaving itself at all. Of course, I could hardly wait to get my fingers on the papers and start making something with them! Aren't they gorgeous?
This lovely card from Diane came too. Thanks a lot Diane, it is so good to have friends who help!
The ladies over at Out of a Hat Creations have chosen 'Inspired by a song with a flower in the title' as their theme. After doing some research in internet, I cam across a song from 1939 called 'Lilacs in the rain', written to an Irish folk-melody. You can hear Bing Crosby singing it here.
I made a Double Z-fold card, and used the lovely papers from Diane. I didn't have any lilacs in my stash, so I sorted out all the mini-lilac coloured flowers I had, and put them together to look like lilacs and glued them on, using seed beads for the centres. I added a butterfly on one side, and that was that.

The second happy mail that arrived this week was from Alex , who sent me a beautiful painting which she made. It now has pride of place in my arty kitchen where I sit and create, on the wall opposite my place. I love the soft shades and speckled background. Isn't it beautiful? Thanks Alex, I will treasure it, and let it inspire me!
Once again I have to say what a caring and generous community bloggers are!
Have a great weekend you all, take care, and thanks a lot for dropping in!
