It's time for another Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge!

Yep! It's Friday again. But, you all know that. Today it is challenge #29 and the theme this week is....
LACE IT UP!!! Now you can interpret that one or two ways, it's up to you!
Just have fun and let's see you enter the challenge. I NEED YOUR INSPIRATION!!! LOL

Here's what I did with the theme....
I love that lace. It reminds me of my Nanna's table runner from years ago, when she would get the tea service out on a Sunday. Awww, happy days. I still miss my Nanna. The 'steam' coming from the teacup reads..'One person can make such a difference and that person is you!' (From SU's Flight of the Butterfly set).
I coloured the tea set with Copics and made a 'lace' border with a MS punch before adding the real lace to the middle. The DP is DCWV.
Well I hope you like it and I hope you feel energised to hop on over to the Fairy Fun Fridays blog and give some love to the fabulous DT. Their cards are out of this world. Please join in, you never know, you could be next week's guest designer!!

Come back tomorrow when I will be having a mini blog candy to 'die' for!!!

Viv, I love the whole table runner idea and the colors are wonderful. Isn't it amazing how little things make us remember those dear to us.

Jackie said...

It certainly looks laced up to me Viv, and exceedingly pretty with it. Methinks you don't need inspiration at all, you give it yourself :o)
