Good morning on this.....

beautiful Friday. We have not had any rain in over a week now and let me tell you, my poor little flowers are not liking it too much. According to weather forecast we are supposed to get some of that monsoon rain this weekend, so we'll see. Since today is Friday it means that there is another Stamp Simply challenge over at Sharon Johnson's blog. Let me tell you, this lady comes up with some amazing challenges. This week she is asking to incorporate lace, hence the name of this challenge# 98 is "Lovely Lace". For more details head on over to Sharon's blog. As you all know I love me some lace and it does not matter at all if it is white, pink or brown, lace just gives a card that special something ;P. So, for this challenge I have this little card I put together with some lace I found at WalMart of all places and it was on clearance, so all I paid was 50 cents for a spool of lace. Don't you just love a bargain? Anyhow, my card base is made of PTI's Vintage Cream cs, and some of the delicious K&Company paper Blue Awning. Since the Blue Awning paper has this Vintage feel to it I had to make yet another Vintage card, but you all know that I love me some Vintage, right? :D:D:D So, here is what I cam up with, it's a pretty quick card, but it sure does not look like it, LOL!!









For my Friend....





Recipe:

Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, SU Not Quite Navy, SU Kraft, K&Company Blue Awning

Stamps: SU Elegant Cheer

Ink: Chalk Box Blue Iris, Staz-On white

Accessories: Cuttlebug embossing folder Textile, Nesties Labels 4, SU Hodgepodge Hardware Styled Vanilla, All Natural Accents mini cream roses, white crochet lace, white narrow satin ribbon, white sheer ribbon, Foam Tape, double sided tape, Vintage angel button


Sorry about the shadow in the picture. I took the picture outside and as I clicked the wind blew one of the branches of the tree in my front yard right over. Sorry!!!



What do you think, does this qualify for this challenge? I sure had fun making this card. Thanks so much for stopping by today and I wish all of you a happy and relaxing weekend.



Hugs,
