Lavender comes in all Shades of Purple Right?

Today I have been fiddling around with all things of a lavender colour.  I have seen lavender as dark as Victoria plums and then as white as snow so realistically any shade of purple counts.

The Lavinia Stamps challenge this month is ‘ Lovely Lavender’ so here is my offering.  A symphony in all shades of lavender.

'Lovely Lavender'

It wouldn't be 'my card' if it didn't have a moon on it.  Go and see what the other crafters have made with this theme HERE

I am particularly fond of the little bow which was made using a table fork  Oh yes it was.  Want to see how? Then go HERE to my Pinterest board to see how it was done.  It has been a real help as up till now I had been tying bows all wrong. They would never sit straight, one loop was under the knot, etc etc.

Just a quick blog today as I really must crack on with some chores - ugh - and I am bribing myself with the reward of 2 whole days of crafting IF I get them all done today.

Bye for now.  As always please be kind enough to leave a comment if you come to visit.
