Its not a Moroccan Snowflake, its Lilac!

Happy Sunday folks!
This one is a scheduled post, Im either running around the house trying to do 10 things at once, or Im halfway down the M6 on my way to the Trade show at the NEC.
Anyways, here is another of my Moroccan samples from the GC Blockbuster shows.
My first instinct was to make this a snowflake but in January? I thought you might throw heavy objects at me if I did...
So its a....  its a.....  its a nice hanging up thingy, yep thats what it is! 
Actually you could put a mothball in the back and make it an air freshener.  I do have another idea but not sure yet until I try it, let you know ok.

The sentiment is embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Aurora powder,lovely stuff!
The rest of the sentiment is 'Hope for tomorrow' but it wouldnt all fit so I just inked up the top part.
All goodies used are available from Creative Expressions.

Thats all for today, have a good one!
Maybe a giveaway tomorrow....come back and see.


  1. I do love the look of these new dies they are very versatile and you can get similar effects with other dies of a similar design. Good idea for mothball holder, cant wait to here about your other ideas. xx hazel

  6. Snowflake or lilac hanging up thingy, it is still so pretty and delicate. You have inspired me to have a go at something similar using my Silhouette to do the cutting bits. If it works, I will post it. No heavy things being thrown from me. xx Maggie

  8. Hi Maria,
    Just when do you find the time to craft. Your such a busy lady. Love the lilac snowflake today. I wish I could go to the trade shows. LOL
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L

  9. I admired this when you demoed it on C&C and stored the idea in my to do part of my brain. I thought about using this as a 'Thank You' for someone special!

  10. Beautiful and I love the colors! So pretty.

  11. Tis lovely Maria safe trip xxx

  12. Hi again,
    This is so pretty and I didn't think snowflake at all, love the lilac too. A have seen something like this before and it was made twice, back to back and glued onto a ribbon wrapped stick to make a fairy wand. Feathers, glitter and bling were also added for sparkle (being a Fairy wand).
