Most Coverted at Alphabet Challenge

Hello and Welcome to another Alphabet challenge and it's the letter 'C' and  this week we would love you to use your most 'Coverted'.
I have used papers that were bought at least 2 years ago  - I have taken them out of the drawer lots of times and just couldn't cut into them -  just too gorgeous!  They are 12x12 and were in a box of 'reduced' items, at a Craft Fair and  there was only 5 sheets!  My vintage lace is also something that I am always very reluctant to cut into, the flowers are cut from a lace collar given to me by an old lady friend many years ago.  My Rubber Stampeed image 'Woman in Repose'  is one that I had covered for many years - I was lucky last year to see it for sale on EBay!  So.... ALL very covereted!
So go on girls - join us in our challenge and let us know what is your 'Most Coverted'

I am entering this in:
  Fab & Funky - Add a sentiment
  Cards and More - Lace & Pearls
  Tuesday Alchemy - Anything Goes
  Crafty Boots - Something Old, New, Borrowed or Blue (Old lace, Blue papers)
  Its All about the Vintage - Dreams of Spring with Lace

I'm off to GNP at Harrogate tomorrow, can't wait!!! - If you see me there, please say 'hello'

Whatever you're doing - enjoy!

I think so many us are the same Avril and hate using some of our stash, I know I often gets something out, stroke it then put it away for another day.

The image you have used is one I really like, although not seen mine in a while, but if it helps any I think you have made a gorgeous card with your coverted goodies.

Beautiful vintage card Avril... can imagine how difficult it was to actually use something you covet so much... don't know if I could have managed it!!

Was lovely to see you yesterday.. and the gang too!

These papers are stunning and were made for this lady! I can see why you would not want to use the paper! The lace really adds a delicate feel! Beautiful card! Maybe you should try to photo copy the paper? Oh thank you so much for sharing by blog candy, really appreciate that! Hugs!
