Lace, Lace, and More Lace at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge



Happy Friday to each of you!! I hope you are finishing up a wonderful week and are looking forward to a marvelous weekend!! I will be going to St. Louis for a few days for a little R&R and to take a family friend to see the Cardinals and Phillies baseball game as a part of his Happy 90th Year Birthday present!!! So I will report to you when I get back!!! I have pre-scheduled some postings so let's all keep our fingers crossed that Mr Blogger Man is back with us!!!

In spite of all of the Blogger problems...arghhhhhh!!!...today is a new challenge over at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge where we are hosted by Claudia who has selected the theme Make it Lacy so we would like to see LACE featured somewhere on your project – either real or faux/punched/die cut/ paper etc. Doesn't that sound like fun?!? So please come on over and play along with us and have a look at the wonderful sample cards done by the other DT members. There are a couple of fabulous prizes this week--Jacobi.nl and Creative Treasures are our magnificent sponsors for this challenge.

For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting is PTI. The DP is from the Crate Paper Portrait Collection and all background panels are machine stitched. The image I have used is that darling little Tilda with Lace Jeans from the Butterfly Dreams Collection at Magnolia-licious. She was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics, adding a touch of Stickles to the lace and hairbow and Liquid Pearls to the buttons. She was cut out with double Nesties and encircled with some sweet lace which was a special gift from the very talented Suzan--thank you so very much, Sweetie!! The midground panel was also encircled with the same lace. For the horizontal I used an organza ribbon tied into a double bow to dangle a silver heart charm from silver cording. The floral treatment is all from Wild Orchid Crafts: 30mm Wild Roses and Hip Rosebuds. To finish the front I used WOC Self-Adhesive Pearls to all corners.



The inside is quite simple. On the first panel I used the same lace from the front with another organza bow and on the second panel a triple Nestie and even more lace! Hey, the theme was MAKE IT LACY so I tried!!!! hahahaha

Thank you so very much for dropping by to have a peek at my little card and you know I love having you here! I would like to know what you think of my little girlie this week. Please come back often! Have a wonderful day and until our next meeting, BIG HUGS for YOU!!!

I have had house guests and have been a naughty commentator then blogger went down but I have thoroughly enjoyed catching up on your recent makes. Every one of them is beautiful! This little blue jean Tilda is particularly delightful but I have to say my fave from those I have failed to comment on is the post with the gift box and fairy card you made with your mother in mind. It really is divine! Hope you enjoy your trip!
Hugs Lesley

Stunning Card, Jacque! I love how you used all of that lace! I love lace on just about anything! You really found just about any place that you could put it...and did so! The flowers and the pearls look wonderful with this precious child!

I hope your friend enjoys this extra special birthday...and what a gift...time with you! And, a baseball (?) game! I hope the sun is out, and that our weather person is wrong. She is showing cloudy and cool...60's! I hope there is lots and lots of sunshine for you!
