Just Magnolia and Hanglar Challenge - Lovely Lace

Happy Friday - Life is beginning to feel a bit more normal. Just a little bit, but I will take it! Life has been just topsy turvy lately! Now it is still exciting around here and lots going on. Heck 21 baby goats out side, and 6 dogs in my house can attest to that! (Ammo is living with us until we find him a new home) But for some reason this week I have begun to feel like I am getting things settled around me and that makes me feel better and when we feel better? WE CRAFT! Whoo Hoo!

So in plenty of time I got today's Just Magnolia and Hanglar Challenge done! My Mom asked me for a few more Thank You cards. She had back surgery just over a month ago, and is doing pretty darn good I might add. She is even back to driving! Go Mom! I am so proud of her. Anyway she has used a few of my past Thank You cards recently, and she has asked for a few more... didn't have them in my million cards stashed, so I have made up a few for her special. Hope she likes them.

This weeks Theme at Just Magnolia and Hanglar Challenge is Lovely Lace. Well that is a pretty theme....

I pulled out some of my antique lace, and then went for paper to match. Love the 7 Gypsies Conservatory Paper collection - perfect to go with vintage lace right? I used Kraft card stock for the base, with a cream colored mat. Then I layered a couple of pattern papers around and sewed things down. I found one of my favorite Hanglar images, and colored her up with my Copics, then shaded with pencils. Love how rich that makes the image. I die cut her into a oval, and then shaded the edge of the oval with pencil as well. Why.. well I couldn't find my Distress ink on my desk.. LOL So I just used a pencil and blended it! A few mulberry roses with some Fiskars Tree punches. Yes.. those are trees.. but I like how they look like branches, and the shapes behind the roses.

For the sentiment I used Sizzix Wingo Zingo Alphabet die, and spelled out my Thank You.

Inside finished off as well...

So a great challenge this week at Just Magnolia and Hanglar Challenge! Wonderful prize as always up for grabs. But also ... you can join in on a DT search on the Challenge blog just by joining us!!! Seriously so find some Lace and pop your card on.

Well what is your plans for the weekend? Me? A bit of cleaning, and I am still trying to re-organize my craft room. I have no clue who keeps coming in here and totally messing things all up and turning it into a disaster area. :0)

Have a great Friday - and see you tomorrow for Animal Crackers.
