My Time to Craft DT Challenge #280 Lace

Good mor - er- afternoon! Goodness, Saturday is speeding past, we have been madly tidying up as we're having visitors for tea. Not that the place is immaculately tidy, of course, but it's what my mother rather dryly called 'lived-in' instead of a total tip. However, all the craft things that osmosed their way downstairs since Christmas are now dumped in the Craft Hovel, and that needs tidying!!!

Tomorrow.

For now here is my card for this week's My Time to Craft Challenge, which is Lace. Nice and easy!


it's ages since I coloured sweet Tilda, and I wanted to use the Magnolia Doohickey lace die that edges the horizontal band(I can't find it online to link to, but there are loads of gorgeous Magnolia lace dies out there!) so here she is!

The sketch is from Dawny P's blog


The papers are from Basic Grey's 'Porcelain' collection. The image and mat had their corners cut with a Woodware Reverse corner rounder punch. The card looks like Kraft, but in fact is old gold centura pearl card. The lace is from stash and the ribbon is American Crafts. The butterflies were made with a Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch and I went over them with clear Wink of Stella. The sentiment is a vellum sentiment from a Freckled Fawn kit.

Do go and see the gorgeous lacy creations that my teamies have made, they will inspire you!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
