Good Morning all!
I've titled this post "Finally Found" as I've been looking for a paper like this for, what feel like, years. There is a story to this, when I was younger (about 20 years ago!) I worked at Next Interiors managing one of their Interior Departments. Every fabric, wallpaper etc was grouped into collections, one that I loved immediately was called Passiflora. This had an overblown Pink rose pattern on a duck egg blue (their name I'd call it turquoise) background on a woven linen fabric. Whilst I loved this fabric it was, at the time, dated and not fashionable. Within a year of joining the company it was discontinued and reduced in the sale, I think it had been in their range for years! To this day I kick myself for not buying any, especially as it was eventually reduced to about £2 a metre (told you it wasn't fashionable!)
For the last few years I've been looking for anything that remotely matches the pattern and colour combination. Finally a few weeks ago I found the new First Edition paper pack I've been using so much recently. Here are the cards I made first with my special paper!
The reason I haven't blogged these before is two fold, firstly I wanted to do them justice with my photographs. Secondly I intended to give this card to Wendy as her birthday card!
I still don't think I have done the paper or the cards justice with my pics however as Yesterday (today as I'm writing this) was Wendy's birthday I've run out of time!
I keep a lot of my cards, not really knowing what to do with them or because I like to look at them sometimes (sad I know). However with this card, as the paper has so much meaning for me, I really wanted to give some of it to someone who has really influenced my crafting and blogging.
I have added lots of pictures to this blog post and I fully understand if you find it indulgent but well I've enjoyed it, hope you too Enjoy...
