CD Sunday - L is for...............

My 'L' is for Lilac.  I love Lilac and I am afraid that I am one of those who cannot resist having it indoors when in flower.  Just a few branches in a large vase looks wonderful.  Anyway I digress.  For my project this week I have chosen something from my latest Cd purchase - 'from the heart of the garden'  from Joanna Sheen - artist Jane Shasky.  I love all these images and I hope to use many of them.  Even if I don't they are beautiful to look at.
I chose to make 6 notelets and matching envelopes - all with a box to put them in. I printed out one of the toning backing papers on to card for the box and used a template from a Robert Addams CD.  This project isn't as simple as it looks because you have to be  very accurate in cutting out and folding - especially the envelopes.  I have discovered they go wonky very quickly without due care.
Here they are:

We had some lovely 'A La Mode' cards and many congratulations to Linby - our winner of an Ooh La La CD. 
I am looking forward to seeing many different 'L's' during this week.


  1. I share your love of Lilac Carol. These notelets are beautiful.
