Garden Lace Scene!

Good Afternoon Friends and Visitors and welcome to my wee bit of Blogland, I hope you enjoy your visit and pop in often.

Thank you all so much for the lovely encouraging comments on my CCC card, you are all very kind.

I got a call from my dear hubby last night to say they they had arrived in Reykjavik ans the weather was glorious, most unexpected as they had been following the weather for the last couple of weeks and there had been snow. Anyway, they can't get to do the walk planned as there is quite a bit of flooding, so if I understood rightly, that means the volcano, oh dear!.Walkers are very good at adapting to plan B though, so all will be well.

My card today is for The Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge;

As you can see the colours are fabulous but, I struggled a bit to come up with the right shades, you think you must have every colour under the sun, but wasn't the case here, so I hope they will do.
Anyway, I've used a wonderful Garden Lace Scene CB stamp , and the sentiment is from CB Macintosh Sentiments Set.
Coloured with SN Pens. The background papers is also from CB, it was a free download from Lesley, again the colours reflect the challenge, red card, Papermania Lace, Pearls from my box and Gold Glamour Dust.  I'm quite pleased with the result.

It's a dismal day here and really quite cool, Teallach is snuggled up on his cushion, I'm snuggled up in a fleece, more than half way through June and still no sign of Summer.  I hope it is better where you are.

Keep well everyone and see you soon,
I would like to enter my card into;

Kate a beautiful colour palette along with a gorgeous design. I am sitting with a fleece blanket across my feet and legs as its so cold, yet putting on the heating makes the house stuffy. Hazel x

rachel said...

this is awesome Kate - such a brilliant make - I'm playing with this theme at present - hopefully soon I'll have something to show. Maybe the floods Alistair is experiencing are due to the earlier snow and the current good weather? I hope plan b is good! Hugs rachel x

Sandy said...

Beautifully colors Kate - so rich! You should be pleased.
We are very hot here in Northern Florida - but we are prepared. Lots of sun here.

Gorgeous card Kate. Love how you have used the Garden Lace Scene. We all struggle to get the exact colors. The thing I struggle with is getting the colors out of my head onto the project!! :) Just noticed the baby Alpaca photo on your side bar. Soo cute. Thank you for playing along with the Chocolate Baroque Color challenge again this month.
Hugs Flo xx
