Lavender and Lace at Woodware

Evening Everyone,
I hope you are all well and warm.
I have had another lovely day at SirStampalot.
Chris and Mel from the DT arrived to play in the studio, and we have had a wonderful time sharing ideas, coffee and biscuits. I am going to be the size of a house by the time I get home lol.
I have also been treated to a 'shower voucher' by one of Janice's customers.
I can't wash my hair while I am up here since the flat doesn't have a shower attachment in the bathroom, and I really can't be bothered to use a jug.
Last time I was here Kay invited me to her house lto use her shower, and now it has become part and parcel of my visit lol. She even made me a lovely card with a voucher inside.
I have managed to be creative amongst all the talking and tea making, although I did have to wait for the Woodware order to arrive so that I could finish tonight's card, as I didn't have any lace with me.
 The theme this week at Woodware  is Lavender and Lace and so I made this card to enter the challenge.
The main image is another of the new designs from Jane Gill. I didn't have suitable colours with me, and my shopping basket is large enough as it is so I decided to try my hand at colouring with Janice's Copics.
Not the best shading in the world, but not too bad for a first attempt.
I do have to admit that I still prefer my dye based inks to colour with, but the colours in the Distress Markers and inks were just not right at all for this challenge.
I found some lovely papers in the shop for the background, and added some Faux Stitching and a punched border, but it needed some lace, so I had to wait for that to arrive.
I also found some lovely buttons from Woodware which matched perfectly.
I have another class to teach tomorrow evening so I need to finish a couple more samples in the morning.
Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to check out the challenge HERE.
Hugs Kimx
