Hi friends! Confession time... I *may* have gone a little bit crazy when the new Prima collections came out. I seriously had to have them all, and now I have an entire box full of Prima lovelies that I just want to sit and stare at all day! I just keep pulling them out and flipping through them and then not actually getting anything made! LOL I'm really hoping to make some mixed media canvases soon with some of the goodies... if I can ever stop staring and start creating! {grin}

Anyhow, judging from the sheer amount of Prima paper and ephemera on my desk right now, I'm thinking you're going to be seeing quite a bit of shabby chic creations from me for quite some time.  The Lavender collection brings back fond memories of my Grandma who loved lavender.  Although I really like purple, I rarely have found any purple papercrafting products that I like as much as this collection.  So here's a shabby little card I put together with an image from the Graciellie Design digi I used on yesterday's card and a sentiment from the Coffee Helps clear stamp set that just arrived back in stock.

The image is printed on a laser printer and colored with Copic markers.  I fussy cut it, then accented with a bit of string and a few little mini roses.  I selected a couple of papers from the Lavender 6 x 6 pad, then sponged with first antique linen and then vintage photo.  The sentiment is from Coffee Helps, stamped in early espresso and cut with a stitched circle die cut.  I finished with a bit of lace,  butterfly and ticket ephemera and a bit of foil accents rubbed onto the twine.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
