Mmmmmm, Chocolate & Lace :)


Hi peeps and hope all is good with everyone xxx

This should have appeared on Monday so it’s my better late than never card. Oohhhh what a trauma I had with it - it was just one of many traumas that day I can tell you!!!

So PC probs yet again meant that I was very verry late getting it over to Bev who was just wonderful about it (thank you sweetie xxx) and hugest of apols to her and the rest of the DT.

But it’s sorted now, so here’s my card for the fabulous  Wild Orchid Craft challenge which is

Lovely Lace

No Copics were harmed during the making of this card – I did the cheaty thing again and used one of the awesomely fab die cuts from the equally awesome Lili Of The Valley – and why not!!!!

I agree, lace is just awesome stuff and I cannot stop using it at the mo.


Especially when it’s as pretty as this.

This is one of the  newbies from Paul & Siri and Wild Orchid Crafts and it’s  Guipure lace. It’s 5cm wide and is just beautiful ….

… as are these gorgeous blooms which are also from Wild Orchid Crafts – natch :)

There is a really fab tutorial that our Mindy has done over at the Wild Orchid Crafts blog which shows you how to assemble clusters of flowers - you can see it here . That girl is sooo talented!!

I made a pattern using some of the WOC pearls which you can see here peeps. And the lovely choccie spotty paper is of course a bit of Pink Petticoat yumminess :)  These are not my usual colours at all,  but I have to say that I really like how it turned out.

It’s another shortie here today peeps as I have housework to do, stuff to get ready for a class on Friday and I need to make a dent in the paper mountain on my desk – grrrr!!

Now where is that brush lol !!!

So on that note I better get to it. Any tips peeps on how to cram a quarts worth of jobs into a pint pot sized day? I just wondered when I typed that if there is now a metric equivalent – how sad am I at times!!!!!.

Have a great day and see ya soon if not sooner, and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
