Friends Are Flowers That Never Fade

Hi Everyone,
Sandy, here with a very late post today, sorry about that. I had a delivery of some new products yesterday, so I've been busy today adding them to the website today.
I have used a couple of them today, the rest you can check out in the News category.

Too bad I missed out on the first real Spring day, the weather has been glorious today!
The cherry trees are blooming in the garden and it looked so pretty against the clearblue and cloudfree sky, and that's what inspired me for today's card:
Once again I have combined papers from Maja Design's Vintage Spring and Vintage Summer Basics collection. The image is from Pion Design.

Here you get a better look at the frantage embossing:
 Speaking of frantage; unfortunately my delivery has been delayed, so it won't be here until next week. :-(

If you are a subscriber of the LLC Newsletter and have had a chance to check your e-mails, you are already aware of this, but for those who are not, I'd just like to inform you about planned maintenance work next week.

As of Monday morning 9 AM GMT, the Live & Love Crafts website will be taken offline whilst we upgrade the software the store is running on, and add some new features and functionalities.
Apologies for this obvious inconvenience; I'll of course make an announcement announce when the site is back up again.

Here are some close up pics:
 The middle rose is one of the new Metal Roses, they come in silver (20mm) and Copper (11mm):

New are also these Vintage Crochet Flowers, available in four different colours:

Please check out the rest of the new Arrivals in the News section!

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. A stunning card Sandy with a beautiful image, love all the frantage too.
    I just read the bit about the site maintenance, please don't be gone for too long I need my fix of LLC
    :o) I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Hugs Teresa xx

    1. Thanks Teresa; we'll try to be quick about it. Hubby has been running some tests on a replicated site yesterday, and apart from minor issues, it's been going well. Having said that, performing the upgrade on the livesystem is a completely different matter though as there are certain things that cannot be simulated in a test environment, so we'll just have to wait and see how we get on. Please keep your fingers crossed. /Sandy
