It's only (at last?) Friday -- happy Friday, and happy start to a long weekend if you're Canadian! -- and I already have a Paper Smooches SPARKS card for this week's challenge! What makes that more amazing is that I wasn't really feeling the Trend Watch this week:
Lace just wasn't calling to me. But then when I was tidying some of my stash yesterday, I happened across my supply of crocheted mats -- handmade by my talented buddy and Drunken Stampers teammate Jessi -- and an idea was born.
The crocheted edge counts as lace in my books, but I also paired it with some lacy patterned paper. I really like the soft pink and grey colour scheme, with the pastel "squeals". I offstamped the yellow one first to soften it appropriately.
This card is also going into the current Simon Says Stamp challenge... to use a rubber or clear stamp.
And since it's only Friday, this could be your reminder to make something for this week's challenge! Unless, like me, the rest of your weekend is already filled with family, and turkey, and pumpkins... ☺
