Lovely Lace


Well today's challenge at Sharon Johnson's ( click on her name on right) is to use lace on your card. I'm not much of a lacy type old lady but did find a piece to use on my card. My little birdie in the tree is singing a sweet little song to me...it has that trill to it, do you hear it?? Better then little birdie in the tree...don't drop that white stuff all over me! My bird is from Crafty Secrets cotton scraps called flowers,my phrase is from Impression Obession, the embellishments are Petaloo, and I used my Nestie and a Fiskar's border punch. What else you want to know?
Took my friend Clara out for her 93rd. birthday yesterday and before lunch she emitted sounds like my coffe pot does in the early a.m.& then after lunch the crickets came out loudly as she proudly passed gas on the way out of the restaurant. What a funny old lady....she asks me " Hey Pat did you hear that one???" I praised her soundly letting her know what a great gas passer she is.
Have a great weekend fellow stampers
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO FLOURISHES...my card is a twofer and it's my happy birthday card to the great company that Flourishes is!

OH MY GOSH MOM... too much information! HA! When it comes to your card...love the way you strung the lace up the side -- that is really pretty! That cotton scrap is just toooo pretty! I have that one. I'll have to pull it out and use it!

Oh my, I don't quite know what to say about Clara! I guess she's entitled at that age to do whatever she wants! Your card is GORGEOUS! I never thought about cutting out Cotton Scraps with Nestabilities! I'll have to try that! Have a great weekend, you sweet lady!

Ha Ha, I'm cracking up over your little escapade with your friend! At 93, it's fabulous that she still goes out to lunch, even if she is a bit windy! LOL
Your card is so pretty! I love the lacy border edge and how perfectly it goes with that pretty bird image and flowers!
