Here's The Card Concept's inspiration photo:
Oh how I LOVE lilacs!
Our first home had huge bushes, we even had a path that you could walk through them. They were much taller then me, and the blossoms were so healthy and gorgeous. And the fragrance...so soft and sweet, both white and purple. I do miss those bushes!
At the home we are now, we do have a smaller bush growing on a hill behind our house. The trouble is, I can't even get up to it to get a bouquet...the hill is WAY to steep, and I end up sliding all the way down. It's not a pretty sight..LOL!
BUT every spring, I find a bouquet sitting on my counter, and the fragrance fills the house. My hubby climbs up that steep hill and cuts me a large bunch because he knows how much I love them:) And yes, sometimes he slides down too, but does it anyway!
Well, I didn't have any lilac stamps or dies, so I used a Memory Box Honey blossom Sprig instead. The blooms are cut with some shades of purple from Stampin' Up. I adhered them onto an Avery Elle wonky rectangle, which I just realized I use for almost every card I make lately! There's just something about those stitches...
I also use this sentiment a lot lately, from Penny Black's Sprinkles and Smiles. I guess I need dig into my other stamps and give this a rest too!
I hope you join us this week at The Card Concept...we would LOVE to have you join us!
