Lovely Lace

Good evening,

It's a late post for me today - I am running behind this week, due to my new work commitments over the last few days. We had a fabulous trip up north last Tuesday to visit the Crafter's Companion store in Newton Aycliffe - it was just like walking into Aladdin's cave, but full of crafty stash. And guess what! I didn't buy a thing!! How rude, but I simply didn't have time!

We are now busy getting the new store ready for the grand opening at the end of this month - so watch this space for further details.

I have my DT project for the new challenge over at Cardz 4 Galz which went live last Thursday (I told you I was running late - but better late than never, I say!) So here goes with the new theme which I chose


I used a pretty piece of design paper from my stash and added my 'Lovely Lace' panel. 

This was made from two die-cut 'Fleur de Lys' borders cut from sand cardstock, which has a piece of gorgeous cream lace running up the middle, which is then topped with a single pearl flower string.

I die-cut the pretty filigree bow from sand cardstock using my new 'Downton Abbey Grand Bow' die, and I love it! A large pearl in the centre and a stamped sentiment finishes of my design.

Sorry again for being late, especially for my own choice of challenge!
Hugz, Jan xx
