Welcome to my Royal Blog Tour Castle!

Welcome weary traveller to my castle! I have been looking forward to your visit, preparing to make your stop here enjoyable, and even have some blog candy you can sign up for (information at the end). My castle’s royal colors are Bashful blue, Marina mist, and Crumb cake.
Rest a bit and view my castle’s gallery of 4 x 4 elegant cards with matching envelopes. These cards use Stampin’ Up’s satin ribbon, crochet trim lace, pearls, and the Timeless Treasure stamp set – so fitting for royalty. Here is the first card for your viewing pleasure:


Please let me offer you a hot beverage with my next card, designed to coordinate with our graceful teacups.
  

I saved the best for last – this gorgeous card took a little longer to make, but is was well worth it. It was inspired by my lovely satin with pearl buckles shoes :-))



Please don’t forget to sign up for my blog candy:  Email me your name and email address to be put into the drawing : mklecuyer@hotmail.com.  This is what the blog candy is: 

The Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Die
 
Here is a snippet of a card using this embossing folder – so appropriate for royalty, don’t you think?



Now that you have rested up, your carriage awaits so you can continue on your creative journey to the next castle - Thank you for spending time here!

  31. Lovely job Princess Mary and looking forward to the tutorials!
    Your royal hands obviously have a knack for weaving...something as a spinner and weaver myself I can appreciate, envy and hope to emulate.

    Crossing my fingers and toes for the lattice folder too. This weaver has been coveting it big time. When I first saw it I thought twill weave pattern and then I thought it reminded me of a series of Jerusalem crosses. So many reasons to love it. Thanks for offering it among all the other loveliness.

    So glad too you didn't insist our comments be in Middle English or Shakespeare couplets! Must have been a bad dream last night but I've been sure someone would require that! LOL!
