Tuesday Throwdown - Lace and Doilies


It's Tuesday and time for another challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.  This week our theme is lace and doilies.

As always we have a fab sponsor and this week it's Robyn's Fetish who have very kindly given us some lovely images to work with, plus if the random-number-picker-thingy picks you will win some images too!

Here's my card using the image "Two for Tea":

I've treated myself to a new paper pack - this one is Spring Drop by First Edition - it's really pretty.
My sentiment is punched with the Stampin Up Word Window Punch. I think I may wear this punch out before long - but it's just so handy to use for a quick sentiment.  I bought a set of mini sentiments which were designed to fit this punch - but when I have a spare hour or two(!!) one day I might have a go at doing my own!

Anyway as I'm scheduling this post at 2 o'clock in the morning I really should go to bed. (The main reason I'm up so late is I decided to have a  little snooze on the sofa this evening - just for 5 minutes! and then woke up at 11pm with loads to do still.

I'll be back to add some challenges on later on in the evening.
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

ABC Challenges - Anything Goes

Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Have a great day!

Julie, I dearly love the doily and plaid paper together. Fab coloring on the tea pot image! Wonderful lace. Did you dye it or did you get it already that color? It just works so well on your card.
