For my dear friend, B

I have a lovely friend who is as addicted to trees as I am (you probably know exactly who I am talking about). I received a lovely little parcel from her last week containing some Lavinia trees and a pack of their fabulous card. Thank you so much my friend. Very much appreciated. This thank you card has reached it's destination now, so I am safe to post it here. I've sent her a bit of spring sunshine to compensate for that weather they have been having in the fens!
I used Adirondack inks in espresso, lettuce, meadow, sunset orange, sunshine yellow and peach bellini with stamps and ink dusters. The other plants in the foreground are a mixture of Lavinia and Inkylicious stamps. I used white gel pen to highlight the trees and gold to highlight the flowers.
Thanks for looking!

I didn't venture far into blogland yesterday Sally, so apols I am only just here.

But agree with all the others that you card is gorgeous and beautifully balanced. I am just a little miffed that I got the ink list a little wrong, I didn't see the espresso, but when I take a closer look of course it's there.

So glad to read that we are not a minority group, in fact we could have our very own challenge coming along one day.
