Tilda Plays The Lavender Heart Strings for Friday Sketchers AND Really Reasonable Ribbon AND WINNER AND SWEET STUFF!!



Happy Sunday everyone!! I hope you are having a most magnificent weekend! My weekend is GREAT...I am awake!! Monday through Friday with the radiation I am so sleepy and lethargic, I don't even recognize myself...I don't feel sick or anything...just totally OUT OF IT!!! But beginning on Saturday morning I am almost like my regular self...Gosh, only 5-6 more weeks of this craziness then it's Jacque bar the door!!! LOL

This week at Friday Sketchers we are hosted by the magnificently talented and creative Carole from England who designed a magnificently fun sketch for the Design Team to use for our sample cards and we all hope that you will jump on over and join in with us this week!! There is a very nice prize from Motivet for some lucky winner this week!! Please check out the blogs of the other Sassy Sketcher girls:
Bea, Carole, Claudia, Jeanette, Tanja

Also today is my first posting at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog so I hope you will also wander over there and see what's happening and become a follower so you don't miss any of the fantastic projects that are made each day.

For my card, I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is Bazzill and silver metallic CS, and the DP is from the Lilac Avenue Collection by Kaisercraft. The major panels are machine stitched. I stamped the darling Tilda With Violin on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics, adding Diamond Stickles to the feather wings and some Spica to the violin. She was grounded with a bit of Ultra Fine Koala Gray Flower Soft. This little sweetie was a special gift to many of us from Diana at Magnolia-licious and although I do not see her in stock, she will perhaps be coming out in a future collection. The horizontals are Sheer Woven Rosettes Lavender and Totally Twill Delphinium. Tilda was propped up on round and scalloped round nesties. Rather than the tag in the sketch, I rolled a piece of sheet music and tied it with Flower Soft 2MM Lilac Silk Ribbon . To finish the front of the card, I added an Iris Organza bow made with a Bow-Easy and trimmed with Pearls Pearl.

For the inside of the card I used pearl accent flourishes and a flat organza bow with pearls on the first panel. For the jotting panel I used another nestie set with a flat flower with pearl and twisted twill. Thanks, Claudia for the wonderful surprise!!




To match the card, I decorated a round papier mache box, painting it first with white platinum pearl acrylic paint. I used the rosette trim around the sides along with the twill ribbon, accenting the lid with pearls. For the top, all decoration is resting on a nestie base, adding lavender wild roses, a few pearl sprigs, a matching pearl-trimmed organza bow, and an organza butterfly. To give a touch of dimension to the wild roses I added a bit of Lilac Flower Soft. Sorry that the colors in the close up side view photos is not really accurate but thought you might want to see anyway...smile










And now for the WINNER of the Magnolia/Pink Tote SWEET STUFF...

CONGRATULATIONS to.... Danielle Champagne who said:

Hello Jacque, sorry to hear your week was awful. As this is the 1st of the month, let's hope things will change, will pray for that. Your card is lovely, as all your work is.

AND so you can celebrate with me on my first RRR posting, I have another wee bit of SWEET STUFF for some lucky commenter!! Please leave your comment before Friday, August 13 at Noon DST. Hope you like it!!

Hi Jacque,
Your card is stunningly beautiful. When I saw it I thought to myself "now that would be a lovely gift" The paper mache round box is superb and anyone would be impressed to have that on their dressing table. Love the organza roses.
I hope your radiation goes quickly for you and you aren't too ill. I pray that it will get better as the days go by.
Sorry I haven't commented for a little while as I have been ill myself. Hopefully I will soon be better.
Hugs marion

Ruthie said...

Hiya hun

On the home straight now love - radiation then done. Mum used to get tired from the travelling each day (we live local but she was nearly 80 at that point so it wore her out - she is now nearly 82!)...I know people got tired but didnt know that they were that exhausted - is that normal or are you having a particularly bad time of it? Is it worth mentioning it to them to see if there is anything they can help out with?
You write such positive posts, they are a joy to read!
Big hugs

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know you but you must have a heart that is so full it is bursting, with all the horrible things you have going on in your life and you want to share goodies with us along with your beautiful cards. Lavender is my favorite card and I did think about making one but thought it would be too much and I would not be partial when it come to looking good. It is one of the most beautiful cards in the world. I look at your site often and I have health issues which has me on disability however you are my inspiration that keeps me up. I just thought you should know you have had a powerful impact on my life and we are strangers I am sure I am not alone. I will continue praying for your health. God Bless you.
