This started out to be another valentine, but Marilyn had sent me a lovely card and in it she said she wanted a lilac bush in her yard. So since I had some stickers of lilacs I ended up with a note card.
The round dots under the words “You’re on my Mind” in the bottom right hand corner are lavender crystals.
The wording on the right hand sticker reads: “Of all good things upon the earth,
a faithful friend is best.”
I just took a 12 x 12 sheet of lavender paper, folded it in half, then half again to make a card shape. Then cut the open side and bottom edge with fancy fiskar scissors. Added a white sticker decorative tape across the middle of the front, glued a large red rose in the middle and rubbed on a gold “Just Because” wording. The wording on the bottom is a thicker clear plastic and underlined by lavender chrystal dots. I put a tiny pearl on one of the rose petals to represent a dew drop.
The inside are just two stickers of lilac flowers. I thought the verse on the one nice so used that. I will write a personal note before I mail it to Marilyn.
I will have to wrap tissue or something around the rose to protect it in the mail, and must be sure on the envelope to print “Please Hand Stamp – thank you”
I like it because it is simple, like lavender color and rose flowers. Also my mom had a lovely lilac bush in the yard of one of the houses we rented. It smelled wonderful. Lilac flowers are so pretty. She would cut some lilacs and add some pussy willow branches in a vase for our dining room table.
