Use Lace at Pile it On

Coffee of the Day - Maple Pecan

The new challenge at Pile it On this week is to use lace. well that is an easy one for me, since I have it all over the place - new, old, pink, brown, purple, blue, you name it - I've got it! :)

and before I get too far along with my post, thank you so much to those of you who left such kind comments about my seizures. I take medicine every day to keep them under control, but sometimes they sneak along and creep in anyhow. not fun, by any means. but thank you again! it means a lot! I'm inching my way along and hope to be back to my usual sassy self in no time. ;)

The image comes from Whoopsi Daisy, senti is Create with TLC, and papers are from the Bo Bunny Vicki B collection. Her shoes and the flower in her hair are painted with pink poinsettia blingz for super glittery shine. Flower centers were dotted with an orange glitter gel pen. butterflies were highlighted with a spica glitter pen. lace is vintage. Primas are super old from my stash. thought she needed a bit more bling, so I added a rhinestone flourish. Faux stitching finishes the card.

Card Makin' Mamas - something old (these prima flowers are waaaaaaay old! grins)
Paper Craft Journey - floral
Crop Stop - bit of old (distressing)
DYSU - pattern paper
My Mum's Craft Shop - fave color combo (anything with pink!!!)
Stampin' with the Dragon - anything goes
Card Mad Fairy - bows and/or ribbons
Chocolate, Coffee, and Cards - glitter
Crafty Catz - buttons and bows
Stampin' for the Weekend - out with the old (Prima flowers as mentioned above)
Fresh Brewed Designs - buttons and bows
Papertake Weekly - buttons, bows, bling, & blooms
Whoopsi Daisy - let's bling it

What a fantabulous idea of using lace in this manner, Jennifer! It's a darling card. I hope the seizures have minimized, and that you don't have to contend with any today. Someone so sharing and kind should not have to contend with such pain and awful symptoms. Healing thoughts coming your way! ((( gentle hugs )))
