Lace

Morning everyone! I thought I had all the time in the world to get my pictures up for this week's challenge over at the Paper Shelter. How wrong I was! It got dark so soon. I love it when the clock it put backward and we get back an hour, and that happens in October maybe? Well, I had forgot that we get earlier and earlier darkness as well. LoL I will from now on pretend that I am on Shirleys team. That would give me an extra week for the photographic part. LoL

The theme of the week is a favourite of mine, almost on the same spot as my charms and that is LACE. So that is what we are going for this week, lace on your projects and you are ready to go. How nice isn't it?


I decided to make my card with a very fresh creation from the Paper Shelter. It wasn't my plan from the beginning but when your hands are shaking so bad that not even a A4 sized paper would help you match the marker with the paper, then there is nothing elso do than use the precoloured versions. However this is a bit different as it's more of an adult style to it and not a colouring image. I have a few friends this will fit perfect, just as it would for myself. I went with the Chocolate version. You need to keep your priorities, right?

I paired the whole thing up with designer papers from First Edition. I thought they would go well with the browns and the minty colour. I love that combo by the way. Then I kept adding a little of this and a little of that. Ending up with this creation. The lace is from my lovely friend Gail, also a member of my team. Such a sweetheart! Thanks! The wooden heart from Annelie's birthday gift to me. Sweet wonderful you! :)

Hi Marie, you are so right the evenings are already drawing in and the light soon changes especially when its a wet day, I hate winter to be honest but each has their own seasons and Im definitely a Spring and Summer person. I hope you manage to get ahead of yourself Im trying to do so to, but its not always easy when you have other things going on in your life and you certainly have enough with your health and your young sons, are they back at School yet? hugs Shirleyxxxxx

Fabulous paper and colour combinations. The rich dark chocolate colour of the sentiment contrasts so beautifully with the lighter papers.The flowers frame it so well and really draw the eye to the focal. Lovely! Thanks for playing along with our Three or More Patterned Papers at Craft Your Passion this week. I hope we see you again soon.
