Pion Design - Lavender Wishes

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing a birthday card featuring the Pion Design collection "Scent of Lavender". Unfortunately, I believe this collection has been discontinued, but it remains one of my all time Pion Design favourites.

The filigree leaf die cuts are from Prima, the flowers were handmade using Distress inks, the pearls are all from The Duck's Doodahs, and everything else is from my stash.

The weather here has been quite lovely for this time of year. Some days have been so nice, that I've been craving setting the patio up! Of course, the minute I did that, you just know it would snow, so I'll be patient and wait just another little while. lol. Still sharing some older photos, but I do plan to try and get out for a walk this week.

For my birds, a female Swallow...

a Red Breasted Nuthatch...

and a sweet little Blue Jay...

From last year, this is The General. Oh how I hope to run into him again this spring!

A youngster trying to stash a nut in one of my patio stumps...

enjoying the morning sun...

Such a hilarious shot of a trail friend from last year...

That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments.

  22. Another wowzer from you Pamellia.gorgeous laces and beautiful Ribbons with that pop of purple
    Just stands out to the fullest. Thank you for your lovely comments.i don’t sell overseas because of the postal costs.
    You have lots of gorgeous items that you use yourself ,but if you pop over to my eBay you will see the products that I sell, it only started as a hobby but it’s turning out to be full time, do t have much time to craft. Raided a few charity shops for old beads for the pins I am hoping to make found some quite nice pieces which I will take a part and use.

    Spring is here now and all the birds are starting it nest build,and everything is starting to wake up in the garden. your pics a fab and you must have lots of pleasure taking them.

  23. What a BEAUTIFUL card! Probably my favorite with the lavender tones, those stunning flowers and the overall design! Squealing over the way you tied your ribbon and tulle over the front into that sweet bow! I'm casing this one for sure to see if I can even come close! NOT!

    As always, I really love your photos! I adore the fluffy blue jay. He must be a toddler. I saw a pair of jays last evening chasing each other around, and the male was such a handsome birdie. Immediately, I thought of you and how you are able to catch this magic with your camera! Such talent you have! Hugs!

  24. Oh, another amazing card, so, so pretty Pamellia. Your lace daffodils are awesome and the way you have used them on this card is stunning. Beautiful colours and I also love the pearl cluster.

    By the way, your nature photography just gets better and better - you have so much talent my friend.
