Good Evening my friends!
At the moment we probably have somewhere between 4-6" of snow on the ground with that much more expected again over night. I have not yet 'got up the gumption' to go out to clear the driveway since our holiday visiting is mostly complete and hubby (being retired now) has no need to venture out on the highways! I figure I'll wait until it's all done ... then ... fire up the snow blower and Get 'R Done!
So ... since I was enjoying a day of 'doing what I wished', I watched a couple of movies on Netflix and created a card for the current Cheery Lynn Designs challenge which is LACE (faux/real). I was watching the Jane Austen movies ... 'Pride & Prejudice' and 'Emma'. Needless to say, these movies helped put me in a 'lacy' frame of mind with the period clothing made of the finest silks & lace.
This creation is really not my true to form style as it is quite CAS compared to the many layers I usually enjoy but I'm VERY happy with it's quickness & outcome. Here's what I've used to create it:
Papers: Black cardstock, White cardstock, FabScraps 'High Tea' design paper
Cheery Lynn Designs Dies: DL113 Exotic Butterflies, DL101 English Tea Party, B136 Anastasia Border
Accessories: Tim Holtz 'milled lavender' distress Stickles, Versafine black ink, Serendipity rubber stamp
I think I mentioned in an earlier post that I've been 'summoned' for jury duty this week ... can you imagine ... Christmas week! [sigh] I did NOT have to go in today and I just checked their website and there are no selections being done tomorrow either ... so ... it appears after I get the driveway cleared tomorrow I will have yet another day to watch movies and craft ... YEAH!!!
Here are a few additional challenges to add this creation to:
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge - Add ribbon and/or Lace
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamps - Anything Goes
Stamp n Doodle - Anything Goes
Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again real soon!
As always . . .
