Lace and Blog Candy!!!

My next door neighbor had an estate auction two weeks ago, and there was quite a lot left over,
My Dad and I went over to the house and I spotted a huge box of vintage lace in beautiful condition. I asked how much he wanted for it and he gave it to me for free! I was thrilled, and finally got around to going thru it today. As you can see from the card I made today I incorporated some of the lace into my card! I have never used lace on a card, and I love what it adds to a card! I used an older Sarah Kay image I have had for awhile, and colored it with Bic Mark-its, and my SU markers. The DSP is by Cosmo Cricket and it is called "Material Girl". I also used the matching buttons that go along with the dsp collection. I used my Janome to sew around the edges, and the lace scallop was hand made by me! Now for the fun part, because I have SO much lace, and I know I will never use it all I am offering up BLOG CANDY to share my lace with YOU!


Just so you can get a better idea of how much lace there is I put it all in a basket. There is a TON of lace! Now, there are 3 ways you can win this candy:


1st - become a follower

That is so much lace! The card is beautiful. I will add your candy to my side bar. In the meantime, I should raid my momma's lace stash.

Rebecha said...

Btw, I don't know how to post pictures that automatically contain links like you have in your sidebar. If you can share with me how you do that, I'd so appreciate it.

Just too cute. I love your card. The subtle colors work so well together!
