A Passion for Papertrey Challenge

The challenge for the last two weeks at a Passion for Papertrey blog is to make a card using your favourite cherished colours. I have two favourites - lilac and pink - so I made two cards rather than combine the two!

I took my layouts from a Christmas card Niki Estes made this week which you can see here which I just love! The first card has my favourite stamp set too - Spiral Bouquet.




















Double trouble here tonight - with a pink version using Everyday Button Bits -



















I made this pink one for my friend Tilly in New Zealand (it's in the post Tilly!)- she sent me the most lovely card when I lost my beautiful Chocolate Point Burmese called Jalpa two weeks ago. She was a grand old lady and would have been 20 years old next month but now I hope she is happy chasing mice in cat heaven! Here she is as I remember her best.


















It's been a beautiful weekend here - a really good end to the Summer! Thanks for taking the time to pop by and have a good week!

Today's ingredients:
Celebrate - Stamps: Spiral Bouquet, Background Basics Retro, Scattered Showers; Inks: Spring Moss, New Leaf, Lavender Moon, Plum Pudding; Papers: Lavender Moon, Plum Pudding, Stampers Select White; Other bits: Nestabilities, little gems, sewing machine.
Soaring - Stamps: Everyday Button Bits, Background Basics Retro; Inks: Plum Pudding, Spring Moss, Berry Sorbet; Papers: Berry Sorbet, Polka Dots, Stampers Select White; Other bits: Sweet Blush Vintage Buttons, Nestabilities, sewing machine.

Beautiful cards, Chris! I'm so sorry about Jalpa. She was a sweetie. Glad I got to meet her.

Lovely Chris - how on earth do you get that tiny border round your Nestabiliities?

Sorry to hear about your cat, Jalpa - my Tabitha was 19 1/2 when I lost her and it was heartbreaking. Thinking of you now.
