'L' for Lace at Alphabet




Hi Folks, its time for another letter over at Alphabet Challenge and this week its Team B - and we have 'L for Lace'  chosen by yours truly.
For my DT piece I have used IndigoBlu's Elizabeth Bennett for the main image, coloured with Distress Markers.  My lace is TH Tattered Doily and an extra strip of crochet lace. The flowers are made using the Floral strip die.
My very talented teamies have some wonderful inspiration for you, so please pop over here.  Don't forget, we now do a Top 3 for each challenge and offer a Winner's badge.

I am entering this at:
  Southern Girls - No Spoolin (no ribbon/twine or cotton)
  Rhedd and Rosies - Anything Goes
  Crafting for all Seasons - Bingo (top line - pink- flowers and blue)
  Crafty Cardmakers - Birthday
  Totally Papercrafts - Make your own Flowers

I am pleased to report that the Wedding Invitations are finished - whew!
Now - just Order of Service, Place Cards, Table Settings Menus and Thank You cards left to finish - why did I offer a design with more than one die cut -  I have been die cutting in the garden this week - it looks as if someone has sprinkled confetti!!

That's it for now, I think a little bit of 'me' crafting time is in due tonight, and I hope to do some catching up in Blogland later.
