Yippee TGIF!!  This has been one long week.  Any big plans for the weekend?  I had wanted to get to the movies this weekend but don't think I'll be able to fit it in.  We work the last Saturday of every quarter and it's that time again...ugh. Sunday morning we have Jordan's pinewood derby for cub scouts.  I don't know whose idea it was to do it on a Sunday morning but anyway we are very excited.  He put the finishing touches on it tonight- it's covered bumper to bumper with rub-ons! LOL

I have 2 cards today for the challenge on Cath's blog Moxie Fab World.  The challenge is called Diggin' on Doilies and Lace and I almost passed it up because I didn't think I had the necessary supplies but then I decided to dig through my stash and found the lace which I think definitely qualifies. Then I found this sheet of dp in my stash and thought it had a kinda doilie/lacy look to it. Gorgeous paper but no name so I'm not sure who to credit.  Here is the 1st card for the challenge.
My dragon fly stamp is from Susana's store and was actually a freebie she gave with one of my orders.  I heat embossed it in seafoam white and then inked it with a q-tip using regal rose from Stampin up.  All cardstock and the sentiment is from Stampin Up. I accented the dragon fly with a white pearl that I colored with my Stampin Up markers.
Card #2 for the challenge:
I think this card actually is much better because the lace has become the focal point along with the butterflies which coordinate well with this lace.  My butterflies are rubber stamps from Lockwood and Co. that I, again, heat embossed in the seafoam white.  I just love this shade of white!! My sentiment is from Stampin Up and the irridescent accents are stickers from Stampendous.
Amazing what you can find in your stash when you are challenged!  Glad I didn't pass this one up.  It was a fun challenge and quite different from what I normally do. Thanks for having a look and enjoy your weekend!!
